Autodesk is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Full form of CAD is “Computer Aided Design”. AutoCAD is two-dimensional and three-dimensional design software developed by the Autodesk Company. It includes a powerful suite of features to enhance workflow and create real-life maps, diagrams, structures and schematics.
IMPORTANCE OF AUTOCAD
a. It can help architects, designers, engineers and many more in creating designs and see if they will work before taking a final call and a risk on the project.
b. It is also very helpful for engineering students, especially those that enjoy the impact of engineering.
c. With its usage, the quality of the design improves. It saves time and energy and enabling professionals to complete projects quickly if they were drawing the designs manually.
d. It enables users to create documentation for their design.
FUTURE OF AUTOCAD
AutoCAD has a very special role to play in future. It is a well-established 2D drafting package. By being so good at the task of drafting, AutoCAD will remain relevant for the future.
Autodesk is changing this software in small ways. It is incorporating as much advanced 3D as possible without changing the identity of the software. It is also doing best to keep AutoCAD looking modern and cutting edge by including design techniques like “heads up” for data entry. It has also followed basic software modernization trends over the years, such as incorporating the Ribbon and being offered for sale via download mode.
Over the last few decades, 3D has taken a strong grasp in the architectural viewpoint of the business for visualization, and although AutoCAD can do 3D, the main concern for people right now is AutoCAD’s future is Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM needs a much more advanced software package. Products such as Autodesk® Revit® are advancing and being increased in the number of usage every year.
Although many companies are using Revit, many more are sticking to AutoCAD and its core functionality—very effective 2D & 3D drawing software. The companies who have already invested a lot of money in AutoCAD software and training will have to invest a lot to products such as Revit, which won’t be a feasible thing for many.
AutoCAD will keep making drawings for diverse industries for upcoming years with a requirement of very minimal learning knowledge.
