Paper, scans, scattered PDFs, long feedback cycles, lost data - the standard for today’s drawing review process. CoLab gives you a single location for accessing, viewing and marking up drawings with your team concurrently.
Every time your team prints a drawing or sends it out via email you are not only creating duplicates of the file, but duplicates of the feedback process. Engineering teams need to be able to access drawings and documentation in one location for feedback so they can quickly iterate, automate reporting and eliminate duplicate feedback.
If you could instantly do your markup with the click of one button, imagine what you could do with the time you saved from the other 10 steps?
Create a digital drawing package and send it to all reviewers in one step. Instantly see their markups/feedback as it comes in and shorten review cycles by over 50%.
Securely share drawing packages with manufacturers where they can view files and add feedback in a centralized location.
Procedures, design documentation, reports - review all key documentation in real time with your entire team.
Want to know how a drawing evolved from Rev 0 to Released? CoLab automatically tracks the feedback and changes history so you can easily go back and get the information you need.
Once you are done iterating on your drawing package, stakeholders can give the final approval of a package within CoLab. These approved drawings can then be pushed back into your PLM for release or stored in CoLab as your single source of truth.
"The app was amazing to have on the shop floor during our build. I would say 2 thumbs up!"
“By having a universal issue tracking system and an API we can work with, I see CoLab integrating well with our digitization plans”
Follow notifications from your email, desktop or navigate straight from the CoLab dashboard to immediately be brought to your drawing package where you can instantly review with your team.
Annotate directly on the PDF with comment boxes, clouds, arrows, text and more. Link your markups to an actionable issue so your team gets notified right away.
No more offline feedback that results in duplication. In CoLab, any number of users can markup a single drawing at once and instantly see the other stakeholder’s feedback. No more duplicate comments, or conflicting feedback left unaddressed.
As markups are created, they are automatically linked to the drawing so the next user can easily jump between the detailed issue and markup with all of the context.
If your drawing feedback requires a 3D change, CoLab allows you to also link the 3D model to the issue so the designer has all of the context to make the change. Then you can validate it’s been completed correctly in seconds.
At any point in a review you can look back at the history on the file. When it comes time to create design reports or quality metrics, your team can easily generate PDFs or CSVs to make your job a breeze.
