CAD & Engineering

PureWeb® Design is a service that provides remote
access to your CAD files, keeping them securely
in your control. Connect with your clients without
distributing your data or models.

 

Offered now via a SaaS solution for Rhino CAD users, where we run the infrastructure and you can subscribe to the service. You can also deploy the service on your own AWS infrastructure.

Keep your files secure and in your control.

Unlike other CAD cloud solutions, files are not uploaded, imported or “locked in”. With PureWeb Design we don’t move or convert your files.

Access to your full model.

With PureWeb Design, your data is rendered by CAD applications running powerful GPUs in the cloud. Graphics are streamed to your device, so no data is downloaded or cached. Your data stays safe, even if you lose your device. This is much more powerful than today’s in-browser WebGL-based viewers, which convert the data, simplify models, lose valuable metadata and only render what is visible.

Integrate with leading cloud storage.

With the SaaS pay-as-you-go service, you can access your files through Box and Dropbox integration. When you deploy PureWeb Design self-managed, your admin can attach AWS S3 buckets to the service so you can browse and open your files. Keep data across your team in sync.

Get access to your permanent meeting room.

With PureWeb Design (SaaS) for RhinoCAD users, your account includes a URL customized the way you want it so you can remember it. This URL can be forwarded to collaborators as a meeting and sharing place. For self-managed users, you can share a collaboration URL that is valid for the session to invite others.

Access your CAD models and invite your team to view simultaneously.

Once connected you and your collaborators share the same view. Interact simultaneously with the same 3D model. Hosts can invite or revoke interaction requests from collaborators.

Mark-up models and capture.

Each collaborator has a distinct acetate color to draw and comment into the model. Capture and download images to save for offline viewing.

Fully interact with your model: Rotate. Pan. Zoom.

Select your model or even parts of it. Zoom in and rotate. Select measurement tools to perform linear, area and volume measurements. Change render modes between wireframe and fully rendered. Even access Rhino commands with your model though the command-line tool (SaaS only).

Pay-as-you-go, or download and deploy on your own cloud.

Organizations can simply subscribe to the Software as a Service (SaaS) model through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace and add users for centralized account management and billing. Customers pay by the hour, for only what they use. It can also be run on instances in your own AWS account by subscribing to the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and deploying it to one or more instances.
