Why did I start writing about Cad? Because Cad is everywhere. Cad is being used in every industry you can imagine today. There are obvious uses for Cad in the architectural and engineering industries, but Cad has found a home in some unexpected places. In a court of law Cad is used to demonstrate crime scenes for jurors. Fashion designers use it to layout textile patterns and cable providers use it to map out service their areas. Cad has become one of the most versatile technologies to lend itself to industry. It is a super technology, but it is still just a tool, like a typewriter is to a writer.
While Cad is everywhere, it can be hard to see because it is considered a support technology. Simply put you need a primary skill to make good use of Cad, architect, engineer, designer, draftsman etc. The value of Cad depends on the purpose of its user. Currently it has greater importance to architects and engineers than to fashion designers, but new uses for Cad are being discovered every day. So how do you get started using Cad?
