Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 What is AutoCAD used for?

AutoCAD is computer-aided design (CAD) software that is used for precise 2D and 3D drafting, design, and modeling with solids, surfaces, mesh objects, documentation features, and more. It includes features to automate tasks and increase productivity such as comparing drawings, counting, adding objects, and creating tables. It also comes with seven industry-specific toolsets for electrical design, plant design, architecture layout drawings, mechanical design, 3D mapping, adding scanned images, and converting raster images. AutoCAD enables users to create, edit, and annotate drawings via desktop, web, and mobile devices.

 Who uses AutoCAD?

AutoCAD is used by architects, engineers, construction professionals, and designers who need to: 

  • Design, draft, and document with precise 2D geometry

  • Access a comprehensive set of editing, design, and annotation tools

  • Work faster in an intuitive and customizable interface

 What is the difference between AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT?

One of the biggest differences between AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT is that AutoCAD LT provides precision 2D drafting and documentation capabilities, while AutoCAD also provides 3D functionalities. AutoCAD LT enables you to do simple customizations, but doesn’t support built-in programming capabilities (AutoLISP).
