There is an extension called "Mechanical Desktop" that allows for 3D 
models. But the core application "autocad" is restricted to 2D. The 
exension really felt like an after thought. It did not compare 
favorably with CATIA, solid works and the like. So Autodesk pulled the 
plug on autocad and built a 3D modeler from scratch: autodesk inventor

This was in 1999.
autocad is still a viable 2D application. But when it comes to 3D it 
has been superseeded in every way by the inventor.
