Have You Tried: eTransmit in AutoCAD

eTransmit in AutoCAD

Have you ever sent what you thought was a complete set of drawing files to a client or subcontractor only to have them ask for missing information like plot styles, fonts, xrefs, or other drawing files? This is a pretty common issue and eTransmit in AutoCAD can help.

Electronic Transmit—or eTransmit for short—packages all the drawing and support files needed to properly display and print them for your client or subcontractor. eTransmit can create a ZIP file or folder with all the drawing and support files for your project.

By using eTransmit, you will no longer need to send a missing drawing or support file to your client or subcontractor. All the files will be included in one convenient package.
