    Tablets and smartphones are no longer futuristic concepts. These devices are ubiquitous and extremely powerful, in both in our daily lives and our professional workflows. But how can we use them in our CAD lives? The AutoCAD mobile app lets us use the copious amounts of data we include in our DWG™ files anywhere we are. Whether in the coffee shop, on the factory floor, or in the middle of a field (cell signal notwithstanding), you can get to your DWG files in the cloud, make changes to the native geometry, and share your changes with others. Other apps can help you complete your workflow, from marking up prints to sharing designs. This class will go through the basics of adding cloud access to AutoCAD mobile, drawing new geometry, and modifying existing work, as well as pulling information such as dimensions and areas from your drawings. We will also cover best practices and access for non-AutoCAD users, as well as some additional apps that can be useful in the field.
