Looking for a way to extract AutoCAD data so users can view in Google Earth? Avatech has a nifty solution (in Beta). Avatech experts have developed Earth Connector, a Google Earth add-in currently in beta form, for use with AutoCAD. It works within AutoCAD 2006 and 2005 by using the ExtractKML command, and lets you place CAD objects into the Google Earth worldview.
