Bottom of the Page

Use AutoCAD® WS to share, edit, and manage AutoCAD drawings on the Web.

AutoCAD WS is an application that interfaces directly with AutoCAD. Changes to your local AutoCAD drawings are synchronized with the online copies that you have stored on the AutoCAD WS server.

The AutoCAD WS Editor allows you to access and edit the online copies from any computer with a web browser. Multiple users can work on the same drawing file online and in real time.

Access and Share Drawings in AutoCAD WS

Log in to your AutoCAD WS account to access and manage your uploaded files from any computer with a web browser and Internet access.

Share your drawings and other files online with other users. Users can view, edit, or download a shared drawing without having to install CAD software or a DWG viewer. They can also download other shared files, such as PDFs, ZIPs, raster images, and any other files.

Collaborate in Real Time

After sharing your online drawing, collaborate with other users in real time by inviting them to simultaneously view and edit the drawing.

Use the Timeline

The timeline allows you to track the history of an online drawing. Use the timeline to view previous versions of the drawing, including versions resulting from real-time collaborations. All comments made over the progress of a drawing are displayed.

While viewing a past version of the drawing, you cannot make changes. Save a copy of the drawing to continue working on the selected version.

For additional information and tutorials on how to use AutoCAD WS, see the AutoCAD WS website.
