Great news! GrabCAD Workbench is free.

Today we’re happy to announce that GrabCAD Workbench is now free for all users. Beginning immediately (that means right now), engineering teams of all sizes can share and manage CAD files effortlessly.


Why have we returned to the free model? Simple. We’d like for everyone everywhere to use Workbench. Here’s Hardi:

Our goal with this change is to reach more people. Returning to the free model of Workbench will increase the speed of adoption and support uninhibited product design collaboration. We are excited to supply every engineer with a free solution that enables rapid iteration on design concepts, mobile access to designs, and generally increases the speed and quality of the design process.

Nothing is changing about the product (other than the price tag).  All the features you love - from desktop sync to file locking to easy markups - are still there.  And in case you were wondering about the future, we're still committed to Workbench as the tool of choice for CAD collaboration.  Stay tuned for future enhancements!
