Engineers who are always on the run — whether at a client site or traveling on the road — now have a great option for managing CAD drawings on their iPhone or iPad. The TurboViewer X app provides engineers with the ability to view DWG files from an iOS powered mobile device, and it comes at a nice price as well.

AutoCAD files look great within the app, especially on the larger screen real estate of the iPad. TurboViewer X is a universal iOS app, so both iPhone and iPad native versions are included in the download file. In addition to the paid version, a free edition of the app is also available which is great for trying out its functionality.

An AutoCAD Viewer for iOS

In addition to its leveraging of the iOS multi-touch interface features for panning and zooming drawings in 2D and 3D, TurboViewer X also takes advantage of Apple’s iCloud web storage facility for the sharing of files. Dropbox, FTP, and other Cloud-based storage options are also supported.

The developer also provides an online forum for support and sharing tricks of the trade, which is sure to be a boon when trying to figure out an issue when at a client site. The app also includes access to an online wiki help system. Any engineer who regularly uses AutoCAD needs to check out TurboViewer X.
