Collaborating on mechanical design can be a painful process...

Engaging Stakeholders
Consolidating feedback
Coordinating design



Web Design

Of a mechanical design team's time is lost to miscommunication caused by disorganized design feedback



Feedback is delivered across various mediums, and follows a linear flow of information



Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare.



Non-technical stakeholders such as sales and management don't have access to 3D content



Design progress is impossible to accurately track and report on

But it doesn't have to be.

Gradient allows you to upload 2D and 3D design files to the web and easily share them with internal and external stakeholders. Carry out design reviews and gather feedback in real-time in a centralized location.

Upload 2D & 3D Content

With support for 60+ file formats, you can drag and drop native files from almost all major CAD programs, including Solidworks, Catia, Inventor, Fusion360, Sketchup, Creo, and NX.

Share with Stakeholders

Allow collaborators to review on their own time, or carry out scheduled design reviews using Gradient's Live Review system.

Create Issues and Tasks

All collaborators are able to flag issues, capture upcoming tasks, and view and comment on those created by others.

Markup Model Shots

Take screenshots of your design files and mark them up from within your web browser. Attach markups directly to issues.

Track Progress

Track design progress, manage deadlines and stay ahead of tasks with Gradient's project dashboard.
