Last week on this Between the lines blog fun competition was announced to share Autodesk product tips and tricks in the spirit of Halloween. Autodesk Product Trick or Treats 2013 Request for Submissions
A couple great submissions have already been received. Both submitted were tricks and we need some treats to share and more products covered. Send in your trick or treats for Autodesk products lie AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, Fusion 360, Civil 3D, InfraWorks, 3ds Max, and many more. We have thousands of daily readers of this blog and many are Autodesk product ninjas with great tricks and treats to share.
Guidelines are simple to follow as this is just for fun and not a contest or official competition.
Show how to prank someone like setting their mouse wheel zoomspeed to warp factor increments. More examples were in a past blog post AutoCAD Pranks. But please make sure the tricks are non-destructive and in the spirit of fun. NO setting their UNDO command to UNDO 3 times and save the file thus making them lose work. How about code to make their computer beep when they do something like use UNDO.
Show how to do something in an Autodesk product saving time or how to do something most may not know. Or show about a eye candy treat showing something really amazing you created using an Autodesk product.
Make sure you try to keep the Trick or Treat short and simple but yet detailed enough that people will understand it. Screen captures, sample files, scripts and LISP are welcome.
Deadline: October 29th,2013
I will be the judge, jury, and executioner and all decisions made in pure fun and final.
Spread the word so we gets lots of tricks and treats to share in a series of blog posts on October 31st!
