Open an AutoCAD: Your .DWGs Follow You Everywhere
"The global 3D CAD software market size was estimated at USD 9.07 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 9.56 billion in 2020." (source)
The Access Problem:
In many industries, AutoCAD .dwg files are standard. The robust 2D CAD software provided by Autodesk has created power users within commercial real estate and construction professions. The number of users of CAD software is growing by the millions each year. The explosion of AutoCAD users is due to the ability to create and view building designs.
The biggest issue many AutoCAD power users encounter is the ability to access .dwg files. If you are on a computer with an Autodesk license (about $1800 per year), then you can easily view your .dwg files. If you are at a co-worker or home computer, then your files are not accessible or viewable without another license. If you are on-the-go at jobsite or client locations, access to your AutoCAD files is available for an additional subscription to AutoCAD LT (about $750 per year).
The accessibility problem with AutoCAD .dwg files is amplified by reality that usually only one or two employees in a company have a license to save money. This limited ability to access and view files creates a bottleneck in most companies for employees using AutoCAD.
