"A 'plan' is any precise plane representation of a real object for study or for production purposes. The dimensions of each element (entity) of which the drawing consists of, must be exact no matter what scaling is used. This differentiates a CAD program from a vectorial drawing tool such as Sketch, Illustrator or Corel Draw, which is a more or less faithful representation of reality. With CAD a plan first of all has to be exact. This is in contrast to illustrations (Drawing) where the aesthetics of a picture are of more concern."
