|AutoCAD WS on iPhone-iTouch|
AutoCAD WS, formerly known as Project Butterfly) is now out and it is free. It is available in two forms; Web Browser Based (in Adobe Flash) and for iOS devices (iPhone, iTouch and iPad). There are many things that you can do with AutoCAD WS, but there are also many things that you can not do with it. AutoCAD WS is not meant to replace AutoCAD, if it were it wouldn’t be free! It is meant to be mobile and a means to collaborate with others. The browser based AutoCAD WS is different from the iOS based version. You can do more with the browsers version, but it’s not mobile unless you are running it on a laptop or netbook.
|AutoCAD WS in a browser|
AutoCAD WS allows users to upload (only from the browser version or the AutoCAD Plug In) DWG files so that they can be viewed and marked up in AutoCAD WS. If you haven’t tried it out I suggest you do. Multiple users can access and edit a DWG file simultaneously. Notes can be taken and viewed by all parties involved. This feature will allow users to better understand drawing discussions, provide the same notes, the same markups, and allow further collaboration. AutoCAD WS is not meant to be a full out CAD program. It is a simple 2D mark up and collaboration tool.
