Cloud, cloud, cloud. It's all the rage. Fear not, desktop applications are not going away. We're just giving people choices. Desktop applications like AutoCAD Plant 3D have the ability to generate isometrics. That's not changing. The misinformed believe the cloud is dead, but would you like the option of offloading this processing to the cloud? Let's find out:
The AutoCAD Isometrics WS technology preview is an Autodesk Cloud service for creating, storing, viewing, and sharing isometric drawings. You can design and collaborate on isometrics across multiple platforms - desktop, web, and mobile devices - with full DWG reliability and compatibility. Simply upload PCF files from AutoCAD Plant 3D, Autodesk Inventor, or 3rd party applications, and then generate isometric drawings without running any desktop software for isometric generation.
We're interested in your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org or the discussion forum. We'd love to hear your suggestions, success stories, or results that did not turn out as expected. That's how we hone our technologies. It's why we conduct technology previews. Your experience shapes the future of our technology. So if the motto on the Statue of Liberty is "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." then the motto of AutoCAD Isometrics WS is "Give me your designs, your output, your PCF files yearning to breathe free." Let's see if this technology can handle them?
Cloud computing is very much alive in the lab.
