Are you an engineering-based company still using AutoCAD® for your design plans? Are you tired of revising several objects instead of just one and letting the software dynamically update the rest? Are you tired of mistakes in labels from one drawing to the next? Are you worried about training?
In the coming months, I will release regular blog posts related to Upchain. Each post will cover a different topic and educate you on the functionality of Upchain. You may be asking yourself, what is Upchain? Upchain is a fully featured cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) and product data management (PDM) solution. It has everything you need in a PLM and PDM solution. There are tools for real-time collaboration, cad integration, change management, project management, markup tools, and much more. Upchain has plugins or "CAD Connectors" for many popular CAD packages like AutoCAD®, AutoCAD® Mechanical, Autodesk® Inventor®, SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, and more. (Go to this link for a complete list.) For more information on Upchain, check out my colleague's YouTube video here.
Have you signed into your Autodesk® account recently? The page people go to the most has been updated…again. Updates are good; however, when you're looking for something specific that is not where it was last time you checked, you might get disoriented. We don't want you to feel that way. This article will highlight a few changes you may have already encountered and steer you where you need to go while providing some helpful tips along the way.
