Definitions of AutoCAD on the Web:

- A popular computer aided drafting program developed by AutoDesk. AutoCAD files typically have the extensions DWG and DXF.

- AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting (CAD) software package for 2D and 3D design and drafting, developed and sold by Autodesk. It currently runs exclusively on Microsoft operating systems. Versions for Unix and Apple Macintosh were released, but these met with limited market acceptance and were later dropped. It usually suffers from poor performance when run in an emulator or compatibility layer like Virtual PC or Wine. 

What is AutoCAD 2007? 

Design, visualize, and document your ideas clearly and efficiently with AutoCAD® software. From conceptual design through drafting and detailing, AutoCAD 2007 enables you to explore ideas like never before. Create, edit, and develop design alternatives using realistic solids and surfaces in an updated design environment. Communicate your ideas with powerful sketch, shadow, and rendering tools, including intuitive walk-through animations. Then turn your concepts into a set of documents with the new section and flatten functionality. It’s all here, whether you’re creating, exploring, managing, or communicating, AutoCAD keeps you on time, on budget, and on track. 

AutoCAD 2007 also has a new set of section cut tools so you can quickly convert your solid designs into 2D drawings for all your documentation work. For more details on the benefits AutoCAD 2007 refer to the AutoCAD Features web page.
