Looking at the questions that are being asked I cannot believe that people are giving out thousands of Dollars to get Software that dont have a clue how to use.
Even people asking how to install cracks.
I think Grabcad have a legal duty to check if peoples software is legit. or the software companies should check!
With the amount of posts that pour into GrabCad each day you'd have to hire a full time person to go through them 24/7, we as users have to help, so I suggest if you see these posts asking how to install cracks etc. just hit the 'Report Spam' button to notify GrabCad of this illegal activity.
A small input to the discussion from us as well - if you notice people asking for help to use pirate software etc, just report those users as spammers, they will shortly be automatically blocked from any other activity as well.
And you can always send us an e-mail to investigate some users activity or misconduct. We have been very strict with blocking users from this site that abuse other users, other engineers' work or spam people.
Autodesk educational software is free during the time of education :-) But actually anyone can use it.
@ Jakob this is true but doesnt it leave a water mark indicating that its educational
Yeah it does. So no commercial use. But that doesn't matter if you're just "goofing around" and learning/testing :-)
@Scott I agree that people who have legit software be it educational or not should be helped. I think that Grabcad must & should moderate some of the Q&A being placed on the site,as it seems to be getting out of hand at the moment!
