Our goal is to allow you to upload your drawings to your AutoCAD WS account from anywhere you store them. That’s the way to make AutoCAD WS a truly mobile experience.
The latest update to AutoCAD WS (now available on the App Store) introduced Upload from Email for the first time. Now you can open DWG files that you receive as email attachments simply by tapping on the attachment.
The integration with the iOS email system also enables other cloud storage applications, such as Dropbox and Box.net, to work seamlessly with AutoCAD WS.
If you usually store your drawings using Dropbox, you can open them directly onto your iPad. Tap the DWG file in Dropbox. When it is ready, you just tap the “Open In…” icon in the top right of your screen and select AutoCAD WS. Your drawing will now open in AutoCAD WS. At the same time it will be added to your AutoCAD WS online account so you will be able to access it again at any time, even when you are offline. You will also be able to access and edit the drawing from any web browser using AutoCAD WS.
If you’re using the Box.net app on your iPad, it functions in almost exactly the same way – just tap the “Open In…” icon in the top right of your screen to view the drawing in AutoCAD WS.
Dropbox for iPhone is also supported by AutoCAD WS. Simply tap the “Open In…” icon that appears at the bottom right of the screen.
