    Default Who's using Buzzsaw?

    When Buzzsaw was first being introduced and tested, I was one of the premier members. In those days membership was free. When they later started to charge for the service, I was able to maintain my free membership for several years since I was classified as premier or whatever they labeled us at the time for being "the special first".

    I've always stayed loyal to this product and watched how its continued to mature.

    I know most everyone sees ads everywhere to try Buzzsaw. Have you tried it? Are you using it? What do you think?

    What methods are you using for drawing collaboration? After all, email isn't a viable option anymore. Step right up and tell us your story.

    When I upgraded to 2002 and Inventor 5 i had the option to load the Buzzsaw links on the cpu. I did that but when i tried seeing what it would do one day it told me i needed to register and pay.

    Therefore, I have never used it, probably never will, & personally thought i had heard that it was dead in the water on CNBC. I still e-mail stuff around. I love the dwf & viewer and so do my clients.

    For one or two drawings here and there, email still works fine. For bigger projects that are too big to email, that's more the Buzzsaw focus.

    We started back in 2000 when you could get 25MB for free. We tested it for about one year and then purchased space and implemented Buzzsaw. Everybody is happy as long as people follow the usage procedures.

    Thumbs up Re: Who's using Buzzsaw?

    we have been on a big project for the last 6 months, the site has worked great for us, consultants post their dwg, dwf, pdf, and plt files. it has made plotting the set easy and on time. i really enjoy the "stats", i can see when and who logged in and what they did, it has really help us with consultants accountability.
    we signed a year subscription last month, because of the success we experienced.
    our employees can login at home or on the road and do work - that is good for everyone.
    it is a little $$$ (pricey) but worth it, when all is said and done.

    I work for a Mechanical Contractor and wished the A/E's that we dealt with would use Buzzsaw or something along those lines..

    I have a Company FTP site up for sending files to everyone that we coordinated with but without the architect and engineer on board it's hard to keep everything up to date.

    What is the approximate cost of Buzzsaw? I'm trying to see about trying it out at my company but I'd like to know a cost before I try pitching it to management.

    i would hate to give a price structure, you might have a different sales rep in your area.
    but willing to tell you what we have...my salesman tells me this is standard pricing.
    12 month contract
    500 mb of space
    $ 6000 a year. basically $ 500 a month for 500 mb space.
    i think the more space you buy the cheaper it gets.
    good luck.

    Cool Re: Who's using Buzzsaw?

    My company "flip-flops" between FTP & Buzzsaw.
    Depends whether or not the client will pay the costs.

    To be quite honest "Buzzsaw" is really just a FTP site with HUGE controling features of who gets to see which file & which folder.

    But if that's case then why pay for it when you can just setup multiples FTP sites for little cost. Each site can have it's own password and user name for EACH project.
    I mean if you're all on the same project then why hide specific files & folders.
    There is the honor systems.

    Anyway .. that's my 2 cents.
