CAD, or computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), is technology for design and technical documentation, which replaces manual drafting with an automated process.
If you are a designer, drafter, architect or engineer, you have probably used 2D or 3D CAD programs such as AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT software. These widely used software programs can help you draft construction documentation, explore design ideas, visualise concepts through photorealistic renderings and simulate how a design performs in the real world.
Now when you subscribe to AutoCAD®, get access to AutoCAD 2D and 3D CAD software, plus industry-specific toolsets. Enjoy cross-platform workflows with the AutoCAD Web and Mobile apps.
Tim Campbell, designer and principal of Studio Tim Campbell, uses AutoCAD as his CAD software tool of choice.
The new AutoCAD web app is included when you subscribe to AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. With no install required, you can extend your workflows and view and edit your CAD drawings in a simplified interface from anywhere with an internet connection and a web browser.
