CyberCAD: Internet Distributed Interactive Collaborative Design
The goal of the Global Design Manufacturing Project (GDM) is to create a design and manufacturing hub in a global environment through the Internet, by sharing design and manufacturing tools among educational institutions and industry.
The CyberCAD software component of GDM has a controller-observer architecture to support reliable point-to-point synchronous portable Collaborative Computer Aided Design (COCAD). It allows geographically dispersed designers to work and communicate together synchronously on 3D design models, regardless of platform.
