It is that time of year for students to head back to the classroom and dorms. I just wanted to mention you can get many Autodesk design applications for free as a student from http://students.autodesk.com. From Autodesk Impression, 3D Viz, Revit, to Civil 3D in addition to some curriculum and a community.
Unfortunately the there are a couple products missing and I receive emails about, AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT the top of the design software food chain as general purpose design products. I am working to see if we can do something about this.
