Hi Don - is there a documented road map for updates to ArcGIS for AutoCAD and future releases with planned features and functionalities?
The next release of ArcGIS for AutoCAD 400 will include full support for Portal and Online named users (scheduled for release summer 2019). It has been re-architected as an implementation of ArcGIS Runtime. It will include support for ArcGIS Online/Portal hosted services and map layers. It will have an new add data experience that understands your named user identity, organization groups etc. The data browser will help guide you to more and relevant content such as direct access to the living atlas. As a by-product of the Runtime implementation, this release will also support feature layers shared with table joins. The map service draw behavior has been enhanced for faster uninterrupted dynamic map service behavior that I think people will like. It "should" also by that time support any newer version of AutoCAD.
There are lots of additional functionality in our roadmap competing for attention in future releases. Is there something you are specifically looking for sooner than later?
Hi Don -
Can you tell me a little bit more about what you mean by 'architected as an implementation of ArcGIS Runtime'? Will there be native capabilities to import a CAD drawing into ArcGIS Runtime?
The implementation detail regarding "runtime" is probably an unnecessary detail to share. The next release does not include file based access. ArcGIS for AutoCAD is an AutoCAD plug-in application so it already supports CAD.
Don Kuehne checking in to see if 400 is available. Needing this for our AutoCAD users since Jan 2019. Do you have a more refined release date for us?
Updated release date at the time of writing this looks more like late fall 2019.
