Description

Description

The computer-aided design (CAD) software for creating, modifying, analysing or optimising a design.

Scope note

CAD software should be differentiated from computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) software. CADD systems are CAD systems with additional drafting features. For example, CADD systems enable an engineer or architect to insert size annotations and other notes into a design.
