The purpose of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software is for increased productivity, improved quality of design, and consistent documentation. So, when moving your CAD software to the cloud, it shouldn’t cause hassle for your team and you.
Design without Boundaries
At TetherView, we have found that today’s designers, engineers and architects are typically tethered to the office because traditional cloud solutions cannot accommodate the compute and collaboration requirements needed to process large files. While the cloud and mobility provide the flexibility to operate remotely and on-site, running graphics-intensive CAD applications from the internet offers an underwhelming user experience.
Rise of the Mobile Worker
With a 115% increase in telecommuting over the last 11 years and 43% of the U.S. workforce worked remotely in 2016, there’s no doubt that this is a trend that will continue – especially for design industry professionals that need to complete tasks in the field.
TetherView has successfully addressed the challenges associated with running CAD remotely via the cloud. Our virtual desktops allow users to collaborate on the same file from multiple locations. Design teams can benefit from the platform’s advanced features that will assure their render farms and files are fully secure and compliant.
“TetherView allowed us to expand operations and grow into new territories,” explained Domenick Ciccarelli of thinkDESIGN Architecture, a New York City-based architectural firm running AutoCAD and Revit in TetherView’s private cloud since 2014.
Today the company leverages TetherView to provide its clients with innovative design solutions for projects that result from a highly investigative design process, a studied analysis of traditional and unconventional construction methods, and an ongoing commitment to researching sustainable technologies and resource efficient construction methods.
With TetherView, designing in the cloud is fast and easy. Virtual desktops can be accessed via all types of computers, as well as laptops, tablets and smartphones. Design files and blueprints can even be rendered from a smartphone.
