tech tip : email a cad file

Coordinating autocad drawings with consultants can be a hassle. File sizes can sometimes get large, making the file hard to email. Design firms are starting to invest in FTP websites and with the recent boom in 'cloud technology,' this problem will soon be a thought of the past. For those of you who are still looking for the quick fix to this problem, fear not. Autocad has the solution!

To easily send an autocad file the command is ETRANSMIT (you can also find this under File --> etransmit). This command will bind all of the x-refs, blocks, and lines in the drawing and compress the file into a smaller, email-able file. When the command is run it will bring up a new box. Clik OK and the a new file will be saved to your folder!
