Trial and Error – Free Autodesk Trials
If you like to learn by trial and error, or hands on learning, then you should take full advantage of the free Autodesk Trials program. You can download any Autodesk product for free with a 30-day trail.
We recommend you really apply yourself during the 30 days, because 30 days in not very much time to learn how to use tools as powerful as the Autodesk suite of products.
People that use this software design world-class structures like the Panama Canal and 110 story sky- scrapers. They are not toys. When you download the apps they all come with the following.
Take a look at the sample files and see what they are, their data, what the screens and menus do. Most Apps come with beginner, intermediate, and advanced sample files to help you see what is possible and how to use the tools correctly.
Extensive help on every feature and function and menu is inside every Autodesk App. Read the help! You’ll actually learn a ton.
Outside the app are many tools, blogs, and video tutorials from professionals that help you along. That is what we love about this industry. Everyone is willing to help you learn, even us at HingePoint.
Education (.edu) Domain Owners Eligible For Free Autodesk Software
At the 2014 Autodesk University conference, Autodesk announced FREE software for all of those in the education domain. This genius move by Autodesk eliminated all the difficulties that universities went through to get students the tools they need to learn the trade.
Let’s face it, who can afford Autodesk tools except successful firms that make a lot of profit? If you are teaching, or enrolled, in an educational institution take full advantage of this program!
Get more info including who is eligible and what is available from the Autodesk Academic Resource Center, Autodesk Software License Agreements and the Autodesk Education Product Offerings website. The reason these sites are so helpful is how specific they can be on certain topics. For instance, you may find a post or video explaining and troubleshooting the exact issue you’re having. This can be very helpful since user manuals have finite space to cover the most common issues only. Rather than pay for training, try one of these resources first.
