Using the Internet to Access and View Drawings

With the popularity of the Internet and corporate intranets growing at a phenomenal rate, it only makes sense to expand AutoCAD's Internet-based functionality. You'll find this has been accomplished by adding several Internet-aware tools that make working with the Internet easier. Whether you want to collaborate on a project over the Internet or just open files from a corporate intranet site, this chapter will show you how to use the features in AutoCAD 2000 to accomplish these tasks.

Web-Enabled File Dialog Boxes

Most of the file dialog boxes within AutoCAD 2000 recognize Internet file addresses, or uniform resource locators (URLs), which means you can easily access files from Internet sites. Just as with opening a file from your hard drive or from a network, you need to know the file's path or location. In the case of using URLs, these indicate the location of the Internet Web server and indicate where a file resides on the server.
