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.
