Posted by hagermancompany on Jun 5, 2017 1:12:00 PM
We know AutoCAD is used to design just about everything. From moving chandeliers and art museums to cell phone towers and complex plumbing systems, we know it’s versatile, but even we’re surprised sometimes by just how versatile it is. Here are some (more) of our favorite surprising items designed with help from AutoCAD.

Psst: Don’t forget to check out Part I.

If (like Radiohead) you’re not feeling those fake plastic trees, get out of town by joining the jet set with this F-22 raptor “that can fit inside an Altoids can.”
