CAD on Mobile Devices: Is it Ready? Do we Need It?
Whether you’re on the shop floor or at a customer site, sometimes when you need your CAD data the most is when you’re farthest away from it. But despite vendors touting “design anywhere” capabilities, access to CAD functionality from your mobile device often leaves you with imprecise control, limited functionality, and massive frustration.
With recent advances in smartphone and tablet technology, are mobile devices finally ready to support full CAD functionality…and more importantly, are CAD programs ready to step up to the challenge?
This eBook will help you understand what you can expect from CAD on mobile devices, and what you should look for—including compute power, interaction style and performance and usability.
