In today's fast-paced design environment, businesses face significant hurdles in collaborative CAD file editing. The lack of real-time access, inefficient file synchronization, and the absence of a global file locking mechanism often lead to overwritten work and project delays. These challenges not only hamper productivity but also compromise the integrity of collaborative efforts across different locations.

Real-Time Access

The absence of simultaneous access to CAD files results in bottlenecks, hindering the flow of collaborative work and innovation.

File Synchronization

Inadequate file syncing mechanisms lead to version control nightmares, forcing teams to redo work and causing significant project delays.

Global File Locking

Without global file locking, the risk of overwriting each other's work is high, leading to frustration and wasted effort among team members.

Cross-Location Collaboration

The challenge of seamless collaboration across different locations remains, with existing solutions failing to provide a unified, efficient workflow.
