I have used AutoCAD since R12 R2012 is good for 2d sketches but it really hasnt progressed from a drawing board with the ability to to boolean type operations. Mesh commands are a joke. My company left ($$$#0#$$$) at R14 to Pro/E. Good move enabled us to actually send stuff to the toolmakers and improved the accuracy of drawings. But anyone that stuffs around with viewports dimscales and tessellation lines will understand how counter productive it really is. However for work I use Catia or Creo. ( yes on a mac too)

Pros
  • Good for 2D
Cons
  • 3D definite weaknesses including inability to export to Step, iges, parasolid files, No Finite analysis features.
