Design Integration Laboratory

2D Drawing and Drafting

Over the last few years we have used a number of Macintosh 2D drawing drafting applications. As a class, these provide both easy click-and-drag drawing for early design-stage drawing work, and efficient accurate technical drafting for project documentation.

In academic year '92-93, our drawing program of choice was Claris CAD. In academic year '93-94 we used Blueprint, the 2D version of MiniCAD from Graphsoft. Since the fall of 1995, our primary drawing/drafting tool has been PowerCADD, from Engineered Software.
