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.
