GrabCAD is an online collaborative community of engineers and partners who design physical products, and GrabCAD Workbench is a cloud service for sharing and collaborating with others around individual CAD projects. Today, a fresh Android app makes it possible to access over 200,000 CAD models that have been shared through this community from the field.

GrabCAD lets users view CAD models in full 3D regardless of the format they were created in. Users can also use the free app to communicate with other collaborators and upload photos to a GradCAD workbench project. In addition to CAD models, people can share images, sketches, and PDFs with the added perk of getting instant feedback from others. The benefit from such a tool is that teams no longer have to schedule weekly meetings to view and discuss ongoing projects. The conversation can persist whenever, wherever. Welcome to 2013.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    I'm still waiting for a really good modeling program to come to Android. There a pretty full featured one called Spacedraw, but the UI is rather confusing.
