New information is added regularly. We welcome news and information you provide to us relating to any CAD software for Mac computers.
General purpose CAD is available for 2D drafting, 3D modeling or both. Specialist industries such as architecture, interior design, landscape design, furniture design, machinery design, product design, jewelry design and others have specialized CAD software suited to their individual design needs. Be sure to ask us for the product that best suits your design requirements.
We focus on Intel based Apple hardware and later operating systems such as OS-X Lion, Snow Leopard, Maverick, El Capitan, Sierra but you will find reference to older machines and software. We focus on professional CAD software rather than free CAD software for Mac, as these tend to either be evaluation products or not of high enough standard to be included in our round-ups and evaluations.
We add new reviews and post new information and answers to your questions regularly.
If you’re an Apple software vendor and would like to contribute information, opinions or materials relating to the topic, contact our editors.
