We released our 2012 Plant Design Suites earlier this fall – and one of the key new components in AutoCAD Plant 3D was a new isometric drawing creation engine. For some time now, customers have requested we look into creating a new solution for generating isometrics from a 3D piping model. This was our first release containing the newly developed Autodesk isometrics generation engine.
Now, we’ve taken the engine into the cloud. On Autodesk Labs, we have just gone live with our AutoCAD® Isometrics WS technology preview. This preview takes an uploaded PCF (or a zip of many PCFs) and generates isometric drawings.

Also, check out Scott Sheppard’s It’s Alive In the Labs post on the Isometrics WS Technology Preview for more information and details on how to give feedback.
We created a short video showing the AutoCAD® Isometrics WS technology preview in action :
PS: As a technology preview – its free! Check it out and let us know what you think.
