At CoLab, we believe that engineers should be able to use the best tool for every job. That could mean designing in CAD, reviewing designs in CoLab, then managing product data with PLM. That’s why CoLab is compatible with over 70 file formats and has native integrations with leading CAD and PLM providers.


Since the beginning, we’ve wanted to make sharing engineering files easier. No more expensive licenses, software downloads, or taking screenshots as a workaround. With CoLab, you can upload over 70 different file formats – including step, stp, sldprt, 3ds, catpart, dwg, and more. Then, you can send them to anyone and they’ll be able to open the file with a simple web link.


CoLab’s out-of-the-box integration with Windchill makes it easy to share files directly from Windchill to CoLab with the click of a button. That means you can feel confident that everyone is reviewing the right version of every file. As you make changes throughout a product’s lifecycle, CoLab gives you traceability, so you can go back and see why a change was made.

SolidWorks + SolidWorks PDM

The CoLab SolidWorks add-in allows you to push models and drawings directly from an active SolidWorks session into your CoLab Workspace. That means you can share design information in CoLab without having to leave the SolidWorks interface. If you’re using SolidWorks with SolidWorks PDM, CoLab can also retrieve and display metadata, like version number or revision number. If you’re not using SolidWorks PDM, you can still use CoLab with SolidWorks.

Teamcenter: Coming Soon!

A growing number of CoLab customers are using Teamcenter PLM, and we are working on an out-of-the-box integration. In the meantime, you can talk to an expert about how other Teamcenter clients are using CoLab.


Don’t see the integration or compatibility you’re looking for here? CoLab’s API allows developers to build custom integrations that work with CoLab. Contact us to talk details.

“When interacting with a global engineering and manufacturing organization, it’s critical that we can keep all parties ‘on the same page.’ With CoLab we have that ability to have various functional groups around the world all reviewing and commenting live or around the clock on the same exact model.”
