I also envisage a time when one can edit files from other clouds or in a two-way sync with the autodesk cloud (which is painfully slow).
Given the lack of a usable offline mode or real cloud integration for the past few years I'm not holding my breath.
I actually think the way forward lays in using GIS for simple 2d drawing as features can be individually checked in and out so there is no need to sync a massive proprietry .dwg file. Maybe the industrial will finally be freeded from .dwg for simple files and will use revit for everything else.
Is the link for download at http://www.autodesk.com/designreview not what you want? I know it checks your system and then downloads what's missing. There are separate installers for Autodesk DWG TrueView and Autodesk Design Review. I am not aware of one EXE that has both of them and all of the possible dependencies.
I do not like the Akaimai Downloader (deleted rant..) and would prefer a solution that allows deployment to a network.
The Page your link directs to has a direct download for ADR 2013 with all dependencies (188MB Offline installer)
The link I provided is to DWG Trueview installers with all dependencies (312MB Offline installer) Both the 32 and 64-bit versions work with 32-bit ADR.
What would then be the Autodesk 360 workflow for reviewing and markup editing of dwfx exports from Inventor (or similar) in the future? I know today I can open them in ADR 2013, but since it seems like you're invisioning something else I would like to see if I can adjust my workflow before I start to educate my fellow workmates...
If ADR is to be discontinued "at some point" I would hope that 360 then have an offline mode. To assume everything can be done Online All The Time is not a good assumption to make.
Discontinuing DR is a bad move for me. I have someone who does not have / nor need Autocad, but does review my drawings, and designreview is a perfect tool for him to use.
I am trying to get some opinions together for a reaserch paper on ADR i will be submitting to various people. One new topic that has been brought to my attention is that the discontinuing of ADR and the new software they are proposing. I understand some people have a strong view onw way or the other. Please vist the forum page where i am trying to get some disscussions together and voice your opinions. Why do you prefer ADR...Will you change...
Forcing us, if we choose to continue reviewing drawings, to the cloud. Where some people, for whatever reason, prefer not to go.
Not cool, not cool.
I'm sorry to see it go as well. It was a good tool to review student work with. Unfortunately, I could never talk my clients into actually using it. They prefer to print out my dwfs, mark them up, scan them and send them back.
