  • Search: From AutoCAD environment,Search for CAD documents available in ARAS.You can search by latest version, revision etc
  • Checkout: Checkout searched AutoCAD documents along with its reference data from ARAS
  • Lock: Acquire lock on CAD Document so that it has exclusive edit access for the locker
  • Unlock: Release lock on CAD document, so that other users can edit the CAD document
