Your March CADness Champion: LINE

Congratulations are in order for LINE, your 2017 March CADness champion. Let’s take a look at the unexpectedly easy road to the championship for this newly crowned king of the commands.

How We Got Here

Let’s face it, LINE turned out to have some pretty ineffective competition. We had originally called out this first round duel as one to look out for, saying “This rivalry goes back to the days of Euclid, but LINE’s been on fire since the introduction of angles. On the other hand, we think CIRCLE has a fighting chance, thanks to the beautiful OMNIA Nightclub circular chandelier designed by Tait Towers.” LINE ended up slaughtering CIRCLE by 60 percentage points!

In fact, it was never even close after that. Take a look at the subsequent rounds:

In the championship match, when LINE went up against COPY, we here on the AutoCAD team remarked, “It’s gotta be LINE, right? Without something on there, using COPY might as well be like multiplying by zero.” Sure enough, we were proven right:
