What is drafting in AutoCAD?
Computer Aided Design (CAD) refers to using computer software to help draft designs and technical drawings instead of having to draw detailed plans by hand.
These designs can be two-dimensional or three-dimensional and using CAD software often saves lots of time creating a design plan.
AutoCAD is a piece of CAD software created by Autodesk and is intended for professional use in creating design plans for projects such as manufacturing, infrastructure, architecture, and construction.
Additionally, AutoCAD can be used in media and in the entertainment industry to create visual effects.
While AutoCAD is far from the only CAD software available, its versatility and use in a number of different industries make learning AutoCAD drafting an important skill.
