Design Review Mobile for Android


Autodesk have released Design Review for Android. Features include:-

Expedite the design review process by viewing and redlining design files while in the field or out of the office.

View and mark up drawings on the spot, reduce the need to carry around over-sized paper drawings, and enjoy an all-digital design review workflow on your mobile device.


  • Open and view 2D and 3D DWF files from your Autodesk Cloud  documents account
  • Use multi-touch gestures to zoom, pan, and rotate drawings
  • View meta data and other details about elements within your technical drawings


  • Use simple redlining and intuitive mark up tools to communicate changes
  • Add text or comments using familiar callouts

does someone know if this works only with an internet connection or can the drawings be saved on the phone and opened/viewed/marked directly on the phone (not over internet)?

Android Design review? I've been on the fence between i Pad and the Toshiba Thrive, this could be a major game changer.

Saso, it all works through the Autodesk Cloud documents, where you first upload your files; not directly from files saved on your phone.

David, how do you find the functionality. I feel like it would be much more useful if it allowed sectioning of the model or a walking option.

Can i BIM it? said...

Too bad i don't own a andoid yet

Our current clients use the iPad extensively, so this is a great presentation tool. I've been trying to utilize it as much as possible but theres a lot to be desired.

As Edwin stated a walking feature, like the "CadFaster" app would be great, as well as the ability to change the visual style, from shaded to hidden line, etc.

Hoping they develop this app further, its a great app so far...
