AutoCAD 2012 is Here with WS Inside
1:39 pm  .   March 24, 2011  .   admin

AutoCAD 2012 has arrived with AutoCAD WS fully integrated into Autodesk’s flagship product.

Click here to download AutoCAD 2012 (trial version) including the new Online tab which connects AutoCAD to your AutoCAD WS web and mobile account.

Now you can upload drawings to your mobile phone or tablet, download files that were edited online, and share drawings with clients and colleagues directly from AutoCAD:

See for yourself what the new tab looks like in AutoCAD 2012 with our new video:


For a comprehensive tutorial about the Online tab in AutoCAD 2012 click here.

If you are using a version AutoCAD 2010, or AutoCAD 2011, you can still get the appropriate downloadable plugin from here: www.autocadws.com/downloads.

  • Ashvin

    I have Windows Mobile 6. How can I use AutoCAD WS?

    • Daniel

      Currently we are focusing on the iOS version of the app and an Android release. Is there anyone else out there waiting for AutoCAD WS for Windows Mobile?

      • Hank

        Yes there are alot of people waiting for AutoCAD WS for the windows mobile operating system.
        All surveying data collectors run windows mobile and this is a natural application to be used by surveyors around the world. Ever since PocketCad was discontinued after it’s company was bought out and refocused, there has not been a workable solution for cad in the field on a surveying data collector. Please tell me you are working on it.

        • Daniel

          Hank, for now we are focused on iOS and Android as the market leaders in touch screen phone and tablet operating systems. We will continue to evaluate additional operating systems as we see demand grow from those users. Thanks.

        • Lee

          As Hank said, we can only use Windows Mobile on our data collectors in surveying. It would probably be wise to put more fucus now on Windows Mobile being that you already have the iCrap and Android apps available. You will get a ton of business from the surveying world if you do. Just a sugestion from a very loyal and long time customer of Autodesk products!

      • Morteza Yazdani

        I’ve HTC hd mini, it has windows mobile 6.5…
        When you provide the appropriate version for this phone?


        • Daniel

          We have no plans right now to develop for any operating systems other than iOS and Android.

    WoW autocad on galaxy tab??
    when will be available for all android device???

  • Mike Ashton

    Works great for simple drawings. Add Xrefs and layers that are turned off and it fails.
    Tried uploading from Arch 2011, and E-transmit the dawing came into WS with all layers
    turned on. Even with them turned off, locked and frozen. This doesn’t make it for a
    collaboration if the drawing isn’t the same in both places. Plus the layers do not respond in
    WS if you try to make them the same as the original. Back to PDFs and email!

  • Amir

    Daniel, whats the difference between the main Autocad and the WS ?

    • Daniel

      AutoCAD is a complex piece of software that is installed on your computer. AutoCAD WS is a complementary version of the main product that operates in your browser without you having to install anything (except Flash). Also AutoCAD WS is currently free both in the browser version and the downloadable app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

  • Tiago Conceição

    This software, AutoCad WS, it´s fabulous. I Work with huge HAVAC systems, and now i can walk trough the instalation with my iPhone 4 in my hand and consult the project drawings, make small changes and take notes. Thanks.

    • Daniel

      Our pleasure!

  • Gene Marz

    I am using MEP 2012,a nd I do not see the Online menu. I searched the CUI, and never saw it anywhere.

  • Daniel Swords

    I’m also in MEP 2012 and don’t see the WS tools anywhere.

    I also second the opinion that this is not going to work well with large files, large numbers of layers, or XREFs. We work on large projects with a lot of drawings and XREFs and having to upload full DWGs and deal with XREF issues, upload speeds, online security, etc is not the best way to do this. What we really need is the ability to use this software to markup DWFs, as well as a simple file open dialog in the mobile software so that we can open local files. Emailing and uploading everything is very slow from what I’ve seen, and there is no reason not to be able to open a local file that has been transferred over to the mobile device. When I go into the field to do sitework and construction admin, I just need to be able to take a DWF (locally stored) so that I can view it and mark it up without worrying about network connectivity and complex file management.

    I’ve made some changes in the file and then downloaded it to my system; but the downloaded version shows the old file with no change.
