As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback about the latest version of AutoCAD WS and we welcome your suggestions for additions to the next release, later this year.

3D Support

We have expanded the View Modes with the latest release of AutoCAD WS to enabling toggling between 2D and 3D views of your 3D drawings. All editing functionality is currently disabled when viewing a drawing in 3D. The 3D toolbar comes with a preset selection of 10 different angles but you can also rotate your drawing through three dimensions manually.

GPS Support

The new GPS function lets you position yourself within your design leveraging the built-in GPS functionality of your smartphone or tablet to add contextually relevant comments at precise geographic locations.

Please note that the accuracy of the AutoCAD WS GPS function is dependent on the accuracy of your device. You may have to enable the GPS function in order to get accurate information.

Plot from Mobile

With this latest release we have added the ability to plot your drawings directly from the AutoCAD WS mobile app. You can plot both 2D and 3D versions of your drawing provided they are available.

You can either plot your drawing as a PDF file and email it to any address in the world or you can send your drawing directly to any web-connected HP ePrinter.
