  1. I subscribe to the RSS feeds of Autodesk, AUGI, MCAD and CAD-Tutor forums.

    I don’t ‘visit’ any of them unless I see something interesting roll by… who has time to just browse!

    I learn a lot just from reading the questions that are being asked and I help out where I can.

    Does anyone know whether MCAD forums found a buyer yet?

    1. Paul, I’m sure you saw EvD media bought mCADForums. Should be a good match and I am looking forward to see what they have planned.

    I scroll through mainly the adsk forums and skim read the titles & look for posts no one has replied to or have a low reply count & remain unsolved. I don’t see this kind of approach any different to an RSS feed, except I get to see those extra statistics.

    1. I just started the same thing. I’m going to try and answer at least one unanswered question in the mornings with my first cup of coffee.

  2. I visit the Autodesk forums once a week and skim the headlines. I look for issues we’re having or anything I feel is interesting. I will also visit the Autodesk forums when I have an issue and can’t resolve it, its usually the first place I go.

    1. Based on the level of activity, it’s clear that the Autodesk forums is the first place most people go.

    I spend most of the day logged in to the Adesk forums. I try to find time to help out whenever I can and probably ask more than I answer. I also go to AUGI just to chat in the CWC forum.

    1. It’s funny that I forgot to even include AUGI in the poll options. I guess you can see how often I visit them.
