Plex.Earth Update: TimeViews – Import Up to date Satellite Imagery directly into AutoCAD

Update: Try a Plex Earth Free Trial now to get Started:

Hey Everybody,

Todays post is a quick one, but an exciting one. You might remember the post I did a few months ago (linked here) when Plex.Earth announced their partnership with Bird.I and shared their plans to integrate up to date satellite imagery directly into AutoCAD!

I know I was super excited and couldn’t wait to try it out, well it’s now available in the latest version of Plex.Earth which can be downloaded here along with some more detailed info on the new feature and update:

Another cool announcement from Plex.Earth this week is that any new or existing Plex.Earth user can use and try out the new TimeViews feature for free until the end of August.  With it, we can bring up to date or specifically targeted sat imagery into AutoCAD for background or tracking project progress. bird.i Dubai Marina

From Plex.Earth:

Timeviews™ brings Bird.i’s most recent (even a few days old) high-res satellite imagery from DigitalGlobe, Airbus and Planet into your AutoCAD designs.

This way, you can get the most current view of your project area for any place in the world (you can read more here and watch our new video tutorial). 

So, for anyone who has a Plex.Earth subscription, all  they have to do is download the latest Plex.Earth version here and follow the in-app instructions to view in AutoCAD as many images as they like for free, until the end of August. 

I’m excited to use and try out the new feature myself and I’m curious to hear all of your thoughts on it as well! Let me know in the comments if you’ve used Timeviews or Plan to try it out this month for yourself?

As always, thank you so much for reading and watching, have a great day.

Cheers and happy drafting!
