Autodesk 2019 New Feature Webinar Series

Autodesk 2019 New Features Webinars by The CAD Geek

Last week, the technical team at CADD Microsystems came together to put Autodesk's 2019 products through their paces. I already shared my first impression of AutoCAD 2019 several weeks ago, but the purpose of last week was to look at the holistic portfolio of products. We tested out the new features and collaboarated with one another to discuss how the release stands to beneft the real-world projects of our clients. Beyond the enjoyment of having the team together, seeing how each of our specialists priortized the new features is incredibly beneficial as I begin recieving questions from clients and readers of The CAD Geek.

New Features Webinar Series

While last week we focused on exploring the new releases, this week our focus is on sharing what's new in Autodesk's 2019 products. Our eight-part webinar series begins tomorrow (April 17th) at 1:30 pm EST, and concludes on Thursday (April 19th) at 3:00 pm EST. In addition to the full webinar schedule found on the CADD Microsystems website, you can conect with me as I present the following presentations this week:

Wednesday, April 18th

I do hope you'll be able to join me for at least one of the webinars I'm hosting this week. Of course if schedules or time zones do not align, we'll have recordings of each webinar available shortly after each broadcast.

Thoughts About AutoCAD 2019

What People are Saying About AutoCAD 2019

Yesterday Autodesk not only announced AutoCAD 2019, but also major changes about the way AutoCAD is offered to customers. As I shared in my post A First Look at What’s New in AutoCAD 2019, I’m quite excited about this release even as it breaks the typical mold of what we think of when it comes to new releases. The announcement of One AutoCAD focuses on the overall process of design, not just the part that happens while I’m trapped behind my desk in the office. Although this shift delivers a small number of new features in the desktop application, it delivers a wealth of new features to the overall AutoCAD ecosystem.

Of course, that’s just my take on One AutoCAD announcement. Many others have also weighed in since yesterday’s announcement, and below is a cross-section of what they’ve had to say.

As you can see, there's a lot to talk about not just with the announcement of AutoCAD 2019, but also the broader One AutoCAD. Stay tuned here on The CAD Geek and with the authors outlined above as we dig into the many pieces and parts of this release over the coming weeks. Likewise, let us know your thoughts about One AutoCAD in the comments below.

AutoCAD 2010 and new Exchange Site Launched

image Great news! You know all those cool new features like parametric constraints, the contextual ribbon, dynamic block enhancements, etc that myself and every other blogger in the blogosphere have been raving about for months now?  Until today those posts were pretty much “come and see the cool features you could be saving time with (if only AutoCAD 2010 had shipped)”.  Wait no more, subscription customers your copy of AutoCAD 2010 is in the mail!

As you might expect the blogosphere is rather lively today. Google Reader was full of posts from blogging favorites like Heidi Hewett, and Shaan Hurley (Between the Lines).  Speaking of Shaan, he has to qualify for some award for most posts in a 24 hour period. Google Reader had 4 posts queued up from him alone this AM.
