Hello everyone,

I have project requirement to create asp.net web application to collect input about drawing file(.dwg). After users enters information,they will apply their own project information for generation of dwg.

Meanwhile project have another component as window service which will use queue mechanism to gather all user projects and execute it one by one to create drawing file.

Web application will be hosted on server having AutoCad 2012 license installed.

My question is: Can I use AutoCad 2012 License to achieve this for executing multiple request one by one ? Is it violation of any license terms for execution of multiple request?

Pl advise asap.


Many Thanks in advance

Hi Rajcc,


I suggest you carefully read through the AutoCAD 2012 EULA to decide whether the specific use case you have in mind is permitted. If you plan to put a web service on a public website, then the answer is almost certainly no.


As your requirement seems to be to create DWG files, a better solution may be to create a RealDWG application (www.autodesk.com/realdwg).
