Description

Description

Last year we discussed the feature changes and improvements to the tools and ancillary programs that Autodesk has included for years, but which have remained basically the same. This year we'll investigate the group's findings and add our own suggestions. The tools and features we'll discuss will include the Reference Manager, the Sheet Set Manager, the Standards Manager, eTransmit, and Fields. Additionally, we'll expand our topics to include anything that can make the CAD manager's job more efficient, whether it currently exists or not. Attendees will be expected to participate actively, as a member of the AutoCAD Product Team will be in attendance-so this is an opportunity to get the CAD manager's voice heard.
