Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Which Stack Exchange site is best for AutoCAD questions like using Blender for graphical design?

I don't see a site for AutoCAD.

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

There is now an engineering stack exchange where autocad and other cad software questions are on topic: engineering.stackexchange.com – Adam Davis Jan 28 at 13:36

There are 26 questions labeled cad on Super User.

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 it's your responsibility as a user to see it through.

The latest CAD Area 51 project is here but at 22 users as of January 27 2016, it is fizzling. Please join.

There is a reddit post on /r/cad (which is apparently a pretty active subreddit and may serve as a temporary alternative to a separate SE page) asking people to join the above petition. Upvote this CAD subreddit post to further support the effort here.

gis.stackexchange.com exists, cad.stackexchange.com deserves to exist too.

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 '15 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.

AutoCAD questions in general are on-topic for Engineering.SE. This also goes for other similar programs (ProE, Solid Works, Microstation, etc.)
