AutoCAD WS 1.4 Review

GPS support - Being in civil design I was looking forward to this little feature and love it.  It’s like placing a little me in my design.
Now I will not feel like a dork walking around London. :^)
Friends - London Baby!!

3D object viewing – I have only been able to play with one very simple 3D drawing in the new update.  Every time I try and open an advance 3D object or drawing, the application crashes.   The good news is we now have support for Civil 3D files.

Plotting – I don’t see myself using this feature that much, but is was very nice to send a .pdf via email yesterday of a drawing.

I will keep testing out the new update and try to keep you posted on what I find.

What do you think of the new update to AutoCAD WS?

Do you find the application useful?
