Colorway – Immersive Design Management

Real-time Design Editing

Colorway is your digital design assistant, enabling you to visualise, create variations and communicate clearly and quickly with your customers and colleagues, across the entire organization.

Why Colorway

Increased productivity
Avoid the need for designers and developers to go in and out of spreadsheets, specifications and PLM systems
Design efficiency
Automatically populate BOM’s, specifications and material call-outs
Allows non-CAD consumers to view and markup designs
Within minutes, a new user can learn how to rapidly change color and texture on a 2D or 3D model
An intelligent design assistant
For designers who need time to focus on exercising their creative capacity, Colorway intelligently catches data
Create a dynamic link to a 3D or 2D graphic, and image, a folder, another document or even another application so that when something changes, Colorway automatically updates your project for you.
Linked Items
Color one, color all. Colorway’s unique linking ability ensures that every part of the product is updated instantly, regardless of the view that you’ve chosen to display.
Dynamic Content
Adaptive content for text, tables (specs) and palettes (material + color) that update in real time based on the information fed by the creators and their preferences. Live updates are reflected immediately between linked items.
3D – Wrapped Graphics
Graphics and textures are wrapped around the 3D part (called the UV-map) in real-time so the designer can instantly see their 2D graphic on a 3D object.
Dynamic contact sheets
A designer no longer has to create individual thumbnails of each variation in their range. Contact Sheets in Colorway automatically add or subtract thumbnails instantly, without the designer ever having to copy and paste again.
Stored Variations
Refresh and restore any range of color and material combinations. Creators can activate previously saved design mutations, as well as export them as individual tech packs ( while retaining design specifications for retrieval ).

What’s new in Colorway 6.0

Colorway 6.0 enhances creative workflows by introducing more control and creativity to SVG and DCI workflows, allowing designers to rework existing designs and add finer details to projects through our improved Vector Tools and Material capabilities features. We’ve also improved export functionality and enhanced our existing Line Review Tools so designers can easily communicate with their teams.
