What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is a drafting software with the help of which an architect, design engineers draw their design in 2D, 3D format. This is the first software that helps us to draw our design in the digital format. Before this, people use to draw their drawing in sheets, chart papers of different sizes. They use sheets of A1, A2, A3, and A4 sizes to draw their object. Our main focus area is to tell how we can insert an image in Auto CAD in this presentation.
