The comparative analysis of formation of canonical surfaces in a graphics editor AutoCAD and traditional classical course in descriptive geometry is offered in the present article. The terminology used in computer graphics and descriptive geometry is different. The source data (determinant) and the law of formation of the same surfaces are also significantly different. Some of the surfaces in the general case cannot be formed in AutoCAD. In modern courses of descriptive geometry and computer graphics it is necessary to carry out connection between methods of formation of surfaces in computer and traditional variant for better understanding of properties and structures of surfaces.
