How CoLab Works

When your engineering team needs to share or review any model, drawing, or document, CoLab gets it done. CoLab is the fastest way to share and review CAD with anyone during detailed engineering design.

Create with your native CAD tools, centralize design files and conversations in one secure place, simplify and automate the process of getting (and tracking) feedback, get that input early and often, keep revisions organized so everyone is on the same page—and finally have one single source of truth that gives you the full picture of your review process and progress.

Create

Instantly create reviewable packages.

Create in CAD like you always do, then use CoLab to package any model, drawing, or document for review. Showcase your work with CoLab's powerful CAD viewer and build 3D presentations that auto-update with new revisions. If you'd typically do it with a meeting, PowerPoint, PDF, email, or Teams message—you can do it faster and easier with CoLab.

Share

Securely collaborate inside and outside your team.

With a one-click integration or quick drag-and-drop, your up-to-date design is secure in CoLab where easy-to-use access permissions and external link-sharing let you control exactly who sees what (and when).

Review

Files and feedback, side-by-side.

Reviews happen with complete design context in CoLab. Reviewers get access to your full design and can easily navigate the file (even if they're not a CAD user)—so you get deeper feedback on your designs, sooner, without needing to track it. Comments are pinned directly on your drawing or model and conversations happen quicker, with less confusion, so your review cycles shrink to half the size.

Resolve

Revise, push updated design, repeat as needed.

Don't let a 5-minute fix take up more time than it should! Resolve issues in a fraction of the time with CoLab, with an action punchlist that auto-generates as your designs are reviewed. Make changes as soon as you get them and push your updated file back to CoLab—where the automatic revision history can be viewed anytime.

Manage

A headache-free way to manage reviews.

Scale your management capacity with CoLab’s built-in oversight. Whether you’re managing your workday or a whole team, CoLab is easily configured to deliver the visibility, context, and organization you need.
