ODA Organizes Support for its Ukraine Developers


SCOTTSDALE, AZ, USA, Apr 4, 2022 – Open Design Alliance (ODA), provider of complete interoperability solutions for CAD and BIM, announced an initiative to broaden support for its development team in Ukraine.

“Ukrainian engineers play an important role in developing ODA technologies,” said Neil Peterson, ODA President, “including our interoperability toolkits for DWG and Autodesk Revit files, and many other areas. The situation today in Ukraine is dangerous and unpredictable. We’re supporting our team there with relief and relocation assistance, temporary housing—whatever they need to get through this crisis.”

“Many ODA members have reached out to us with offers of further help,” continued Mr. Peterson. “We’ve created a campaign on fundrazr.com to make it convenient to donate.”
