This is very cool. As Stephen Preston has reported, over on the Cloud & Mobile DevBlog, the A360 team has delivered a widget that can be embedded in web-pages and views design files – including DWG files saved from AutoCAD, of course – that are dragged & dropped onto it.

There are two ways to render the widget. You can either render just the drop area…
