In order to take advantage of AutoCAD WS, we first need to create an account. I'll start by bringing up my default web browser. I will then visit the autocadws.com website. This is where we access the AutoCAD WS service. To create an account, I'll come over and click the Create Account button. There is no charge to use this service. I'll then enter my credentials starting with my email address and then name and password information.
As a side-note, we are currently using the English language version of the software. If you'd like to use a different language, you can use this menu in the upper-right corner of the interface to select an alternate. I'm going to switch this back to English, and if you'll indulge me for just one second, there is never a great time to talk about logging out of the service. So, since we're at a point where we just logged in, let me show you how we can exit. To log out of AutoCAD WS, we can use the Logout hyperlink in the upper-right corner of the interface.
I will then choose Yes when prompted. This will return me to my Browser. I'm going to close this to return to the Desktop. Now that we've successfully created an AutoCAD WS account, and we know how to access the software and how to log out of the service, we're ready to move onto the next video where we'll log back in and take a tour of the AutoCAD WS interface.
