I would recommend this product to a customer that can afford it and has money to blow. There are cheaper ways to teach drafting for educational institutions, but businesses that can afford it can easily justify the cost.This software is easily the most popular and easy-to-use drafting tool-set available to students and engineers today. Having both used and managed this software for students, it is easy to use with guidance. Users can quickly transform their thoughts into a fully-fledged 3D model or building plan within a couple of clicks.

Autocad has helped us create precise drawings really easily, it's libraries are so complete that most of the drawings are almost pre drawn. If you can afford it's really high price then it's totally worth it.Autocad is extremely powerful, it is a drawing tool that can work for any type of situation, we have created electrical, mechanical, civil and architectural plans with it, also room designs and layouts. It has so many features that make the use of other cad tools unnecessary if you can afford it.

I most like it cause i can draw on 2d and watch the building on 3d. also is great on collaboration with surveyor engineer plans.

Due to amount of available customizations to enhance speed, this is the best 2d software bar none.This is the most popular 2d CAD software for a reason. I was introduced to the 2002 version and I am currently using 2019. A very capable software and used as a base engine by many 3rd party software companies. I would add to avoid ProgeCAD by Projesoft like the plague.

I have used Autocad in university and sometimes in my work (I currently work in maintenance), and It is useful to create fast blueprints because you do not have to create a 3D model. Also you can use files of other softwares by only importing them, and, after you finish your work, export it with a different file format. Your layout/interface have been modified to a better one, it is nice and makes you work faster.
