Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog and National Informatics Centre (NIC) has today together unveiled CollabCAD. This is a joint network, computer-equipped software system, offering a complete engineering solution from 2D drawing & detailing to three-dimensional product configuration.
The goal of this project is to offer a great platform to students of Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs) around the country to make and change 3d patterns with free stream of creativity and originality. Also, this software would allow students to make data around the network and consecutively access the very design data for visualization and storage.
ATLs set up throughout India, offer tinkering field to kids to sharpen their inventive ideas and imagination. AIM’s partnership with NIC’s CollabCAD is a good platform for learners to use natural, state-of-the-art made-in-India software for 3D printing/segmenting to use additive manufacturing.
A tailored account of CollabCAD for ATLs with attributes that are most appropriate to school learners to shape up their ideas and imagination into physical solutions has been developed to enable designing without constraints and, thus, allowing creativity and invention to succeed.
Mission Director Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog Shri R Ramanan during the unveiling CollabCAD online through social media stated that additive manufacturing is going to be an essential component of the modern 21st-century discoveries. He also stated that AIM, NITI Aayog is happy to allow designing via CollabCAD in 5000 Atal Tinkering Labs with more than 2.5 million learners accessing it.
Further, she added this: “I am delighted to announce the launch of yet another important module called CollabCAD design module. It is an amazing software CAD system that would enable students to create innumerable 3d designs. I look forward to students to give freedom to their creativity and imagination and create great innovations using this opportunity while they tinker from home as well as in their ATL labs when the schools open normally.”
In the meantime, NIC taking a crucial role in promoting the online unit to stretch to the learners all through the country by offering a big supply of data via this software CAD mechanism.
While expressing her opinion, Dr. Neeta Verma, the Director-General NIC stated that NIC is pleased to share this model in India 3d item CollabCAD which will be utilized by about 5000 schools where Atal Tinkering Labs are set up.
She said: “It is an indigenous three-dimensional computer-aided design system which helps the user to build models in virtual 3d space and create and engineering drawings for shop floor which makes it a complete package for smart manufacturing. We take great pride in collaborating with AIM, NITI Aayog to launch this opportunity for students.”
Furthermore, in light of the present situation, the ATL application has unveiled a ‘Tinker from Home’ initiative to make sure that the kids around the county access to important easy-to-study online sources to have themselves fruitfully engaged. The goal of ambition is to provide the creativity and imagination of kids by inspiring learning via self-initiation.
