From all I've seen, relatively speaking AutoCAD for 3D blows goats.

I started life with version 2006 when they added the "DYN" dynamic input...

I've been using CAD since version 9

Version 14 was king of all kings, only weakness was binding external references (patch from Autodesk fixed it)

Since then 2000, Arch. Desktop, 2002, 2004 (I use at home), 2006 ( I use at work) and 2007 (which I have yet refuse to install)

Its my bread and butter software and pretty much the standard in the architectural community. Its easy to learn the basics, but it'* very powerful overall with a wide possibility of customization features.

Rob, what are you using it for?

i have Autocad 08, and rarely use it cause most of my stuff is 3D.

85% of my work is SolidWorks 2007 (even though my school doesnt teach it)
10% is Solid Edge (for SolidEdge class or anything that needs welding symbols)
5% is various other programs i know like Autocad and Inventor

Autodesk makes Autocad... I didnt think they had a software named that unless you're referring to Autodesk Inventor? Or maybe I just havent seen it?

Have Mastercam and Solid Works at work. Use old Cadkey at home. Like to upgrade at home but that stuff is expensive.
