Hi

Fusion 360 has the same sort of “slurp it up” and “net connection” requirements. Anything 
you do is (at least potentially) not exclusively yours. Fine for a basement. As you point out
a bit nuts for any corporation. My guess is that there is or will be some sort of corporate server
connection to take care of the issue. At leas in Fusion, there is no obvious way to make that
happen. It’s a complicated program so who knows what may be lurking in there somewhere ….

Also the EULA seems to say they can slurp your designs at will and ship them off to who knows who/where.   Autocad seems to be totally un-aware of the rabid IP protection that companies require these days.
