“When you start getting manufacturing’s feedback immediately — basically overnight, especially with the China team — that makes a huge difference. We’ve been able to work through things a lot faster because we’ve basically been able to 24/7 review these models.”

Brian McMaster
Mechanical Design Lead at Johnson Controls (JCI)

Design for manufacturability (DFM) shouldn’t be a hassle – or an afterthought. That’s why CoLab makes it easy to share 3D models with production and with suppliers, get their feedback, and implement changes.

Share designs for DFM feedback – way before your design freeze

Ever release a drawing to production only to find out the part isn’t toolable? With CoLab, you can avoid last minute surprises by sharing 3D files with your production team in a simplified interface. Team members that don’t have CAD or PLM won’t have to wait for a 2D drawing any more.

Clearly communicate design intent (without a 6am meeting)

When collaborating across time zones, you can waste days clarifying design intent over email. With CoLab, you can use markup tools to highlight where you need feedback. Then, your production team or suppliers can pin feedback to a 3D model or drawing, so it’s clear and easy to understand.

Get everyone on the same page with 24/7 global design reviews

With interactive reviews in CoLab, global teams can review designs together as though they were all in the same room. Everyone’s feedback shows up in real-time on the same model, so you won’t waste time resolving duplicate or contradictory feedback.

Case Study

JCI’s global engineering and manufacturing org delivers 8 figure cost reduction targets 3 years in a row

“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 can have various functional groups around the world all reviewing and commenting live or around the clock on the same exact model.”
