In addition to connecting across devices, with AutoCAD 2022, you can connect to other products within the Autodesk ecosystem. With new Push to Autodesk Docs, you can publish your drawings from AutoCAD to Autodesk Docs and with the AutoCAD web app, you can now connect to files stored in Autodesk Docs and Autodesk Drive. This enables smoother workflows and file sharing between AutoCAD 2022 and other Autodesk products. It doesn’t stop there. AutoCAD also connects to leading cloud storage providers including Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Box and Dropbox.

Below we dive into how you can benefit from what’s new in AutoCAD 2022 and AutoCAD LT 2022.

Streamline drawing review cycles with Trace

Trace a multiplatform digital workflow that lets you collaborate with your team wherever they are and streamlines the drawing review cycle. You and your collaborators can markup DWG files without altering the existing drawing, on any device, improving digital collaboration.

Improve your collaboration process with Share

With Share, you can now securely share your drawings with your team and colleagues directly from AutoCAD, giving you more control and is a secure way to digitally collaborate with your team anytime, anywhere.

Increase accuracy through automation with Count

Count automates the counting of blocks or geometry to save you time and reduce errors. You can export data to a dynamic table and get updates quickly. By cutting down on manual counting, you can avoid miscounting parts or ordering incorrect quantities.

Improve efficiency with Push to Autodesk Docs

Push to Autodesk Docs improves workflow efficiency within the Autodesk ecosystem by allowing you to publish CAD drawing sheets as PDFs directly from AutoCAD to Autodesk Docs. You no longer need to save PDFs locally, open a web browser, or upload the sheets to the cloud.

View and edit multiple drawings at the same time with Floating windows

Floating windows allows you to edit multiple drawings at the same time in a single instance of AutoCAD. You can conveniently pull away drawing tabs to view them as fully functional windows side by side, or on multiple monitors in the same instance of AutoCAD.

Connect to Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs

Autodesk Drive and Autodesk Docs connections have now been added to the AutoCAD web app, enabling you to conveniently connect to your files within the Autodesk ecosystem. With these new integrations, you can take advantage of anytime access to any DWG file with AutoCAD.

Enhancements and improved performance

AutoCAD 2022 offers enhancements that include a faster and customizable installation letting you even work in AutoCAD while the program is being installed. The typical number of interactions to install the product has been reduced, and you can also enjoy an improved graphics performance and a redesigned start tab, allowing for easier file access and other helpful content directly from the home screen.
