The History of CAD

Have you ever wondered how the world of Computer Aided Drafting evolved? Perhaps you wonder how images and designs were dealt with before using computers? According to this website, �CAD has fundamentally changed the way design is done.� Marian Bozdoc, an Australian CAD and Computer Design consulting firm has compiled information about the history of CAD, tracing the advantages and improvements in CAD from before 1970 to the present. The resources are arranged by date in a timeline format, making it easy to compare the progress of CAD over time. Also included on this site is a computing history timeline which follows the same format as the CAD version.
