AutoCAD WS Launches Google Drive Integration
8:20 pm  .   April 24, 2012  .   admin

AutoCAD WS has always been about leveraging the huge potential of cloud computing to provide CAD users with access to their drawings wherever they are and whenever is most convenient.

With this is mind we are proud to be one of the apps included in the official launch of Google Drive. Just like AutoCAD WS, Google Drive goes beyond mere file storage giving you access to your files on the web, in your home, at the office, and on the go.

As soon as you’ve finished reading this blog post make sure you’ve signed up for Google Drive. With 5GB of free storage, you will be able to access all your files, including DWGs and DXFs, at drive.google.com.

Then head over to the Chrome Web Store and install the AutoCAD WS app which you will find here.

Google Drive also has a mobile app available for iOS and Android so your files will always be synced however you choose to access them.

You can learn more about using AutoCAD WS with Google Drive by visiting our tutorial here.

    I have loaded Autocad 360 onto my Samsung tablet. When I try to connect, Google Drive is not listed(this I find strange?) so I go to Other and have tried several configurations but cant seem to get it right?! Can you help?

    How to use AUTOCAD 360 to access files on google drive?

  • http://www.carlile-architects.com Jacob Carlile

    Thank you for showcasing this integration. I found this site because of a problem we are having in an office setting using Google Drive with Autocad. Since Autocad no longer locks files that are being edited natively with a .dwl file, and since Google Drive doesn’t have a mechanism to lock files, this is a huge problem in an office setting.

    There is currently no way of knowing if another person has a shared file open, causing overwrites and conflicting files.

    Is this something that either Autodesk or Google is working on resolving? For a true enterprise solution, this is a game stopper. We need the ability to lock files and for read only.
