AutoCAD for Mac will also be offered free to students and educators through the Autodesk Education Community, where more than 25 Autodesk software products are available for download
The AutoCAD WS mobile application will enable AutoCAD users to edit and share AutoCAD files on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch so they can have real-time collaboration even while on the go.
From Autodesk… “We’re announcing a new mobile app for the Apple iPhone and iPad, as well as plans to release Project Butterfly as a web and mobile application we will call AutoCAD WS. Using your Butterfly (or AutoCAD WS) account you will be able to edit and share your AutoCAD drawings from a web browser or mobile device. All will be coming later this fall, so please stay tuned!”
