While it should not be considered a PDM system as in the sense of Enterprise or Workgroup PDM, it does carry beneficial collaborative features that address the unique needs of the design process. These include commenting with files and projects, managing versioning of files, and illustrated dependencies in assemblies. The arrangements of n!Fuze include a one month free trial, with monthly subscriptions available for purchase through the 3DStore. Subscribers can then invite non-subscribers to collaborate for free, and all support will be from a community based forum. Online storage capacity starts at 15GB, with an additional 50GB available for purchase. As advertised n!Fuze looks to be easy to buy, easy to use, and accessible instantly from anywhere! Sales presentations aside however, SolidWorks users are eager to see if this most recent foray into cloud based applications will prove to be a practical and reliable solution to design collaboration.
