What will happen to the CADLearning platform and content?

Eagle Point’s Content Development Team will be reviewing CADLearning’s content and porting over any content that brings additional value to the Pinnacle Series content offering. This will happen over time with the most used content prioritized first.

Eagle Point’s Platform Development Team will be reviewing CADLearning’s platform to understand the various feature sets to see which can bring increased value to the Pinnacle Series platform. The feature sets that bring additional value will be prioritized and incorporated into the Pinnacle Series platform over time. However, the most important priority for the Pinnacle Series Development Team is the current development of the Peak Experience.

I’m a current Pinnacle Series subscriber — how does this impact me?

If you’re a current Pinnacle Series subscriber, you will not see any changes right away. Our teams are evaluating CADLearning and its content and may choose to integrate some features and functions that will benefit our subscribers at a later date.

What’s New with Revit 2024

Fresh from the Factory, Revit 2024 is rolling out globally! In this release, we’ve combined eagerly anticipated additions, like Site Tools for landscape designers, with highly requested enhancements from the community, like Dark Theme and a more modern user interface.

We’re thrilled to share the latest advancements in Autodesk Revit, spanning across the 2023 and 2024 releases. With each new version, Revit evolves to meet your needs, delivering better performance, enhanced features, and seamless collaboration opportunities. Let’s dive into the exciting highlights:


Introducing Site Tools for Revit & Revit LT.

This new toolset supports the design and documentation of richly detailed landscapes. You can use Site Tools to:

  • Collect and rationalize existing conditions data from CAD Imports, CSV point files, and more.
  • Model your design intent freely and easily, with versatile site and massing tools for modeling topography.
  • Populate schedules, sheets, and views and calculate material quantities. Cut, fill, join, and run phasing scenarios. Use the design-to-documentation engine of Revit to save time and improve design quality when modeling landscape and site conditions.


Save time in concrete detailing.

Structural engineers and rebar detailers have new capabilities for creating, scheduling, and documenting rebar. Use the new bar bending details to:

  • Create reinforcement drawings and schedules with detailed fabrication instructions. With this new tool in Revit, when the model changes, the details adapt along with it.
  • Add and customize rebar bending details so that your views and sheets respect your typical practice.
  • Reduce errors and omissions in your document sets.


Evolve work together.

Link Coordination Model from Autodesk Docs into Revit makes it easier for project teams to sync and coordinate design deliverables. Keep project files light and teams on the same page.

  • Link models and views from any of the 60+ formats supported by Docs and the Autodesk Construction Cloud directly into Revit.
  • Underlay the coordination model as visual reference when designing in Revit.
  • Reduce the need for interpretation when coordinating up-to-date design deliverables with partners and project teams.


Revit 2023: Power-Packed Enhancements

Revit 2023 arrives with a wave of refinements, tailored to elevate your design-to-documentation workflows. Building upon your valuable feedback, over 30 feature requests from the Revit Ideas platform have been incorporated. From subtle quality-of-life improvements to groundbreaking innovations, Revit 2023 is designed to enhance your experience.

Key Highlights:

  • Improved modeling and documentation tools, including enhanced schedule filtering and conditional formatting.
  • Structural engineers enjoy revamped analytical modeling, granting greater flexibility and control.
  • Electrical engineers benefit from efficient load analysis workflows, streamlining project planning.
  • Seamless integration between FormIt Pro and Revit, facilitating design concept transition.
  • Enhanced BIM data management and collaboration with Autodesk Docs.


Revit 2024: Evolving Excellence

Building upon the success of Revit 2023, Revit 2024 introduces even more features aimed at refining your design process, amplifying productivity, and enriching collaborative efforts.

Noteworthy Additions:

  • Introducing Site Tools for landscape design, offering detailed modeling and documentation capabilities.
  • Streamlined rebar detailing with new bar bending details, reducing errors and optimizing fabrication instructions.
  • Enhanced coordination with Autodesk Docs, simplifying cross-team collaboration and design synchronization.

These releases demonstrate Autodesk’s commitment to continuously innovate and elevate your design experience. The integration of user-requested features and cutting-edge technologies ensures that Revit remains a cornerstone of the architectural, engineering, and construction landscape.

Top Things you need to know about AutoCAD Web

AutoCAD Web allows users to access AutoCAD score commands and fundamental drafting capabilities on the web. It is a cloud-based solution for CAD, which allows you to view, edit, create and share drawing from your browser or mobile device without the need to install software on your computer. 

Don’t forget, the AutoCAD web and mobile apps are part of your AutoCAD subscription entitlement!

Currently, access to the full features of AutoCAD on mobile is available through the subscription to the Premium or Ultimate tiers of the AutoCAD mobile app which also comes as an entitlement to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.

Access to AutoCAD on the web is similarly available with the subscription to AutoCAD or to AutoCAD LT but is also available through the web app program. For $100 yearly, AutoCAD Web makes it easier than ever to work anytime, everywhere on any device.



Autodesk launched the AutoCAD web program in July of 2020 to help customers adjust to the changing pandemic work situation by providing free access to the features of the AutoCAD web app. As we have all adjusted to the new normal, the web app program has concluded, and AutoCAD web is in its place. As a result, the new AutoCAD portfolio will consist of AutoCAD Web, AutoCAD, and AutoCAD LT. Access to AutoCAD one web and mobile will now be available as part of a subscription to AutoCAD Web. or as an entitlement under AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.


Why use AutoCAD Web?

  • Access tools and commands to draft online or via mobile with the precision of AutoCAD.
  • Collaborative workflows allow you to bring teams together to review and edit CAD drawings wherever they are.
  • Open files directly from Autodesk Drive, Autodesk Docs, or leading loud storage, age providers which allow for continuous connectivity
  • Operate the cloud-based app from a web browser-no need to install AutoCAD.


What can you do with AutoCAD Web?

  1. No installation is required to edit, create, share and view CAD drawings. Sign at to begin or install the mobile app and work straight from your device.
  2. Simplify workflows by opening DWG files directly in the AutoCAD wapp or mobile ap from Autodesk Drive, Autodesk Docs, Microsoft One Drive, Box Dropbox, or Google Drive.
  3. Take your CAD drawings with you in the field and beyond: With the AutoCAD mobile app, you can work on your projects in the app without an internet connection and sync later.

AutoCAD Web provides additional functionality beyond what is available in DWG true view and other free Autodesk DWG viewers. For automation, customization, and best-in-class 2D drafting and design, AutoCAD LT remains the offer with the most features and capabilities.

System Requirements for AutoCAD Web

The AutoCAD web app is supported by the following browsers on Windows or Mac:

  • 64-bit Google Chrome (version 96 or later)
  • 64-bit Mozilla Firefox (version 100 or later)
  • 64-bit new Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based, version 96 or later)

For the best performance, it is recommended to use the latest version. Minimum processor: Intel® Celeron® CPU N3160 @ 1.60GH


Note: AutoCAD isn’t currently supported if you are using Firefox with private browsing. Firefox with private browsing prevents the use of service workers, a technology that is needed to internally communicate between the AutoCAD engine and the AutoCAD user interface. If you wish to use private browsing, you can use Google Chrome in Incognito mode.



Access to AutoCAD on the web and mobile is also included as part of an AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT subscription. After purchasing an AutoCAD Web subscription, or a subscription to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, you can sign in at to get started or download the mobile app from Google, Apple, or Microsoft app stores.
