Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Turn Your Designs Into Reality In Record Time


Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) teams typically collaborate remotely on projects. In some cases, collaboration distances can span the globe. When working on projects of this size and scope, professionals depend on digital file transfer processes to share information, manage project task items, and communicate with one another effectively.

Send CAD Files Faster


3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) files are generally very large, which can make them difficult to move between stakeholders, on-site staff, and offices around the world. And they’re only growing in size; the  increased in demand for these CAD project files to include more elements and details has caused the file size to skyrocket. This constant growth is challenging the ability to quickly share and distribute critical information needed to meet project deadlines.

How FileCatalyst Helps AEC File Transfers


FileCatalyst’s software solutions accelerate, simplify, and secure file transfers so AEC teams can quickly and easily share large project files and other data sets – regardless of location. Use FileCatalyst to take your project from a CAD dream to a reality.

Use Cases: How FileCatalyst Helps AEC

Project Management & Access

When working on AEC projects, large numbers of organizations, all with vastly different roles, come together to work towards finishing the structure, infrastructure, or whatever the finished goal may be. Without help, it can become very difficult to manage plans, blueprints, AutoCAD, 3ds Max files, and all their various versions.

With FileCatalyst, not only do you get multi-gigabit transfer speeds for your project, but you can also use FileCatalyst as a central storage location for one or more “web folders” – keeping all your files organized, managed, and accessible to all of the team members, from anywhere.


When it comes to  AEC, team members working on the project may be many miles away from the actual site, and the rest of their team may be dispersed across the world. When using traditional file transfer methods that leverage the FTP/TCP protocols, packet loss and other forms of latency can have detrimental effects on transfer speeds.

No matter where your design files are travelling to or what files you need to receive, FileCatalyst Direct provides your project with transfer speeds that will move files at unprecedented speeds, up to 10 Gbps. FileCatalyst Direct also provides client applications that sync data across all of your organization’s endpoints.
