New AutoCAD WS 1.4 with 3D, GPS and HP ePrint

Users of the mobile phones and tablets based on the Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems can now download an updated version of the mobile/cloud DWG editor - AutoCAD WS 1.4.

This free application is a DWG/DXF file viewer and editor, connected with the desktop version of AutoCAD 2012 and running on almost all OS platforms. The new version 1.4 comes with three new features:
  1. 3D - unlike the previous versions, AutoCAD WS can now display also 3D drawing entities; you can display them in a wireframe or shaded mode, navigate with pinch gestures or choose from preset view orientations
  2. GPS - you can display your current position inside the displayed DWG (e.g. a map); quite surprisingly, WS does not use the GEOGRAPHICLOCATION setting in your DWG file, you have to specify the reference point manually
  3. HP ePrint - if you have access to an HP printer connected online through the HP ePrint functionality, you can plot your drawings wherever you are, directly from AutoCAD WS (plot goes to the cloud and then to the printer/plotter in your office); besides that, WS also prints to PDF and DF files
