Cad Connectors and Converters

Connector for AutoCAD ()

Connector for AutoCAD provides a collaborative, design data management solution when combined with Collaborative Innovation. It allows designers to access and share each other’s designs from within the native computer-aided design (CAD) user interface.


Connector for AutoCAD allows designers to effortlessly access, manage, share, and store AutoCAD data without leaving their preferred environment. Connector for AutoCAD facilitates the process workflow, increases data integrity and improves configuration management. Users can search and browse the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform all from within the AutoCAD application or Windows Explorer environment. They can checkout and check in their designs on their local drives for better performance. The checkout process automatically caches the necessary files locally and checking in automatically uploads the files to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
