Installation and Upgrade Hassles

Downloading and installing gigabytes of CAD applications takes forever. Then comes the 24-digit registration code! Want to install service packs and yearly updates? You’ll need to block off a half day each time. Need PDM? You better call IT.

Limited Access to Your CAD System

Desktop CAD runs on only the computers where it is installed and licensed on. CAD files are often saved locally, then are not accessible from other computers. Copies of files cause confusion and redundant work, wasting valuable time.

working with Copies

It’s impossible to work as a team using desktop CAD without making copies of files. Copies to the server for your co-workers. Copies shared by email or Dropbox™ to work with customers and suppliers. It’s painful, costly, confusing and inefficient.

PDM as an Afterthought

The dirty secret of desktop CAD is that it creates a lot of files. Eventually, you'll need to add an expensive PDM system. Costs increase, more IT support is needed, and the likelihood of you using the latest software diminishes.
