Industry: Architecture, Engineering and Construction
CadFaster|Collaborate for Vectorworks® enables real-time markup and co-viewing of Building Information Models and thus facilitates collaboration. CadFaster|Collaborate for Vectorworks® is designed to enhance the design process in the AEC industry and to improve customer experience.
The architectural design process of a building or a site abroad requires constant interaction with various stakeholders. If the architectural design is done in one country, but the customer is in another, there is no practical way to co-view the Building Information Models, which translates to frequent traveling.
CadFaster|Collaborate enables real-time feedback collection, co-viewing and collaboration. With CadFaster|Collaborate every stakeholder is able to participate in the design process enabling customer reviews and real-time feedback. Possible design flaws can be eliminated during the design process making sure that the customer specific needs and requirements are fully met.
- Design flaws and issues related to communication breakdown are reduced.
- Increased productivity decreases the design period.
- Travel expenses are reduced substantially.
- Customer satisfaction is increased.

CadFaster speeds up BIM conversations
"A drawback with most construction collaboration platform is that they mainly offer asynchronous collaboration – ie: dispersed “conversations” proceed like email exchanges, as a series of send-reply steps. Ideally, collaboration should be about real-time or synchronous exchanges with little or no time lag between individuals’ comments and recipients’ responses. Now on its fourth release, CadFaster|Collaborate enables exactly this kind of real-time (synchronous) collaboration regarding 3D designs developed in BIM, CAD and related applications."

CadFaster|Collaborate for Autodesk Revit 2011
"Over the years, the design process has changed with the introduction of new technologies, bringing about shorter design cycles, reduced fees, and demands for greater productivity. What hasn't changed is the need for distributed teams to collaborate with each other and their various project stakeholders."

CADFaster. The Faster Way to Collaborate on SolidWorks and Revit Models.
"You are able to open a large data set, walkthrough, measure, and create section of the environment. All of this happens as you share the experience across the web – discussing, commenting and changing visual properties of the model as you walk about. It is nothing but impressive."
“With CadFaster’s Collaborate tool, you can review your Revit models in a genuinely live environment with multiple participants anywhere in the world. The question now is; what do we need drawings for?”
Carl Collins, CAD Manager, Arup Associates.
