What is the Autocad and how you can use it
Hi, everyone, in this post, we will introduce with Autocad. We will discuss why you need to learn AutoCAD and what Autocad can do.
Autocad one of the popular CAD software. CAD mean – Computer Aided Design. Maybe some of you first time heard this name. That’s because Autocad is more specific software. For instance, Photoshop is a design software and intended for use by designers. But in reality, Photoshop using almost by every computer user.
In a spite of Design in a name, Autocad is more technical than design software. Autocad used by professionals in the industry like engineering, architecture, manufacturing and other specific industries. Autocad has different versions for different industries. For instance Autocad Architecture or Autocad Electrical and etc. These versions of Autocad has specific tools based on different industry requirement. Specific tools can help draw more easier. But problem is that these versions are only for specific industry and if once you will want to draw something different from your standard work you can get some troubles. Because the special versions of Autocad have some differences in tools. But all what you want to draw you can do with standard version of Autocad. In the standard version of AutoCAD wouldn’t be special tools but you can draw anything.
I personally using AutoCAD more than 7 years. I’m working in sales equipment manufacturer company and my position is a technical designer (Technical drawing and Designer). My work consists of draw equipment 2D or 3D drawing and sends to the workhouse for manufacture. So I can surely say in Autocad we can do very different types of works. You can draw 3D drawing, add materials, create animation and make a realistic render. Of course, Autocad will not fully replace 3Ds Max. Because in 3Ds Max you can do modeling, materials and other things.
From this post, you’ll begin your travel into CAD software.
