-Unlike CAD, TAD uses a different paradigm to go about modeling. In TAD, you are not forced to think of a shape first and then go about creating that shape. Instead, TAD will give you a starting shape such as a rectangle, square, or a triangle. You then quickly move into other aspects of the design holistically.+Unlike CAD, TAD uses a different paradigm to go about modeling.

 On the other hand, drafting software is often interrupting your design thinking. Once you think of a shape; ​ you would then need to break up that shape in your mind. Then think of the graphic commands for that shape. Should I use a poly line here?  What if I use a rectangle command? and so on. On the other hand, drafting software is often interrupting your design thinking.
