How can CAD tools become even better in the future? Please share your thoughts in this short CAD survey.

What challenges should future CAD tools solve? What are the problems with current tools? How should CAD tools evolve?  How should CAD tools change to meet tomorrow’s business needs? Could modern infrastructures benefit CAD tools? Should cloud technology impact CAD?

These are the types of questions we are exploring in this survey. We would like to hear your thoughts on the future of CAD. We looked at this topic a few years ago and we are reexamining it to determine how trends and viewpoints have evolved.
