The AutoCAD WS team is excited. Very excited. So excited, in fact, that we can hardly contain ourselves!
A little over two years ago, we started on a mission: to make it easier for you to access and share AutoCAD files—wherever you are. And we’ve been blown away by the overwhelming response and positive feedback our AutoCAD WS web and mobile apps have received.
While we’re happy with what we’ve been able to accomplish, there’s so much more we want to do. Since our last release, we’ve been hard at work in our software labs. And coming very soon we’ll have some cool new things to share with you, which we think you’re going to love.
So what’s with the name change?
Some of you may know Autodesk has been building a family of web and mobile apps designed to work together, which we call our “360” family. Given our exciting upcoming news, we feel it’s a good time to formally bring AutoCAD WS into that 360 family. And that’s how “AutoCAD 360” was born!
OK, so enough about us. We’ve been talking a lot about cool changes coming soon. We won’t divulge the details just yet, but if you want to be among the first to know what’s new, simply sign up below for up-to-date information!
And remember: Your input has—and will always be—crucial to what we create. And soon you’ll see just how your input has helped shape the evolution of the platform. It’ll just be a lil’ longer, so stay tuned!
—The AutoCAD W… er, AutoCAD 360 Team (We’re still getting used to our new name, too!)
For the people who are shaping the physical the world around us, AutoCAD Design Suite delivers the power of AutoCAD software, plus tools to create, capture, connect, and showcase your designs and streamline your workflow.

As of this week, AutoCAD WS now supports Plant 3D in all of AutoCAD WS platforms (web, mobile, and Mac).
Do your drawings contain Plant 3D entities? Now you can view them with AutoCAD WS when you upload your drawings!
With AutoCAD WS, you can use your mobile device to take your designs with you to the site, take notes, collaborate with designers in the office, make changes, and sync it all back. Save your drawings to Autodesk 360 and with AutoCAD WS, all your designs are safely stored and synced between your tablet, phone, and desktop computer so you can access them anywhere.
We would like to thank you, all of our passionate users, for helping us get to this amazing achievement. We invite you to share with us your thoughts and tell us what you would like to see in the next versions of AutoCAD WS!
Apple® is releasing its 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad® with Retina® display today, February 5, 2013.
If you are using Autodesk’s AutoCAD programs that employ a lot of large files, you may find that the current 64GB iPad model doesn’t provide enough storage. This new generation of the iPad® will be perfect for enterprise and educational institutions, as well as some creative professionals. More importantly, AutoCAD WS users can now store more files on their mobile device to take their designs with them to the site, take notes, collaborate with designers in the office, make changes, and sync it all back.
“Our AutoCAD WS app for iOS was designed to give customers seamless access to their designs anywhere, anytime,” said Amy Bunszel, vice president of AutoCAD products for Autodesk. “These files are often large and highly detailed so having the thin and light iPad with its Multitouch display, integrated camera and all-day battery life, is a real advantage for iPad users to view, edit and share their AutoCAD data.”
The new 128GB versions of the fourth generation iPad will be available starting today, Tuesday, February 5, in black or white, for a suggested retail price of $799 (U.S.) for the iPad with Wi-Fi model and $929 (U.S.) for the iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
