Email is the primary way companies communicate. Using email, we can ship our drawings to clients or sub-consultants in a matter of seconds. In this lesson, we are going to learn how to use AutoCAD to email our drawings. On my screen I have a mechanical part. Let's say I would like to get this part mass produced, and I would like to email the drawing to a machinist to get a cost estimate. The easiest way to do that is to open the Application Menu. I will come down to Send, and I will select Email, and AutoCAD automatically launches my Email program, creates a New document, and adds my file as an Attachment.
All I have to do is enter my machinist's email address. I can type a brief message, and I can click Send. As you can see, emailing a drawing from AutoCAD couldn't be easier. In less than five clicks you can send the file on its way and be certain that your clients have the most current version of your design.
