Q - question

Concurrent editing of a DWG file from two remote PCs.

A - answer WS With AutoCAD 360 (WS, free web-cloud version of AutoCAD) you can edit a single DWG drawing from multiple computers at the same time. All users can see all drawing changes in real time, including all zooms and pans, and all cursor movements by remote users participating in the particular concurrent-editing session. The editing can be performed in the mobile or browser versions of the CAD application available on The changes are stored in a single DWG file and you can use the Timeline history to revert them back to one of the previous versions of the DWG file.

The edited DWG drawing is stored in the web-cloud storage of the "Autodesk 360" service (in the account of the initiator of the session). This online drawing can be automatically synchronized with the desktop version of AutoCAD.

An example of such concurrent editing session can be seen on the CAD Studio's YouTube channel:

A related functionality of concurrent viewing of two drawings in a single AutoCAD session is provided by the DWGsync add-on tool.
