    Shared Views

    Share a view of your AutoCAD drawing online with others. Those users are not required to have AutoCAD installed since the AutoCAD file is viewed online in their web browser.  The DWG is not uploaded to the cloud, only the shared view.  Invited participants can view, print, measure, and mark up the view.


    Autodesk has two apps for viewing and editing online; The Web app and the Mobile app.
