Autodesk Design Review Now Available for the iPad and Revit #BIM #IPD #AIA

Hmmm...I hope Autodesk didn't do this just because of the post I wrote last week. We finally have the full portability we've been looking for.

Quick thoughts:
I can't take file downloaded in Buzzsaw Mobile and view it here. I'm hoping Autodesk will fix this momentarily.
The DWF sample model has 2D and 3D views. You can see all of your sheets. That's great.
The 3D view is easy to use.
Walking through the model is missing. Come on, if Archicad's version can do that, so should Autodesk.
Clicking on an object gives you all of it's element properties. That's great to find a heigh, offset or measurement or square footage. Fantastic!
You can annotate a sheet. You can't draw on it, but you can type in notes. It needs drawing/sketching capabilities and a method to email that notation quickly.
You can only annotate in 2D, not 3D. Well, we an always do a screenshot and mark it up in another program, but that misses the point.
Maybe you need an Autodesk Cloud account first. Go to http://nitrous.labs.autodesk.com and click the get started button.
Hmm....how do I share a model with someone else? It looks like I can do it from the Nitrous website, but what about from my iPad?

Got it working. How do you upload a marked up dwfx back to the cloud from the iphone or ipad? Can't find any info on how to get it off of the mobile device back to the cloud?
