Box has good news for architects and professionals who work with models. The company has partnered with Autodesk to build an integration for AutoCAD with Box’s cloud storage capabilities. A plug-in makes it possible to save and open DWG projects within Box.

The new integration is available as of today. Today’s fast-paced workforce requires the flexibility to work anytime, anywhere,” said senior vice president Amy Bunszel of Autodesk. The new integration of Box and AutoCAD makes a simple solution available to Box customers. That way they can work wherever they are, whether in a workplace or in a customer’s office, without being disturbed by the AutoCAD web app.

Accessible from anywhere

AutoCAD is a commercial application for companies and professionals that allows them to create designs. The app is used by millions of people worldwide and made its debut in 1982. Many blueprints, product designs, maps and other things are designed in it. These are often products that are somehow linked to the construction sector, but also to the industrial sector.

Box for AutoCAD allows users to quickly access project files. The application can be used on desktop, web or mobile platforms, which means that the options for users of both services are immediately very broad. DWG files can be modified within Box and are synchronized directly. An additional advantage is that the apps comply with Box’s safety policy, with which they are kept safe.

Together, Box and Autodesk are committed to continuously bringing new innovative solutions to our customers to help them work smarter and faster than ever before, says Box in a blog post. The release of this integration marks the first step in our partnership, but many more will follow.
