Let Non-CAD Users View and Access Files
If you need to share CAD files with people outside of engineering the options aren’t that great. You could buy more CAD licenses and train people, but it’s expensive and time consuming. You could use a free CAD viewer, but you run the risk of losing quality and accuracy and add IT overhead to install and maintain multiple viewers. You could convert everything to neutral formats like PDF, but that takes time and adds yet a second copy of a document to manage. Probably the worst case scenario is to use hard copies of CAD files and redline them—an option you’d probably like to avoid.
Adept provides a built-in view, markup and compare capabilities. Its built-in Oracle AutoVue visualization tool extends engineering design documents to all enterprise users. There’s no need to buy additional CAD seats. It views hundreds of formats from CAD, Office, raster graphics, and fully functional, high quality viewing of 2D and 3D files. It also improves global collaboration. A viewer is an essential tool that uses native file viewing to eliminate file conversion errors. What would it mean for you and your bottom line to have everyone on the same page collaborating creatively and productively without the major expense of additional CAD licenses?
The typical enterprise with 1,000 knowledge workers wastes $2.5 million to $3.5 million per year searching for nonexistent information, failing to find existing information, or recreating information that can't be found.
