AutoCAD

AutoCAD

Released in 1982 by Autodesk, Inc., AutoCAD was one of the first computer aided design (CAD) and drafting applications. Today it is among the leading 2D and 3D CAD design tools and is available for the Mac and Windows platforms.

The latest version, AutoCAD 2013, includes new features such as Section and Details views, the context-sensitive PressPull tool, and the ability to preview changes to object properties before applying them.
