BOOM. Today it happens. What is ‘it’ praytell? Today is the day we as EVD Media slap the back fat of the internet, look it square in the eyes and grow just a wee bit larger. Today we announce that is now part of the CAD slammin’, design havin’ EVD Media communi-tay. That’s right folks, we’re adding forums to the mix, a place of discussion, enlightenment, encouragement and the occasionally mis-use of smileys. mCADForums is all that and more with a long history in this wonderful CAD industry. And from here on out, it’s only going to get better.

Here’s a little history for you. The site itself was started by Sean Dotson in 2004. That’s right! 10 years ago it began as a site to connect with other CAD users. The first of it’s kind to discuss everything from software and hardware to engineering and design solutions. Today, it continues to be a resource for people to find solutions and connect with others. Here on SolidSmack, on engineerVsDesigner and over at cadjunkie, we like our CAD stuff. Nay, WE LOVE IT. We were talking to Sean, and he told us what a kickin’ thing they had going over there. We looked into it, and we totally agree: mCADForums is where it’s at. Sean’s busy with other things these days, and asked if we wanted to take over for him.

We thought long and hard about it, and you know what? We’re in.

We’re strapping ourselves down for several evening with the EVD Media crew and developers, 20 bottles of highly potent sugar water and a large bin of corn chips to make a few updates and talk with the members who frequent the site. If you’re not already, you can register on MCADForums to be a part of making the site rock the CAD forum scene like none other. If you have comments, suggestions or recipes for awesome about mCADForums or ideas about what you would like to see, leave a comment below, contact us directly by carrier pigeon or leave a comment/start a flamewar on the mCADForums wish list.

With mCADForums now becoming part of EVD Media community, we want you to be a part of it too! You have a lot to say, and a lot of opinions about your CAD software, so first and foremost we’re focused on growing the site to make it a rockin’ place for high quality information and interaction with others in the CAD industry. Sean will continue to be around and we’ve already added some new boards (fab & 3d printing, rendering & visualization) to expand the discussion of the product development process. We’re looking forward to adding mCADForums to the mix and are looking forward to hearing from you on the boards!
