Manage all your project files in one secure location

  • Synchronize desktop files to the cloud project so you always have the latest Download Workbench Desktop App
  • Lock files while you're working to prevent others from overwriting your changes
  • From inside your CAD system, access common PDM capabilities like "get latest" and "lock" (starting with SolidWorks®)
  • Translate any CAD file from proprietary format to neutral format for easier sharing

"File management gives our internal engineering team and external collaborators the ability to sync desktop files directly to our Workbench projects, while ensuring that nobody is working on outdated files."

Key benefit: Keeps the team from overwriting each other's work

Industrial Designer

Share any CAD file with a few clicks, no more screenshots or emails

  • Share large CAD files safely inside or outside the firewall
  • Ensure security with control over who can see and download files
  • Partner Spaces let you easily share product data with customers and manufacturers without them seeing all of your secrets -- or each other.

"We have been using Workbench to communicate detailed and accurate design iterations with our customers... which makes the entire process much smoother."

Key benefit: Improves speed and quality of feedback

Tony Slavik
Prototype studio manager

View CAD models without an expensive CAD license

  • Viewer supports all major CAD formats as well as other file types
  • Markup and communication tools allow users to sketch right on the 3D model
  • Works on all browsers as well as Android and iOS mobile devices

"Workbench is so easy to use that many non-technical or non-CAD personnel can participate in the design and design transfer process without an expensive seat of CAD or extensive training"

Key benefit: Securely share CAD files without expensive licenses
