Introduction of Auto CAD
Auto CAD (Computer Aided Drafting & Designing) is commercial
software for 2D and 3D computer aided design.
Auto CAD was first released in 1982.
Auto CAD is used across wide range of industries by architects,
project managers, engineers, graphic designers and other
professionals.
The first version of Auto CAD was released in 1982 and released
that 27 December.

Application of Auto CAD in Different
Engineering Field
Civil Engineering Field
Auto CAD is widely used in the civil engineering field because of
its ability to plan sites a lot easier then hand drawing. The main
thing is that if you want to draft any civil engineering
structure (2D, 3D) such as buildings, bridges, roads, drainage,
pipeline, dams, intersection etc. with accuracy, speed and that
can be easily edited.
AutoCAD as a 2D-engineering drafting tool: You can use
AutoCAD to draw accurate 2D drawings for
any engineering domain and also use AutoCAD to render to 3D
models to help in visualization of the end product. It
helps engineers to design, analyses and solve design issues
resulting in accurate designs.

Architecture Engineering Field
AutoCAD Architecture has all of the features that AutoCAD has, plus
the addition of tools designed for Architects to enhance the
workflow of construction documentation.
AutoCAD is used to convey design intent, by utilizing Lines, Arcs and
Circles, to illustrate the design.
