Using Free and Little Known Resources to Maximize Your Investment in Autodesk Products and Subscriptions
The Autodesk Industry Report 2016 has been created for our many colleagues in the Autodesk Report Industry. We call it the Autodesk “Industry” because with over 170 Autodesk Products, the global collection of employees, end users, customers, suppliers, developers, consultants and consumers who use or benefit from products designed by Autodesk is growing rapidly.
The space defies a single vertical categorization and includes sectors such as architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, design, facilities management, innovation, R&D, modeling, BIM (building information modeling), infrastructure, media, entertainment, arts, illustration, simulation, 3D modeling, virtual reality, augmented reality, animation, renderings, gaming, etc.
This expansive group that uses one or more of the Autodesk products are defining the global future of sectors, countries, states, cities and in some cases lives.
At HingePoint, we specialize in Autodesk related platforms and have for over 20 years. It is what we do. And as experts on the Autodesk platforms, we are challenged to keep up with the furious pace of innovation and new products coming from Autodesk.
To help our internal teams, we have tools and checklists to quickly access necessary Autodesk resources required to teach, train, experiment, and engage with the Autodesk community. Topics range from automation and software integration to end-user “how to” questions on new features, releases and products.
As a member of the ADN (Autodesk Developer Network), we are keenly aware of the many resources available for those working in the industry. So we deconstructed, compiled, and packaged all of our favorite resources into a single “Autodesk Industry Report”.
Why compile the report?
Because we are engineers, architects, designers and practitioners just like you with a passion for following the engineering creed to put “service and public welfare” above all else. It’s part of our core values and why we hope it’s as valuable to you, as to us.
Note: We have certain Autodesk tools and resources that we favor. They work for us, we get a good ROI, and therefore we like them. So to keep certain recommendations objective, we commissioned independent researchers and editors to evaluate and rank resources to steer you quickly to the best options.
