Autodesk has a program to help developers working with Autodesk technology called the Autodesk Developer Network (ADN). Members of ADN receive access to software, individual support with their problems, and access to exclusive events each year discussing the new features in the upcoming releases. You can read more about ADN here. In addition to those benefits, members of ADN have access to a large pool of answers to previous common questions.
Good news for everyone else is that they’ve decided to make these answers open to everyone and have begun transferring them over into a blog format. Answers to new questions will also be posted into the blog. You can access this blog at: http://adndevblog.typepad.com/manufacturing/. You can quickly access the initial welcome page here.
