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.
When Tech Soft 3D first started reselling Autodesk platforms back in 2010, we knew the concept of rapid development platforms seemed like a good idea on paper. Importantly, these OEM products perfectly suited a particular type of development team: companies that wanted to make full-scale stand-alone options that extend the value of their Autodesk plug-ins based on a trusted, well-developed platform. The promise of OEM development is that it would enable ISV’s to reach more end users through cost-effective pricing and specialized functionality.
Component providers like Tech Soft 3D are typically behind the scenes, working hard to provide stable platform technologies to help our customers build successful software applications. Our job is more to be the workhorse of the industry, leaving the limelight to our customers. Rarely, if ever, do we see our work highlighted on the main stage.
We were blown away by the many great people we connected with in our stand. It was the first time Tech Soft 3D exhibited, and it was a great success. There was plenty of interest in HOOPS Exchange, HOOPS Publish -- and 3D PDF as well. Despite being held in the heart of the German engineering sector, we had visitors from all over the world – Québec, the United States, France, Spain, Lithuania and Japan.
This latest batch was the result of much trial and error, substitutions and adjustments, but we think he has it just right…
