How to Store Your AutoCAD WS Drawings Anywhere
7:37 pm  .   May 3, 2011  .   admin

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:

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.

    Hi there,
    first of all let me thank you for that cool project!
    This new feature is really interesting and useful…I wonder if the connection is applicable to a folder on a NAS in a LAN without a server?
    again congratulations for the project, thanks and good luck!

    bye
    Luca

      Hi Luca,

      Your storage system needs to be able to expose file data using the webDAV protocol. Most storage and file management systems do. See more here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebDAV

    Amazing, adding this option helps our work processes and reduces the load on which who were in charge of updating and synchronizing measurement files.
