Having just wrapped up a series of 2012 Autodesk Product Launch events, it’s hard for me to even start thinking about next year’s release. Of course, for Autodesk to meet their annual release cycle, you better believe they’ve already started thinking about AutoCAD 2013 and beyond. In fact, Autodesk is currently conducting a survey on what looks like it could lead to a very cool drawing compare feature in a future release of AutoCAD.
Here are the details from Autodesk:
Fill out a short survey about your AutoCAD drawing comparison needs - $30 lottery for participation!
The AutoCAD research team would like to learn as much as possible about the work you do when comparing drawings in order to improve future versions of AutoCAD. The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, and there will be a lottery for participants for a $30 Amazon gift card.
The link to the survey is here: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/513364/Drawing-Compare
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Eunice.Chang@Autodesk.com.
I’ve participated in several such studies over the years, including some for the new Array tools found in the current AutoCAD 2012 release, and these have always been very friendly sessions to participate in. Autodesk isn’t interested in criticizing your current workflow, but instead to better understand it so they can develop awesome new tools that will ultimately save you time. So don’t be bashful, help Autodesk help you (and the rest of the AutoCAD community)!
