CadFaster ( says its CadFaster|Collaborate online software tool for the real-time annotation and co-viewing of 3D CAD models is being demonstrated on both the iPad and iPhone at SolidWorks World 2011.

CadFaster|Collaborate is the first online solution to be able to render large 3D models on a mobile operating system with full details and components in real-time, according to Raimo Kuismin, chairman, CadFaster. It was specifically developed to dramatically increase collaboration, productivity and effectiveness for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), mechanical and plant design firms seeking the fast reading and smooth handling of complex and large CAD data files, he adds.

The tool allows distribution, annotation, and real-time co-viewing of diverse 3D designs using portable executable files that include CadFaster’s 3D engine. Annotations can be reviewed during the co-viewing session using pre-defined views.

Immediately available for both SolidWorks and Autodesk Revit CAD platforms, CadFaster|Collaborate will be released for all major CAD platforms within the next 12 months.
