Wild West Off Road: Workbench Goes Ultra4 Racing

Dallas Lund and his father, Tim, run Wild West Off Road - a full-service shop that designs, builds, and fabricates parts for off-road racing and OEM vehicles. Tim manages the projects and runs the fabrication shop while Dallas works remotely and handles all of the design work. Remote work, CAD file sharing, and helping teams of engineers get the job done without the hassle of IT overhead and bothering the client with install requests? Sounds like a great Workbench use case to us. We caught up with Dallas last month and asked him what Wild West Off Road is all about and how Workbench makes life a little easier.

Why GrabCAD created a next-generation release process

When you share design information outside your own team, you try to make the exchange with your partners smooth. But we know that's easier said than done - wrong versions get sent, you rely on screenshots, communications get lost and so on. That's why we created a new way for you to collaborate with customers, suppliers and manufacturers.

What’s wrong with using Dropbox to share CAD files?

“I’m just going to send that CAD file with Dropbox.” No! Wait! Stop! There’s a better way! Just because you can’t afford the collaboration features of a PDM or PLM system, doesn’t mean you have to settle for a general file sharing solution. Even if (ESPECIALLY if) you need to share CAD info with someone who doesn’t actually have CAD software, there is now an affordable,  CAD-specific solution for doing so - GrabCAD Workbench.

Let’s look at the differences between sharing CAD with Dropbox and sharing CAD with Workbench.

New Workbench Features And Desktop App Make CAD File Management Easy

More than 15,000 people have signed up for Workbench since we launched it in June.  We’ve heard a lot of stories from people who are using Workbench to share CAD with vendors, with customers and clients, and with non-CAD users in their organization.  For many engineers, Workbench has made it easy to get partners involved in the design process. Today we’re happy to announce that we’re building on this success by adding a broad array of file management features to Workbench to make it easier to keep your design team on the same page.

Fusion 360 Key For Concept Design: An Interview With Aurel Estidial

One of the early adopters of the integration between Workbench and Fusion 360 is Aurel Estidial, creator of Microgeneration Concepts. The objective of Microgeneration Concepts is to design energy conversion systems for small scale power generation. Aurel is a huge advocate of open source projects so the open engineering capabilities of Workbench naturally caught his attention.

Good Gets Better – Now You Can Import Directly From Workbench To Keyshot

Renderers can rejoice, the integration between Luxion KeyShot and GrabCAD is even tighter. This means it’s even easier to share your renderings - whether you’re seeking to show as many people as possible, or just with private project collaborators.

KeyShot GrabCAD Integration

Back in June we told you about how our partnership with Luxion allowed you to publish Keyshot renderings and images directly to the GrabCAD community library or to GrabCAD Workbench. Let’s review the original integration and then check out the even stronger interoperability just released.
