Share CAD files with anyone

CoLab makes it easy to share designs with anyone via your web browser, regardless of where you store your design files.

Create Workspaces for projects and products

In CoLab, Workspaces are used to store and organize design files for your team to review. Inviting your team to a Workspace is simple: just enter their email addresses and send Workspace invitations. They'll receive your invitation in-app and via email.


Use Portals for external reviews

Review designs with external partners (such as suppliers, customers, or manufacturers) using Portals. With Portals, share one set of files with multiple external parties. Users in different Portals can’t see each other’s feedback, while your internal team sees everything in one place.

Share files from your PLM or desktop

Getting design data into CoLab is straightforward and uncomplicated. Share directly from your PLM system using one of our integrations, or upload files directly from your desktop.

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.
