    CAD

    CAD ("Computer Aided Design") is the process of designing things on a computer (especially by engineers and architects). Applications include building architectural design, civil engineering, and construction, as well as electrical, mechanical and other types of engineering.
    • 2D CAD software generally allows users to construct detailed and accurate technical drawings using vectors.

    • 3D CAD software generally allows users to construct detailed and accurate 3-dimensional models of their designs, and then are able to convert them into drawings.
    Probably the leading CAD software is AutoCAD. Other popular CAD packages include AutoCAD LT CorelCAD, MicroStation, and TurboCAD.
