Are you looking to simplify the migration of your Civil 3D or AutoCAD project data from your local storage to the cloud? Look no further than Autodesk® DWG Migration for Docs! This free application, available on the Autodesk app store, streamlines the migration process, enabling you to initiate work-sharing with others more quickly and efficiently.

How does this application work?

Autodesk® DWG Migration for Docs scans all files within your dataset and filters them, ensuring only the necessary files migrate to Autodesk Docs. Once the application identifies the desired dataset, it searches for data integrity issues that could affect collaborative workflows’ efficiency in the future.

In performing checks, this application automatically highlights files that would result in long paths in the destination path, files not supported by Autodesk Docs, and files containing circular references that could slow down the syncing process.

What can you do with the DWG Migration for Docs tool?

The DWG Migration for Docs app provides enhanced functionality to resolve issues requiring user action, such as repairing broken reference paths and incorporating files used as references but not initially part of the data set. This enhanced functionality enables users to resolve those references and add the corresponding files inside the migration set, ensuring that all users accessing them from Autodesk Docs can work with a complete and healthy dataset.
