AutoCAD is a drafting software used by architects and engineers to draft 2D or 3D designs of buildings, automobiles, other machinery, etc. AutoCAD is owned by Autodesk and built to meet the industrial requirement of an accurate and speedy design of any product before its modeling.

The AEC industry is the biggest user of AutoCAD, and primarily, the BIM services provider requires CAD-drafted designs first to prepare a model of a building. Buildings were constructed when their design was drafted accurately, following the modeling process that is done through BIM, i.e., Building Information Modeling.


Usage of AutoCAD

AutoCAD, by name, suggests that it is used by drafters and architects only. However, it is a tool with multiple applications. For example;


  • Engineers use it to design tools or even complex machine parts, including space shuttles.
  • CAD drawings are used to facilitate CNC machines to prepare prototypes for peculiar machinery parts.
  • Irrespective of size, AutoCAD can be used to fabricate pieces and help make a giant machine itself.
  • When it is about 4D, i.e., simulating transforming space over time, AutoCAD is a helpful tool.
  • In the Aerospace industry, AutoCAD plays a major role.
