Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the AutoCAD 2011 Product Launch Event here in San Francisco, CA. After the webcast I got to attend several breakout sessions where many of the product managers demonstrated some of the most compelling features inside AutoCAD 2011. I’ll write more about the event later, but suffice to say the day was packed with technical insights, and even gave us a chance to voice our opinions about the software and where it’s headed. Having the chance to attend the launch event for the past two years, I can vouch for how seriously Autodesk takes feedback from users like you and I. Not only were product designers, Q&A staff, and others in attendance at the feedback session, but so was Autodesk CEO, Carl Bass. Again, more on the launch event later; how can you get a chance to learn about the new features inside AutoCAD 2011?
For my readers in or around Richmond, VA, join me, Donnie Gladfelter, author of the upcoming book AutoCAD 2011 and AutoCAD LT 2011: No Experience Required for a look at What’s New Inside AutoCAD 2011. The presentation is FREE to attend, and you’ll get free dinner while seeing many of the incredibly powerful new features like 3D Surfaces, in addition to the numerous productivity enhancements like the streamlined HATCH command, and one of my personal favorites, Selection Cycling. Interested in attending the event? Here’s what you need to know:
