Happy New Year! Now, What’s Coming In 2013?
5:55 pm  .   December 31, 2012  .   admin

2012 has been a year of achievements for AutoCAD WS. With nearly 10,000,000 users worldwide, AutoCAD WS has become the leading mobile and web CAD app for on-site work, collaboration and design. As we’re wrapping up 2012, let’s take a look back at what we’ve done in this passing year and what we’re working on for 2013.

Let’s start with exploring some of the milestones we had in 2012: Early this year we introduced viewing of 3D designs within AutoCAD WS and a set of geo-location tools based on the device’s GPS sensor. Our next version introduced the Design Feed, a popular new feature gaining more and more momentum and offers you a new way to manage your markups and comments in the design and review or discuss them with your colleague, engineer, architect or contractor. We also featured attaching images to the design and last but not least, we’ve made significant improvements in the application’s interface, turning the viewing and editing experience smoother and even more enjoyable. 2012 was a fascinating year for us as we expended the boundaries on one hand and on the other constantly kept improving the existing tools. We saw the amazing changes that AutoCAD WS has brought into different industries and how taking your tablet to the field can significantly increase your productivity and collaborative work.

So, what’s coming in 2013 you ask? well, 2013 is going to be a huge year for AutoCAD WS. If you think 2012 was packed with goodies, just wait, you ain’t seen nothing yet. In 2013 you can expect big announcements along with some long awaited features. We don’t want to give away too many spoilers but what we can say is that if this has been a repeating request, there’s a good chance you’ll see it even sooner than you think. Is it going to be creation of new drawings? Coordinates and ID? Supporting larger files? Additional design and annotation tools? Win8 version? The list of possibilities is so long.. who knows.. (well, we do but you will too soon).

We would like to thank our millions of users again for your amazing support and feedback in 2012. As AutoCAD WS continues to grow as a rich, secured and robust CAD application, we would like to invite you all to share your thoughts and feedback with us.
