“Perpetually on the verge of a breakthrough.” That might be the phrase that comes to mind when describing the journey of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) towards widespread adoption in industrial settings.
The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming what work looks like and how it gets done in a variety of industries, and manufacturing is no different. Looking at the products and solutions that support manufacturing and some trends that are taking shape around them helps reveal the changes that are already taking place.
These are exciting time at Tech Soft 3D because, well, these are exciting times in our industry.

In our last two blogs, we talked about the specific post-COVID trends that will impact the broader engineering software industry. This time around, we look at how post-COVID trends are likely to shape the way companies work. Once again, these views are a composite of conversations with several dozen business leaders.
In my last blog, I shared the trends I picked up from talking with several dozen of our partners, focusing on the very immediate economic impacts that companies were experiencing and expecting in the very near term.
Tech Soft 3D leadership established a Day of Equality on June 19th across the company, where all employees globally would be given the day off to spend time working for a cause of their choice. Tech Soft 3D has always had a strong culture of inclusion and being cause-conscious, and this day proved to be no different. Below are some examples of how employees spent their time, and how some felt about this initiative and what is happening in our world right now. It turns out there is still much to learn and we should all take the time to research issues of importance to our families and our world, so that we can be the change that makes a difference.
All of us here at Tech Soft 3D care deeply about justice, fairness and equity, all of which are essential to our core value of Building Positive Relationships. We feel compelled to stand up and speak out in defense of these ideals inside our company, within our local communities and around the world. We urge you to join us on our Day for Equality on June 19th.
Every couple of years we come up with a theme here at Tech Soft 3D. We do this to help us focus on something that is particularly important for us to pay special attention to at a point in time as we grow. We do this because it helps us to strengthen some ‘organizational muscles’ that we will be exercising extensively during this next growth phase.
Topics: Our culture
The technology landscape is always evolving, being driven forward and pulled in exciting new directions by underlying macro trends. Right now, the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), mobile, and generative design are some of those trends that are starting to shape the engineering software space.
Software vendors would do well to pay attention to all of these areas: The trends overlap and intersect with one another in interesting ways, and even if some of the trends don’t seem relevant to your business today, that doesn’t mean they won’t be in the very near future.
