I think it's too narrow to say "It's a drafting tool". Autocad is more accurately "a precision drawing tool".
I release my work (mechanisms and machine tools) as 3D models in Solidworks but before I model them, I work out most relationships and concepts in Autocad. For me, it's a sketch pad and as such, is not obsolete. I know of several other engineers that do the same.
I've found that going straight into 3D before a sketch phase, over commits you along a path that may or may not work out. On the other hand, once the design is mature, a 3D parametric model is far more efficient to work with.
