Autodesk AutoCAD Web is a standalone subscription, opening up access to AutoCAD on web and mobile. It provides drafting and design capabilities.

This offering allows for access to collaborative workflows enabling users to bring teams together to review and edit CAD drawings. The cloud-based CAD solution allows users to view, edit and share drawings from a browser or mobile device without the need to install any software on a computer.

What To Do With AutoCAD Web

Simplify workflows by opening DWG files directly in AutoCAD on the web or on mobile from Autodesk Drive, Autodesk Docs, Microsoft OneDrive, Box, Dropbox or Google Drive. AutoCAD Web provides additional functionality beyond what is available in DWG TrueView and other free Autodesk DWG viewers.

AutoCAD Web gives access to fundamental drafting commands and capabilities: take measurements and add dimensions to drawings, create and modify blocks, organize drawings with layers, display external references, use object grips, and more.

When away from the office, make use of a key feature of AutoCAD on the web to edit designs, such as the Trace feature, which allows users to review and add feedback directly to DWG files without altering the existing drawing.

With AutoCAD on mobile, users can head down to the job site and mark up changes straight from a device without an internet connection, and sync the work later, allowing users to take CAD drawings into the field and beyond.

For more details, sign in at or install the mobile app and work straight from your device. Try AutoCAD Web out for yourself with a 30-day free trial.
