Beyond 3D Podcast: Building Machines in the Cloud

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Jul 2, 2018 10:08:30 AM

If you’ve ever designed a custom piece of tooling or machining equipment, you know that traditionally it takes weeks and weeks from design to delivery.  But now there’s a platform that allows you to design on Monday, order on Tuesday and get the machine delivered on Wednesday. It sounds unbelievable, but it’s the future of machine building, and it’s made possible through the development of 3D CAD in the browser.  Tune in to learn more about Vention from CEO and Co-Founder, Etienne Lacroix.

Beyond 3D Podcast: Simulation and Collaboration in the Cloud

Posted by Tyler Barnes on May 22, 2018 10:19:16 AM

Simulation is something that anyone in manufacturing is familiar with, and in this episode of Beyond 3D we talk with David Heiny, co-founder and CEO of SimScale.  David talks about how simulation in the cloud has evolved, how the cloud has enabled more powerful and rapid simulation, and also where simulation is headed – that it is much more than just the power of the cloud, but how real-time collaboration simulation is now possible, even more accessible and that’s enabling more small and mid-size companies to take advantage of simulation early on in the design process.

Learn and Connect: HOOPS Technical Summit and TEC Talk

Posted by Ron Fritz on Nov 3, 2014 11:33:00 AM

During the first week of October I was in Munich, Germany. As you might expect, there were plenty of highlights. Drinking beer at Oktoberfest was pretty great. Attending a Bayern Munich match with a friend was fun. Working on 2015 planning with my Tech Soft 3D colleagues was fruitful.

Connecting CAD Assets to Business Intelligence in HOOPS Communicator

Posted by Gavin Bridgeman on Nov 18, 2013 9:12:00 AM

Many of you may have read The Lean Start-up by Eric Reis, a book that has become almost a manifesto for many companies, particularly technology companies. Basically, the premise is that you start with an assumption or hypothesis. Next you think about how you can test that hypothesis, then determine what you need to build in order to learn whether you were right (also known as a Minimum Viable Product).

Deciding between WebGL, Mobile Apps, or Server-side Rendering to Deliver 3D Content

Posted by Gavin Bridgeman on Nov 12, 2013 9:00:00 AM

There’s a major shift in 3D as companies move to cloud and mobile solutions. And even though we live and breathe the complicated world of 3D, nobody has a crystal ball. Nevertheless, here are my thoughts about what I see happening with the different approaches and challenges to viewing 3D data on modern platforms.
