Advanced 3D CAD software allows users to create complex 3D forms

The table below provides an overview of computer-aided design (CAD) software. It does not judge power, ease of use, or other user-experience aspects. The table does not include software that is still in development (beta software). For all-purpose 3D programs, see Comparison of 3D computer graphics software. CAD refers to a specific type of drawing and modeling software application that is designed for creating technical drawings for distribution electronically and on paper.
