Short for "Computer Aided Design".

A CAD software package allows a designer to create technical drawings and schematics.

There are two main types of packages - 2D (two dimensional)which concentrate on 'flat' drawings having width and height, for example, a garden design program.

The other type of CAD package is 3D (three dimensional) which allow you to deal with depth as well, for example a kitchen design application.
