  • AutoCAD is little outdated (2D design and drawings) but still you can get the job or run own architect or construction firm through this one. There are many still using this platform.

    The latest one is, 3D modeling software, (namely, Revit and Fusion) those helps for today's custom design and the latest configuration. And many high-end companies are using these platforms in foreign countries.

    There would be pros an cons in every Software package and they are based on time being requirement, operation and demand. The next version or the the latest Software may come from the different brand.

  • Auto Cad is a kind of software having its wide application for the drawing relating 2D and 3D designs where we can get better designs with the employment of Auto Cad. It could even eliminate limitations in relation to the drawing being done manually and it also ensures to keep such design files safe and the same can be used in the hours of need because of its storage characteristics. Some job profiles for Auto Cad include -
    1) Mechanical Engineer- Auto Cad experts with their basic degree in Mechanical Engineering can work independently irrespective of their designation in their jobs. They can get noticeable improvement in the areas of air conditioning system , gas turbines, generators and other type of machines.
