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 of our favorite surprising items designed with help from AutoCAD:
1. Beautiful artwork with an architectural bent? Check.

9. Finally, this tattoo may or may not have been designed in AutoCAD (we don’t know), but it was at least designed BY AutoCAD – and it’s some quality ink if we do say so ourselves.
