Desktop CAD is a blog and resource directory for everything computer aided design related. While our main focus is on open-source software, we like to cover everything we can get our hands on. We provide tutorials, resources, information, comparisons between software, and more.

Our goal is to provide easy and fast resources to everyone who is looking to get started with CAD along with help experienced users solve problems and learn things they may not know about the programs they use. Because most manufacturing, engineering, prototyping, and architectural plans and blueprints and made with some sort of CAD program, we want to provide resources that helps people in all fields.

Our Focus

Our main focus is to provide tutorials and resources to people who are learning or already know how to use computer aided design software. We do this by writing posts for beginners and more advanced readers. We focus more towards the weekend CAD user and not as much towards the professional, although we hope we can help those readers as well.

Our focus is mostly towards weekend CAD users since that’s what we are. We like designing woodworking projects, furniture, floor layouts, and more. But it is not something that we do daily or professionally.
