    Hi!
    I recently bought the Lumia 950 XL.
    I will eventually get the Display Dock as well.
    One of the main reasons to get the Display Dock for me would be the possibility to use CAD-programs on my smart phone along with the Display Dock.

    Will this be possible?
    I haven't had the time to browse for a proper CAD-app yet, so maybe someone here knows if there is such software available today or if it's in the pipe line to get released?
    Also, if it will be able to run with the Display Dock?

    Thanks!

    I'm not entirely sure if your plans are to use CAD software or just a viewer but I think you may have some misunderstanding of how things work.

    First, there is no current CAD apps available for Windows Phone (W10M). Pretty much all vendors have ignored it. If there is a viewer it will be third party but that's all it will be.

    The L950/XL won't run x86 software and running pretty much any CAD software (let alone Inventor) would be difficult for a phone.

    I believe with the display dock you can view your screen larger but to take advantage of the software at that size the app should be universal. I believe (but I'm not sure) that's the way that Continuum works best.
