It doesn't sound too good but I guess you get for what you pay.


I dont know why you think you have to pay, in the Windows version creating and editing is for free!


its not free anymore by the looks of things. it was a basic program and was great cause it was free but i wouldn't pay for it

By your review I have concluded that definitively A360 does not replace the vectorial functionality of previous, well known versions of CAD. On the other hand, if you cannot start from scratch (blank dwg) then that means I still need other application to create them and A360 also???? This is totally absurd from Autodesk. Are we looking at the fall stage of AutoCAD??? What other options are available in the market??? Too many questions, too little information.

You don't need another CAD program to start a new drawing; Autodesk withdrew that function from the free version of AutoCAD 360 to force you to purchase the paid version. The workaround is to use a free CAD system like DraftSight to make the starter drawing.

AutoCAD 360 is the first step towards a full version of AutoCAD on the Web, available only on subscription. From statements made by Autodesk execs, it appears this project is at least two years behind schedule -- thankfully!
