CNCCookbook 2016 CAD Survey

It’s time for another major CNCCookbook survey–the CNCCookbook 2016 CAD Survey.  Each year, we do a number of surveys that provide valuable results to our readers.  The two biggest and most popular by far are the CAD Survey and the CAM Survey.  We do the CAD survey at the beginning of the year and the CAM survey at the end of the year–we just finished the 2015 CAM Survey.  We have results going back quite a few years, so market share trends can be seen from the surveys and are quite interesting.

With the 2015 CAM survey, we started adding a few more questions (there are a total of 6 questions) so we could provide more substantive results.  In particular, with the 2015 CAM survey we were able to produce reports on the strengths and weaknesses of the top 16 packages.  In addition, we were able to come up with customer satisfaction scores for these packages.  This is very useful to know if you’re in the process of evaluating a new package.

With this latest CAD survey, we’ll be able to do the same for CAD packages.  Please take the survey and let us know about your own experiences with CAD:

Once we get a few hundred responses, I will collate and present the results in a later blog post.  I’ll also discuss how the market shares have changed since we last surveyed CAD in 2015–the trends are always interesting and we’ve had many exciting developements in the Cloud CAD arena since that time.

Also, be sure to sign up for our email blog newsletter so you’ll see the results of the survey–you can sign up to the left or at the bottom of this article.
