Yes, it's possible now. Autodesk has created their first AutoCAD application which can be run into any web browser and it is called AutoCAD WS. You can try it here: https://www.autocadws.com/ Several years people who work as engineers was forced to buy AutoCAD software even if they needed to do just as little as some drafting or even to simply view and edit Autocad .dwg files. Now with AutoCAD WS everyone can do it without installing huge software programs. Yes, I am surprised, but from other hand this was long time awaited move from Autodesk since web application and browser extension market already have many, may text, spreadsheet editors, drawing, painting tools, music and video editing tools which can be run simply in web broswer, so its just natural that everyone now trying to catch up with time and create versions for their own programs. Ok, I have tried AutoCAD WS , there is just few of AutoCAD functions, but still its amazing start!

i have gone through the site.IT IS GREAT auto cad drafting is my bread and butter.i am so amused by this. at least for simple drawings one does not have to bother about buying the software. after going through the site it seems there are lesser commands available but still many thanks idivision

You are welcome my friend - i am civil engineer so i am working with Autocad Civil 3d every day, now everything is much easier when i want to see, edit some dwg file without sitting near my home or workplace PC.

I believe this will help those that just need to view a file from the programs so they don't have to buy the whole program to do so. That in itself is good. I believe as more people use the site and give suggestions and such, that the site will grow with more tools, to be able to do even more in the browser. Will just take time for the programmers to develop the code. Good start as you say.

Actually those who wanted to just convert .dwg files was able to do it for free when installed dwg true viewer program, but this one have advantage - it dont need any installation and can be run on every PC which have internet.

Cool, but it lacks too many of AutoCAD functions and tools to be called full AutoCAD program i think.
