    I was using CAD in the 80's as well with a slight difference. The program I used wasn't as powerful as Autocad but then I wrote it myself and among many other things used it to draw the figures for the below article in Transactor Magazine. I had to write my own software because it ran on a video card that I designed and built in about 1985 that gave my Commodore 128 a hi res display capable of showing about 1200x 800 pixels in 16 colors. I had to hack the monitor to get it to display that as well as overclock the computer. That's part of the reason this article was about adding more cooling to your computer. I don't know if anybody else was overclocking back then but I have overclocked every computer I have ever had since 1979.
