Autodesk 2015 Products are Here

By Matt Dillon

Most, if not all of the Autodesk 2015 products are now shipping and are available for download, with the Suites soon to follow.

As always, we strongly recommend that you, your CAD Manager, BIM Manager, or whoever handles this sort of thing download and install the new software on a non-production machine first to explore the new features, before rolling it out to your entire office. Don’t forget to disable your anti-virus software before installing, and when you download, do not use the “Install Now” option. Use the “Download Now” (Download Manager) option ideally, or failing that, use the “Browser Download” option.

No longer the Curly Shuffle, It’s now the Knurly Shuffle!
