CoLab is a collaborative design review and issue tracking platform for engineering teams and their supply chains. Think Jira + the Pull Request process, but specifically built into 3D models for Mechanical Engineering teams. Our current focus is helping teams shorten design cycles, eliminate painful manual processes and tools (spreadsheets/slideshows) and catch issues before they become expensive changes. In the future we will become the Atlassian for Manufacturing and set the new standard for engineering collaboration.
