Request for Feedback on Google Earth Extension for #AutoCAD-based products

OK, it's not about Revit, but it still allows for collaboration. Isn't it just wonderful that Autodesk keeps verticalizing AutoCAD. It gets more and more confusing as to what is the right software product for you to use. In the end, it's going to be what the contractors decide in an IPD world. I don't know any contractors who are considering AutoCAD or AutoCAD Architecture as an alternative to Revit products. It's just not an option for them.

In the end, it's all about collaboration. Anything that Autodesk does to become more Google like is a step in the right direction. It's all about the information and the sharing of that information. Although I want the labs to spend more and more time on Revit and Navisworks products, they are doing great things.

Request for Feedback on Google Earth Extension for AutoCAD-based products: "

We're listening for your suggestions.

Right now the Google Earth Extension for AutoCAD allows you to:

  1. Publish your 3D models from AutoCAD directly into the Google Earth.

  2. Import a Google Earth image into AutoCAD.

  3. Drape a Google Earth image onto a 3D mesh in AutoCAD.

  4. Attach time span information to your AutoCAD model.

For those who don't have it yet:

For those who have used it:

    If we were to make changes to the technology preview, what one or two changes should we make? How do you use the Google Earth extension now? If we made your suggested changes, how would your workflow be improved? Please let us know at labs.acad.google@autodesk.com. Inquiring minds want to know!

Now is your chance to shape the future of this technology.

Soliciting feedback is alive in the lab.
