The Revit API forum is ideal for Autodesk developers. Similar to its Structure category it is addressed everyday, and while it has been around since 2006, has nearly 150 fewer forum posts than the other Revit Autodesk forums. Of course, if you find the information you need… it really doesn’t matter. The forum is easy to navigate and it’s easy to post. Plus, like the other forums, you can search for previously asked questions and accepted solutions. It’s to see which answers have been confirmed as effective solutions to the problem you have.

This is the main AutoCAD community forum for 2013 through 2016. If you are running an older version of CAD, there are older forums available. As the main forum enveloping all practices and procedures, this is an excellent location to start before possibly streamlining your search in order to obtain a more specific result. There are over 500 AutoCAD forum threads, so there are plenty of topics. In fact, there are almost too many topics. Chances are you will find the answer you seek, it will just take more time. You might learn valuable insights through the additional clutter, but on occasion, it may lead you astray.

This falls under the same category as the basic AutoCAD community forum. The Civil 3D General Discussion section is fantastic and has some truly excellent insights, but with over 1,500 different threads, you can become “lost” easily. So, you need to make sure to use very specific keyword terminology in the search field, searching through 1,500 different fields will take far too long. Again though, it is an ultimate source of knowledge, as long as you don’t mind taking a few wrong turns along the way.

It isn’t as long-standing as many of the other Autodesk community forums, as it only dates back to 2009. That being said, AutoCAD Plant 3D is six full years old and it has the added benefit of not being cluttered with thousands of threads. In this case, the size of the forum is a benefit, which makes tracking down the information you need far easier.
