Top CAD Blogs of 2014

Welcome to my fourth annual “Top CAD Blogs” post! Just like last year, I’ve lumped all different software specific CAD blogs (AutoCAD vs. Revit vs. Inventor vs. etc.) together.

As usual, I ranked the top CAD blogs according to Alexa’s Global Traffic Rank. Alexa explains that their traffic rank is a measure of a site’s popularity. The rank is calculated using a combination of average daily visitors and page views over the past 3 months. The site with the highest combination of visitors and page views is ranked #1.

The websites that qualified for consideration were website that were:

  1. Structured primarily as a CAD blog.
  2. Active.
  3. Not highly commercial.
Top CAD Blogs of 2014

I considered seventy eight (78) blogs, and listed them in table format below. The two charts that I’ve included display the top twenty six (26) blogs.

Here’s the pie chart of the top 26.

Here’s the bar chart of the top 26.

In tabular form, the Alexa Global Traffic Ranks for the seventy eight (78) blogs are as follows:

    I enjoyed your article. I was hoping to see my CAD blog, Best CAD Tips,, on the list, but despite having a pretty good Alexa rating, it was missing. Could you please give my blog a look and see if you would include it in future lists? Thanks, and have a Happy New Year! Mark

    We have launched a new blog this year for the purpose of sharing tips, shortcuts and workflow ideas using Autodesk infrastructure applications. We would love to have our blog included in your next review.
    Thank you for your consideration!
