AutoCAD users looking exchange ideas, confer with experts, even provide feedback to product developers should check out this new user portal from Autodesk. The AutoCAD Exchange community, which just launched, is being touted as an online community stocked with elearning tools, aggregated CAD information from Web resources, even input from fellow AutoCAD users around the globe.
The portal lets visitors create profiles to personalize their experience as well as encourages users to share tips, scripts, applications and stories about their projects and experiences with other AutoCAD users. Here’s the AutoCAD Exchange lineup as it stands now:
A tips section, which lays out tips and tricks from technical experts working on AutoCAD products, along with video demonstrations. This section also provides input from industry experts, including a video series from Robert Green on best practices for managing and enforcing CAD standards.
A collaborative area where users can upload their work and solicit instant feedback from their peers.
CAD resources, including eLearning curriculum and Autodesk University courses along with a Google-based search capability designed to make it easy to find information from Autodesk and others on the Web.
A daily blog feed providing the latest in CAD news along with the latest posts from bloggers like Shaan Hurley and Lynn Allen.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
