Catia compares to acad/icad in a similar way to oranges and elephants...

Acad is a drafting package and they've added some boolean solid capabilities 
to it... Catia/Pro/Engineer/Unigraphics, SolidWorks are parametric, feature 
based modelling systems. This meaning that you can make changes to the 
dimensions and design intent that you've built into the models. This 
approach much easier than a boolean based modelling system.

From the model, whether it be a single component or assembly of components, 
the drawing views and dimensions are generated automatically... when changes 
are made to the parts or assemblies, the drawing automatically reflects 
these changes.

There are many more capabilities, this is only a very basic explanation of 
the capabilities...

Have a look at:
