As we’re putting the final touches on AutoCAD WS Mobile, we’re also working on another project: a new office for Autodesk Israel, the same group in charge of bringing you Project Butterfly and AutoCAD WS mobile.
Early on in the project we decided to use Project Butterfly for sharing design data between team members and managing work on site.
During the last few weeks we’ve been using the mobile app intensively on the job site. Although it was a first for our architects and project managers, who have never used (or even held) an iPad before, they quickly became very comfortable with the app and the device.
We used the mobile app on site to:
- Measure parts in the plan and elevations and compare them with built elements.
- Markup and document areas in the plan where design decision needed to be made.
- Accurately draw the positions where we would place lighting fixtures.
Since AutoCAD WS mobile is a connected app, there was no need to send everybody updated plans – they already had them in their Project Butterfly accounts, which was pretty cool!
How do you think you’ll be using AutoCAD WS mobile? let us know in the comments section.
