I don't see a site for AutoCAD.

For Blender, you can use this site: http://blender.stackexchange.com/

There are 26 questions labeled cad on SuperUser.

There are 142 questions labeled on Stack Overflow, and 297 labeled .

Looks like Stack Overflow has the better chance of getting you an answer. I don't know if that's 'appropriate' de jure, but de facto it would seem like your best bet.

Currently there is no SE site specific for Autocad, but you can support the CAD website proposal in Area 51.

CAD deserves its own page on stack exchange and its your responsibility as a user to see it through.

The first CAD post on Area 51 here fizzled out and got closed because of not meeting some goal for some deadline. There is a new CAD proposal here that desperately needs YOUR support. Please create an SE Area 51 account and Follow/Commit this A51 post to see it through.

gis.stackexchange.com exists, cad.stackexchange.com deserves to exist too. 3D printing is upon us and I think the audience is big enough to support a forum. Be sure to upvote my example questions! :)

Also contact this guy: jericson@stackexchange.com and ask him to merge the original post with the existing post because the new CAD proposal's account's 13 "Followers" could definitely use the old one's 63. – boulder_ruby Jan 24 at 21:03

I agree with boulder_ruby, A Stack Exchange for CAD would be a big plus. Many online sites already exist for CAD. However, the Stack Exchange mechanism seems to generally work better. I am not working with CAD of late. However, back when I was doing AutoCAD, a Stack Exchange site would have been very useful. Same holds for SketchUp.
