Several new features to be added to the next release of AutoCAD WS, a free web and mobile application that enables users to view, edit and share AutoCAD projects across desktop, web and mobile devices. AutoCAD WS users will have access to 3D interactive features, including the ability to work with 3D drawings on mobile devices. In addition, AutoCAD WS will include GPS capabilities, allowing geographic location information to be shared and saved with design projects, as well as new Plot-to-Print capabilities for immediate remote printing to any HP ePrinter, including Designjets.
3D Interactive Features
An interactive 3D mode will enable users to view and share 3D drawings with AutoCAD WS using mobile devices.
Utilizing the GPS capabilities of most mobile devices, users will be able to improve orientation in their drawings, including the ability to share and save comments to geographic locations within the drawing ― all while in the field.
Plot to Print with HP ePrint & Share
By registering for HP ePrint & Share, a free HP online service, AutoCAD WS users can easily access and print their designs on any web-connected HP Designjet printer directly from AutoCAD WS with full control over plot styles, paper sizes, layouts and more.
"Design professionals are constantly moving between the office, the job site and offices of partners and clients," said Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing, HP. "The new cloud printing functionality of AutoCAD WS made possible through HP ePrint & Share will give users a full solution for documenting and sharing their designs in hardcopy wherever they may be, which is critical to their business."
