Previewing AutoCAD documents in the document manager

We’ve been working on a function to help one of our clients who works with architectural plans and other documents created in AutoCAD. This function helps users preview files with .dxf or .dwg extensions, WITHOUT NEEDING TO DOWNLOAD THEM FIRST.



If we click on the link that appears next to the word content, it will open Athento CAD Viewer, which allows us to preview the content of the CADfile, as you can see in the screen grab below:




As you’ll be able to appreciate, the previewer is not embedded, which gives us greater usability when users have to pre-visualize the plan.
