Overview of AutoCAD, Inventor, and Autodesk Suite at Texas Tech University



AutoCAD is modeling software that allows the user to create 2D/3D CAD designs. With the multiple features like the multi-function grips, blend tools, and object and layer transparency any user will be able to quickly and efficiently render 2D/3D models.

System requirements

Check the system requirements for AutoCAD to see if your operating system and computer can handle the program. Because system requirements change with each software update, refer to the proper version for your software version for the latest information on supported operating systems and browsers.
