About CAD File Format

CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. The term CADD (for Computer Aided Design and Drafting) is also used. It is used for a 3D graphics file format and may contain 2D or 3D designs. CAD file is a digital file format of an object generated and used by CAD software. A CAD file contains a technical drawing, blueprint, schematic, or 3D rendering of an object. There may be other CAD tools that can be used to create, open, edit and export these .cad files to more widely used CAD drawing file formats.
