i-drop Indicator

Autodesk i-drop technology allows users of i-drop aware Autodesk products to drag and drop  DWG files directly from our website into their design application.  If you are not sure if you have the i-drop indicator, or, if you would like to download the free i-drop plug-in, please click the icon, right.:

How does it work?
After completing the download and installation of the i-drop plug-in, you will see the i-drop indicator, left, whenever you preview an image in GIF view (cad).   To invoke the i-drop drag-and-drop capability, left-click on the GIF image of the drawing, and hold, then drag that file from our web page into your opened Autodesk product.  Release the left mouse button to download the content into your design application.

i-drop will work on most, current Microsoft Windows platforms with Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or higher.  To download the latest version of Explorer, click
here.  i-drop is not Netscape compatible.  Netscape users are welcome to do a standard download of our zipped DWG files by selecting "Download" (folder) from the GIF view.

The i-drop capability functions with the following design applications:  Newer versions of the applications below also support i-drop.
