Discuss issues without a meeting

You shouldn't have to jump between a dozen different email threads to discuss a design issue. With CoLab, your team can identify and discuss issues directly on 2D or 3D geometry. This way, you avoid confusion and reach consensus faster.

Use discussion threads to resolve issues

Every issue you create in CoLab comes with a dedicated discussion thread so your team can elaborate on design issues, propose solutions, and make decisions without ever leaving the context of the model.

Bring SMEs together with @mentions

Type '@' followed by a teammate’s name to mention them in a discussion. By using @mentions, you can bring subject matter experts into discussions at exactly the right time and ensure that important messages don’t get lost in the shuffle.

Bring SME together

Accelerate discussions with email notifications

When you assign an issue to a teammate or @mention them in a discussion thread, they'll receive an email notification. This ensures your team knows the moment you mention them, enabling them to jump from their email inbox to the discussion thread to join the conversation.

Connecting CoLab with PLM and CAD is fast, easy, and secure

CoLab integrates with major PLM systems, including Windchill, Teamcenter, and 3DEXPERIENCE. You can share CAD directly to CoLab from your PLM, maintaining critical data associations. Because CoLab accepts 30+ file types, it’s easy to review native CAD, even if you’re working with a supplier or customer that uses a different CAD tool.

Better products start with better design conversations.

If you’re ready to see how CoLab can transform the way you work with suppliers, here’s how the process works.

  • Every conversation starts with a discovery call. During this call, a technical expert will understand your team’s challenges with design review today
  • Then, we’ll tailor a demo to address those challenges. This demo includes you, of course, but also some key members from your team who can speak to your challenges in greater detail and vet CoLab as the solution.
  • Finally, we do a workshop with more members of your team. This is the fun part! During this workshop, your team will each have temporary CoLab licenses and participate in a sample design review. You and your team will be guided through key features and use cases right inside the CoLab platform.
