Computer-Aided Design

CAD, or computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD software replaces manual drafting with an automated process. If you work in the architecture, MEP, or structural engineering fields, you've probably used 2D or 3D CAD programs.

CAD software is handy for driving 3D printers that are becoming increasingly more pervasive in K12 educational environments.  Here you will find suggestions for online CAD tools.  These are free to use and Chromebook friendly.
