The Best CAD App

Updated on January 5, 2012

AutoCAD WS App

AutoCAD is arguably the best 2D CAD software package on the market. AutoCAD now offers an app for the iPhone, iPad, and Android systems. The app is more than a simple CAD file viewer. It can check measurements, draw basic shapes, and save notes. The best part is it free to download. The AutoCAD App is a must have on every engineer's and architect's smartphone.

To use, simply email the cad file to an email address that is accessible on your smartphone or follow the directions to save the file directly to your phone by connecting it to your computer. The app is remarkable easy to use and surprisingly fast.

I was happy to be able to open drawing attachments on my phone. I wasn't expecting that it had a measuring tool, let alone basic drawing functions. The AutoCAD app is the start of the next generation of drafting. It won't be long before I don't grab a pen and paper to go to the plant floor to sketch a part and then return to my desk to draw it. I'll be able to do it all from my phone or tablet.
