Storage anywhere – that’s the motivation behind this exciting new feature which we also call Connect to Service. Now you can read and write content from and to a wide variety of online or privately hosted storage solutions including Buzzsaw, Box.net, Dropbox, MobileMe, Egnyte and any file server or SharePoint portal.
We have added a Connect button to the Drawings ribbon in the browser version of AutoCAD WS.
Clicking on the Connect button, opens a simple form which guides you through connection to one of many possible storage services. We have even produced a unique tutorial for each service that will tell you everything you need to know as well as the following video to guide you through the process.
You can find the Tutorials as follows:
- Connect to AutoCAD WS with Box.net
- Connect to AutoCAD WS with Buzzsaw
- Connect to AutoCAD WS with Dropbox
- Connect to AutoCAD WS with Egnyte
- Connect to AutoCAD WS with SharePoint or other Windows Server
Once you are connected, any changes you make to your files will be applied in that account. If you delete a file using AutoCAD WS it will be deleted from your account.
DWG files that you upload to this account will not be stored on AutoCAD WS servers.
