Autodesk AutoCAD is the industry standard computer-aided drafting (CAD) software application that enables drafters and engineers to create simple two-dimensional (2D) and complex three-dimensional (3D) models of surfaces. Prior to computer-aided drafting, manual hand drafting tools such as drafting boards and pencils, inking pens, parallel rules, compasses, and triangles only offered a subset of what can now be done with programs such as AutoCAD. Since its original release in 1982, AutoCAD quickly became the most widely used CAD program in the world because of its robust set of automated drafting tools and features. AutoCAD allows you to visually design and explore your conceptual ideas, modify your designs, and easily generate the documentation required for manufacture.
MicroStation is one of the world’s leading 2D and 3D CAD and information modelling software packages. It is used widely in architecture, engineering, construction, and the operation of utility systems, roads and rail, bridges, buildings, communications networks, water and wastewater networks, process plants, mining, and more.
MicroStation provides the power and flexibility to model, document, draft, and map projects of virtually any type and size. It also supports a portfolio of interoperable professional-grade, discipline-specific applications from Bentley and other software vendors.
AutoCAD Raster Design is the leading raster application for design professionals in the engineering industry who need to use or re-use scanned paper drawings, or any other documents or similar digital data, in the course of their design projects. Raster Design is the Autodesk solution for managing, converting, analysing and editing all types of raster images in AutoCAD software and applications on AutoCAD.
