With CoLab you can share and open both native SolidWorks files (sldasm, sldprt) and neutral files (IGES, STEP, STL, and more). Even if the person you’re collaborating with doesn’t have SolidWorks, they will be able to open native SolidWorks formats with CoLab. That means you don’t have any data degradation when sharing 3D models.
When you need to make changes to a CAD file, you can download the file from CoLab to SolidWorks directly from your SolidWorks session. When you’ve made changes and you’re ready to get feedback on them, you can upload a brand new file or a new revision directly from your SolidWorks session into CoLab.
In addition to sharing CAD, CoLab also lets you exchange feedback by pinning comments directly to drawings and models. With files and feedback all in one place, reviews are hassle free (and up to 4x faster!)
