Introducing the Design Feed from AutoCAD WS 1.5

It's finally here. The latest update for AutoCAD WS just came out and one of the features that all of its users should watch out is the new Design feed.

Autocad Design Feed

Now for those who haven't seen it or used AutoCAD WS yet. It is a web app (what's a web app?) that lets you view and edit DWG files without any CAD software installed on your machine. So it means that you always can view and edit your drawings whenever you have access to the file and the internet. I know, you got the idea right? If you like to get on its official website it is located at

Autodesk released the next version of AutoCAD WS Mobile release 1.5. It has a new feature called Design Feed which is a mechanism for context-specific posts (like on social networking sites) that allow real time and asynchronous collaboration from within the drawing file. It is located on the right side of the screen that looks like a thread of comments wherein designers could add a post and tag involved people on the projcect. Yes, they have taken the best things about the social networking website and infused them into the design process. They recognized the need to provide tools that help us collaborate with our team on our own time in an intuitive and streamlined way.  These people could then receive an email letting them know about the latest information about the project and then they could open a link to that file and see what's going on. For more details see video below.

The AutoCAD WS 1.5 Design feed is totally leveraging the best of the cloud to help us achieve the best design collaboration that users and designers needs.
