Most of us have worked on projects with other people and have had to communicate with teammates regarding design issues. Usually it's via email, a phone call or a shout down the hall. With all these methods of "Collaborating," it can be hard to keep track of how and why certain decisions were made, or even what the decisions were sometimes.
In To3D we added a discussion window that lets project members have discussions "In" the design. These notes are maintained with the design and can be associated to geometry, dimensions, views and pretty much any object in a design. The discussions can be almost in real time, since everyone working on a design is working from a common database in the Cloud.
The example below provides a very simple interactive demonstration of the discussion capability in To3D. To start the interactive demonstration select this link or click the image below.
Note: A browser that supports WebGL like Chrome or Firefox must be used for the demonstration to work.
