CADxp press release, November 19, 2006
CADxp , the french-speaking CAD portal is proud to
announce the registration of its 30000th member today. After four years
of existence, CADxp became the first CAD (Computer Aided Design)
french-speaking portal, designed specifically for CAD end-users.
Mainly oriented towards Autodesk software users at its beginning, the
site diversified and attracts now more and more users of other software
such as SolidWorks, Catia, Pro-Engineer. The most used sections of the
site are the technical support forums, CAD articles, and the download
section. The technical support forums are now the main resource for CAD
end-users. The number of visitors on the site makes it possible to very
quickly obtain a response to a particular problem, generally within an
hour or two. It is the key to success; a technical support forum is
viable only if very attended. With on average thirty new registrations
per day for more than two years, the success of CADxp is guaranteed.
The site was launched on November 1, 2002 by Patrick EMIN, CAD
specialist, AutoCAD trainer and developer during several years. An
individual initiative and without financing, CADxp has always be
attached to preserve its independence from software editors and
retailers. Operating expenses of the site are deadened partly by
advertiser?s campaigns, mainly by CAD editors.
In November 2005, the English version of CADxp was launched at
In addition to an internal search function, CADxp has search
capabilities assisted by Google. Several RSS feeds are available, in
particular the list of the last forums messages and the list of the last
articles. CADxp very early innovated by proposing meta RSS feeds,
combining several feeds. For example, you can subscribe to RSS feeds
combining all new articles of Autodesk blogs, all new messages published
on Autodesk AutoCAD forums, a functionality that Autodesk does not
propose yet. Each CADxp forum is also available as a separate RSS feed.
If you prefer to read the latest news on your Windows desktop, you can
also add to it the CADxp Google gadgets.
CADxp, it?s nearly 100 new messages per day, 8000 pages seen per day,
and 1000 visitors per day.
