Autodesk's AutoCAD for Mac, iOS breaks loose

Autodesk today announced the Mac release of their professional engineering and design software, AutoCAD. The initial betas of the Mac version hit in late May and up until then the software was a Windows-exclusive. On top of a Mac version, Autodesk is doing the whole 360 by releasing an iOS version to go along with it. The Universal (iPad, iPod touch, iPhone) app allows you to edit and share your funky pro-design work on the go.

Phil Schillz (Schiller, Apple marketing guru) even got in on the action saying “Apple is thrilled that Autodesk is bringing AutoCAD back to the Mac and we think it’s the perfect combination for millions of design and engineering professionals.”

The Mac version takes full advantage of Apple’s Mac OS technologies such as multi-touch (on laptop and magical trackpads) as well that neat cover-flow interface. AutoCAD for Mac and iOS will be released between August (that’s like today?) and October and free versions for them’ students will be made available then. Pre-ordering is a go on Wednesday (iDay!)
