Re: Using Autocad with Playbook

as far as I know there is no application on the PlayBook that can read Autocad files. Sorry.

There are tools to convert DWG to PDF. For example: http://www.autodwg.com/PDF/?gclid=CLvqkNXDwKwCFRG67QodO2mfrQ

Re: Using Autocad with Playbook

There is a shortcut: AutoCAD WS is a cloud-based CAD editor from Autodesk. It is available as a web app version in your browser. To create an account is free and you can open and edit .dwg files. Just remember that you need to be connected to the web via WiFi, tethering or BB Bridge. BB Bridge tends to be really slow and I have not tried the tethering option yet, so the first alternative is the one I have been using succesfully so far.

Re: Using Autocad with Playbook

Some application  which can let you convert AutoCAD DWG file to PDF and I am using Any DWG to PDF Converter to output PDF file.
