Reduce Repetitive Feedback Cycles With Guided 3D Reviews

Create dynamic 3D presentations and assign team members for review. Easily communicate design intent, identify changes and share feedback. CoLab automatically updates reviews as files get revised, so you only have to create a review once.

Review and Issue Drawings in a Fraction of the Time

CoLab’s automated document and drawing reviews allow you to quickly prepare drawing review packages and share with reviewers. Here, reviewers can provide feedback and markups directly on files, and approve reviews once complete. Shorten feedback cycles, and easily review with internal and external stakeholders.

Capture Issues in Context, Leave the Tracking to CoLab

Tag issues directly to components in the model with CoLab's 3D issue-tagging functionality. Automatically gather component information and assign responsible engineers to ensure issues are caught before they become expensive change orders

Synchronize Launch and PD Teams on One Platform

Extend 3D review and issue tracking into production with integrated assembly instructions, and CoLab’s mobile application. Engineers create dynamic, data-rich work instructions, and share for production. Production technicians communicate manufacturing issues by easily taking pictures, tying them to exact parts, and assigning an engineer - all from CoLab’s mobile application.
