Hey everyone,

I've been working a lot on some autocad tutorials and videos that I have posted to my website for free. They're mainly focused on beginners with some more advanced tutorials and helpful freelancing tips as well.

I would really appreciate any feedback from fellow cad users and beginners that could use some autocad video tutorials[/URL], I've always found it easier to learn from a video when you can actually see whats happening rather than reading a written lesson.

Anyway let me know what you think..

Cheers,

Seems like a typical site.

To be up front and honest, the only video I sat through was Pt. 8 MText and from what I saw I was not impressed. Non NCS/ANSI standard layer naming was used, the tutorial only went over basic formatting tools that automatically are available to even a first day beginner that anyone who knew MS Word could handle, not to mention a few methods and procedures you used that would initiate some seriously bad and long-lasting CAD standard technique "No-no's" that would be completely forbidden from any self respecting company.

I would be scared to see what the "advanced" tutorials offer for exchange of $$$$.

My apologies in advance if it seems harsh but these tutorials do not give any real benefit to someone who is "seriously" looking to learn AutoCAD that they couldn't already figure out in the User Guide (http://exchange.autodesk.com/autocad/enu/online-help/browse#WSa5366f3b42cc8b11117921aaaa3d5ba-0024.htm).

I noticed that you don't have CAD Everything listed in your "8 AutoCAD Sites and Resources". Shame on you for advertising your site here but not advertising our site on yours.

And in your "Autocad Alternative" section, why don't you have Bricscad, Progecad or Draftsight mentioned. All three of these programs are much better alternatives than the ones you have chosen to promote. And Draftsight is free!!!

If you're going to write an article on Autocad alternatives, why wouldn't you make a comprehensive list of all the alternatives, from most expensive to least expensive? Give your readers a wide variety of programs to look at.
