As we are about to approach a new year, why not take some time to help guide the direction of 3ds Max/Design? In fact why not do this for all the Autodesk design software you use.
Below is an easy away you can help shape the product, and it should take no more than a coffee break to setup.
The CIP, or Customer Involvement Program, allows you to automatically forward specific information to Autodesk about how you use 3ds Max/Design. The information you send is typically, what features you use the most, problems you may encounter and other helpful information which all goes towards guiding the future.
The immediate benefit to you is you are also able to view reports that can help you optimise your use of 3ds Max. Find out how below.
Follow these 4 simple steps to turn the CIP ON or OFF.
- Navigate to the 'Help' menu,
- Select 'Customer Involvement Program' from the drop down
- In the dialog box, choose whether you want to start or stop participating.
- Click OK and your done.
How do you stack up?:
One of the other benefits of this program is it allows you to view how your hardware configuration compares to the 'average' user of the software. A great way of justifying that new graphics card or workstation to your boss.
This data is collected from participating users daily, and you can then view this information at any time, comparing it to your own system. This information willl definately prove interesting.
To view this data, select the 'Preview my CIP data' in the bottom right corner of the above dialogue box. This will then display your results. An example is below.
