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.
