Designers use computer-aided design (CAD) products to create new parts and assemblies. But they also have to struggle with storing, accessing, changing, and sharing the massive amounts of data behind their designs.

More recently, reliable, secure cloud-based CAD systems have provided new approaches to the entire design cycle.
