A new service, Project Draw, is available on Autodesk Labs. Project Draw lets you create simple drawings with an easy to use interface that requires just a browser. No install required. Please check it out and tell us what you think: [email protected].
Software as a service (SaaS) is all the rage, but this is nothing new for Autodesk. Solutions like Buzzsaw, Constructware, and Streamline have been offered as a service for years. Project Freewheel started out on Autodesk Labs and is now available as a free service called Autodesk Freewheel. Project Freewheel continues on Autodesk Labs and lets people view and collaborate using their own design data without the need to install additional software. They just use their browsers. Other services are offered via Autodesk Labs such as Project Showroom and Content Search Alpha.
Whereas Project Freewheel allows you to work with designs created from traditional Autodesk design applications, Project Draw lets you create designs. You use a simple but powerful user interface to create shapes, add text, etc. requiring nothing more than your browser.
Project Draw is brought to you by the team who created Cumulate Draw as Cumulate Labs has been acquired by Autodesk.
