Program Allows for Real-time Annotation and Co-viewing of 3D CAD Models
Columbia, Maryland (April 10, 2012)—Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. and CadFaster have joined together to offer CadFaster|Collaborate™ for users of Vectorworks® software. This announcement comes on the heels of the launch of Vectorworks Cloud Services, and will further broaden the ability for Vectorworks users to access their design files from any location.
CadFaster|Collaborate for Vectorworks is a powerful collaboration tool available as a plug-in to Vectorworks software. CadFaster|Collaborate provides design and engineering professional teams with the power to distribute their 3D CAD and BIM models effortlessly and to invite others to view and mark them up remotely and in real time, even from a laptop or iPad.
“Vectorworks users will enjoy the simplicity and convenience that CadFaster has to offer them for real-time, cloud-based 3D collaboration,” said Jeremy Powell, director of product marketing at Nemetschek Vectorworks. “We’re very proud to have CadFaster|Collaborate as the most recent addition to our third party partner product portfolio.”
CadFaster|Collaborate compresses the original data so that huge files can be shrunk to a size that can be emailed or downloaded from a link. Users do not need a desktop client to view the exported file; a simple double-click will launch the file, along with its own interface for viewing and annotation. Features such as turntable mode navigation, selection of rotation center, standard views and measurement/markup in section views all contribute to improved productivity and savings of valuable time and money.
“Collaborating closely with Vectorworks to offer our software as a plug-in will benefit many Vectorworks customers,” said Raimo Kuismin, chairman, CadFaster. “CadFaster|Collaborate for Vectorworks brings design and engineering professionals the ease of real-time multiuser collaboration with geographically dispersed teams; reduced engineering costs; increased productivity; and most importantly, the kind of functionality that can really drive revenue.”
CadFaster|Collaborate is available in English worldwide for all users of Vectorworks 2012 software. For more information or to purchase CadFaster for Vectorworks, please visit http://tinyurl.com/7r924nz.
