At a loss for words? Not a problem with sketches in the 3D Viewer!

When we announced our 3D Viewer a few months ago, we were excited to introduce a new way to collaborate with other engineers. Now we bring you the next evolution of our 3D Viewing Experience - sketches.

The Power of Pins, Comments, and Sketches

You already use pins in our 3D viewer to communicate right on the geometry. While comments are great, there are some things words cannot fully express especially when dealing with 3D models.

Ever have problems describing your suggestions for a CAD project? Instead of sending written descriptions to your collaborators, sketches allow you to show your collaborators exactly what you mean. The great thing about pins is you can can point to exactly where in the geometry you are talking about. Comments and sketches in pins put the conversation in one place, making it easier to collaborate than ever before.

Have an idea for making a model look better? Draw it right on the model.
