Lightweight Multi-user CAD for Mobile Devices and the Web

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Enabling Information Infrastructure

Research team: Tim Bright, Greg Jensen

A lightweight Web or mobile app interface to CAD would allow all parts of the design process the ability to access the model data that defines the geometry for a product. The ubiquitous access of “CAD- on-the-go” leads to more opportunity for collaboration by removing hardware and software barriers that inhibit collaboration. This can potentially reduce design time by reducing costly design changes, rework, and remodeling over the course of the design process.
