Homepage Poll: Upgrades

It’s that time again, new Autodesk software announcements! With the 2014 family of products on the market, folks are considering whether or not (or when) to upgrade.

The March homepage poll asked AUGI members what they consider to be most important when upgrading to a new release of software. Many thanks to Bob Bell for suggesting this topic.

New features is the clear leader here, but, I don’t think anyone is surprised to see stability and feature refinements coming in next.

Some folks do put off upgrades, or eschew them altogether, because their work depends upon a 3rd party software package that isn’t compatible with Autodesk’s most current release.

Wondering if you might have missed a useful new feature in recent years? Search to see if your favorite product has a release comparison matrix available:

Polls and Surveys
Be sure to chime in on the current homepage poll, and update us on whether or not you’re currently searching for a job. I’ll be comparing this year’s responses with the ones I received last year in the May 2013 issue of HotNews.

We’re running a survey on Local User Groups, so, please take a minute during April to swing by the current surveys page: and chime in.
