Sunglass is a cloud-based CAD and 3D design tool. Sunglass offers users tools for collaboration with other users for designing and building 3D objects.
The Sunglass API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Sunglass with other applications. Public documentation is not available; interested developers should sign up here: http://www.sunglass.io/demo/apiaccess.html
CAD tools have assisted architects and engineers in product development for decades. Despite their widespread adoption and usefulness, two aspects of CAD tools remain pretty consistent across the CAD landscape: high costs and proprietary software. Sunglass aims to alleviate both pains of traditional CAD tools through the Sunglass API. Sunglass co-founder and CEO, Kaustuv DeBiswas, asserts: "We don't want to compete on a feature-by-feature basis" with traditional CAD tools. Rather, the Sunglass API constitutes a collaboration tool that serves "as the bridge for sharing 3D product design data and for managing version control for engineers and colleagues working across different systems."
