Features of Direct Print & Share

  • You can print PDF documents and drawings, JPEG and TIFF images, and HP-GL/2 drawings without opening the corresponding applications.

  • You can confirm the print layout in previews, and configure print settings without opening the driver properties.

  • You can print files without displaying the Direct Print & Share screen by creating a Shortcut Print icon, and dropping a file onto the icon.

  • You can print multiple files at once, enabling you to efficiently print large volumes of drawings and images.

  • You can access cloud storage and upload, download, and print files all in Direct Print & Share.

  • Files uploaded to cloud storage can be shared with other users. Users you share files with will receive notification emails when files are uploaded (Google Drive only).

  • You can save frequently used print settings. You can also call saved settings and print.

  • Printing history is saved for a specified period of time. You can also print from the saved printing history.

  • By using plugins, you can add drawings created with Autodesk's AutoCAD to the file list used in Direct Print & Share. Drawings you create can easily be printed or shared with other users through cloud storage using Direct Print & Share.
