"Interoperability"

Will cloud CAD inherit data interoperability problem?

Will cloud CAD inherit data interoperability problem?

Cloud and CAD are probably getting to the point where it starts become a real thing. Autodesk Fusion360, Onshape, SolidWork Industrial design. It is likely to absorb some PDM functionality to make collaboration, branching, revisions and other data management tasks easier. Cloud CAD means no files, so engineers have nothing…
