Overall Satisfaction with AutoCAD 360

AutoCAD 360 is being used by our organization to allow for drafters to sync their projects online to be able to compose, edit, and revise drawing files from multiple locations on different computers. All of our drafters across the entire organization utilize this functionality. It solves the problem of storing files locally on individual computers.
  • Allows our entire design team to share and review information graphically in one location (cloud-based).
  • Has the capability to fluidly interact with many other Autodesk software products.
  • Being able to use AutoCAD 360 on the iPad is a great feature without having to install the software.
  • The autoCAD commands are different on the iPad.
  • The price is high.
  • Does not sync to Windows folders.
  • This software has a high cost. Should be included with the desktop version.
  • Autodesk has done a great job of utilizing the cloud to help get jobs done. It helps a lot if you need to work remotely. It makes things much easier when you are working on a project and problems arise. These things have saved our company money.
  • It is really simple to set up and connect all your auto-desk tools. Thus, again, saving labor time for the company.
Although DraftSight is free and open source, AutoCAD 360 is better than DraftSight because more people use it. AutoCAD caters more to the "big" user base. It has a rather large learning curve though, however, there are many Youtube videos on explanations of how to use the commands and the many other functions.
We utilize the software for remote access to our projects. It has come in the handiest when an unexpected issue arises and we don't have the right project files on our laptop. We can easily access our information from the cloud. If you need to download/print to a PDF file, this software is not able to do this.
