This course covers the basics of AutoCAD WS, focusing on workflows and collaboration that will help you and your team work more efficiently with this cloud-based CAD application. Author Jeff Bartels explains how to use the mobile and browser versions of the app, how to upload files and folders, and how to access and review drawing content. The course also shows how to perform standard markups, edit geometry and annotations, and plot to both PDF and DWF formats. A dedicated collaboration chapter demonstrates how to share drawings and use the Timeline feature to keep track of a drawing's version history.
