With Splashtop, you can remotely access your computer running AutoCAD from any other device and take control it as if you were sitting in front of it.

AutoCAD is one of the most popular drawing and 3D modeling software applications used by business professionals and students. It’s a powerful drafting program widely used by architects, engineers, developers, and is frequently taught in CTE courses.

However, users are often limited to accessing AutoCAD through certain computers, usually their work computer in the office or a lab computer at school. This is because many personal devices at home aren’t powerful enough to run AutoCAD, and licensing to personal devices can get expensive.

So how can you use AutoCAD while working from home?

Whether you’re a business professional, or an entire business organization or educational institution, then we’re happy to tell you that Splashtop has the best remote desktop software.
