    AutoCAD

    Created by Autodesk, AutoCAD is industry-leading software for 2D and 3D CAD and drafting. Versions of the program are available for both Microsoft Windows, and once again (after an absence for some years), the Apple Macintosh.

    The software includes an extensive set of customization tools, including scripting languages (AutoLISP, VBA, and others), and interfaces for programmers (APIs) including a C++ programming interface (ObjectARX). As a result, there are many freely available tools for AutoCAD users, as well as commercial products compatible with the software. Autodesk themselves have used the ObjectARX interface to produce vertical/discipline specific enhancements to AutoCAD such as AutoCAD Architecture (for architectural drawings), AutoCAD Civil (for civil engineers), AutoCAD Electrical (for electrical controls), etc.

    The popularity of AutoCAD means that its file formats (DWG and DXF) have become defacto standards for CAD interoperability. To some extent this popularity has even extended into the customization tools, and competitors have even tried to produce customization features compatible/similar to AutoCAD's own tools, such as their own versions of AutoLISP or ObjectARX.

    The full version of AutoCAD is quite expensive, so AutoCAD also do offer a cheaper (but reduced functionality) version of the program - AutoCAD LT. There are numerous differences between the full version of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, but some of the most important omissions in AutoCAD LT are the 3D capabilities, and customization features such as VBA, AutoLISP and ObjectARX.
