Autodesk is testing a Windows Phone version of the company's AutoCAD 360 app, which is currently available on Windows 8.1. The Windows app was released last year, allowing users to view DWG, DWF, and DXF files. It's a feature-rich experience and we're pretty stoked to hear it's coming to mobile.
The AutoCAD closed group of testers have received invitations from the company to try out this trial version of the Windows Phone app. Unfortunately, not much else was revealed and we're short on details, but it's good to know such an app is in the works. Here's what is currently available in the Windows version:
- Open 2D and 3D DWG drawings uploaded to your free* AutoCAD 360 online account
- Work offline, then easily upload changes when you are back online
- Upload and open files directly from email or your device
- See all aspects of your DWG file, including external references, layers, and image underlays
- Use multi-touch zoom and pan to easily navigate large drawings
- Draw and edit shapes with accuracy using Snap
- Select, move, rotate, and scale objects
- Add and edit text annotations directly on your drawing; no need for paper mark-ups
- Validate distance measurements in the drawing while you are onsite
- Save edits to your AutoCAD 360 online workspace, so your drawings stay up to date
- Share your designs with others directly from the mobile app
- Add comments and images and invite responses using the Design Feed
- Plot your designs to PDF or DWF and share them via email
We'll hopefully have more to go on soon, as well as an idea of just how many items from the above list will make it to the mobile release. Would you be interested in AutoCAD 360 for Windows Phone?
