AutoCAD is a commercial software application for 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting — available since 1982 as a desktop application and since 2010 as a mobile web- and cloud-based app marketed as AutoCAD 360.Developed and marketed by Autodesk, Inc.,
AutoCAD was first released in December 1982, running on microcomputers with internal graphics controllers. Prior to the introduction of AutoCAD, most commercial CAD programs ran on mainframe computers or minicomputers, with each CAD operator (user) working at a separate graphics.
AutoCAD is used across a wide range of industries, by architects, project managers, engineers, designers, and other professionals.
As Autodesk's flagship product, by March 1986 AutoCAD had become the most ubiquitous CAD program worldwide. As of 2014, AutoCAD is in its twenty-ninth generation, and collectively with all its variants, continues to be the most widely used CAD program throughout most of the world

The AutoCAD 3D Foundation Workshop provides beginners with a strong grasp of the 3D modeling skills required to successfully participate in our intensive Project Based Course.
This workshop will allow users to gain an understanding of AutoCAD 3D modeling fundamental techniques modeling a room, 3D details, using drafting views and working with text and tags will be covered. Students also learn the proper workflow for completing an entire project and creating construction documents.
The 3D AutoCAD 3D Foundation Workshop can also serve as a standalone course for architects who are interested in getting an overview of the latest version of AutoCAD.
