Have You Tried: Cross-Platform Collaboration Tools

Web and Mobile Cross Collaboration Tools in AutoCAD

Let’s talk about collaboration. For the Have You Tried series installment this month, we’ll cover the most efficient ways to use the collaboration tools built into AutoCAD desktop and the AutoCAD web and mobile apps. 

Clients can view your designs from a browser in the AutoCAD web app without having to install additional software.  And if you’re working in the field or are simply away from your primary computer, you can add critical information to a drawing using the AutoCAD web or mobile apps and have your co-workers see the changes in AutoCAD desktop back in the office.   

AutoCAD cross collaboration

In this Have You Tried, we’ll go over:

  • Sharing a drawing as a URL
  • How to create a trace in the AutoCAD web and mobile apps
  • How to view the trace in AutoCAD desktop

Learn how the Share and Trace features can save you time collaborating with clients and co-workers with the step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Cross-Platform Collaboration Tools topic.
