- AutoCAD is an industry-leading software used to draw everything, from architectural plans and civil engineering documents to electromechanical details or anything else that you need to design. Leveraging both 2D power and 3D visualization, AutoCAD has been the go-to tool for professionals of every discipline for years. For quite some time, it was only available to run on the Windows operating system, but about 10 years ago, AutoCAD for Mac was released to run natively on what is now Mac OS. The feature set has grown exponentially over that 10-year period, and now more than ever, it stands ready to support design professionals of every field. AutoCAD for Mac is a powerful and deep application with lots of options and variables. There's a philosophy in industrial design regarding design, dissolving, and behavior. Simply put, it means when we stop thinking about how we hold the pencil in our hands is when we typically write most naturally. In grade school, I'm sure you spent a little time practicing holding your pencils and working on your handwriting. I'm sure now when you write, you don't even think about how you're holding your pen or your pencil. You're completely focused on what you are writing. With a little bit of practice, AutoCAD for Mac can become almost as comfortable. So, you no longer worry about how you'll perform a task. Instead, you can focus on your design. My name is Jim LaPier, and I've been using AutoCAD for 20 years and AutoCAD for Mac since the day it was announced. Join me now in this LinkedIn learning course and take your first steps to mastery of AutoCAD for Mac.
