3DVIA Featured in Time Magazine

by

Back in May, 3DVIA was featured in Time magazine. The article mainly talked about 3D coming to Web 2.0, and how 3DVIA.com had amassed over 15,000 users who have generated a lot of 3D content. 3DVIA.com offers several free tools to allow consumers the ability to create 3D content and to leverage that content in several ways. In particular:

Eventually, subscribers will be able to use the software to conceive and create their own online games. Already users can build models of the exteriors of their homes or other buildings and place them in real settings on Microsoft’s Virtual Earth.

But that is only the tip of the iceberg… you can use 3DVIA to integrate with Facebook too. And now all that great content on 3DVIA.com can be used in 3DVIA Composer too...

3DVIA your iPod #63: “SolidWorks: Heard!”

by

solidworksheard.JPG

This week I am pleased to bring to you a podcast from solidworksheard.com, a site dedicated to providing tips, tricks, tutorials, or tech news on all things SolidWorks. 

In this episode, Lou Gallo offers his expert opinions and insights after taking a 3DVIA Composer training class. He discusses what the product does and how it fits into the SolidWorks family of products. He explains why 3DVIA Composer is not a “replacement” to existing tools, but is a wonderful compliment to help bridge the gap between CAD tools and documentation layout and publishing tools.

Lou also talks about the other modules of 3DVIA Composer, and highlights some examples and use cases as to when you would need to use them and what value they will bring.

And my favorite part comes at the end of the podcast —...

3DVIA your iPod #55: “3DVIA Composer data sheet

by

This 3DVIA Composer screenshot shows how users can work in 3D and produce all the deliverables they need, including 2D line art…as compared to 2D-based tools like PTC Arbortext IsoDraw

This week, I am putting a new data sheet for 3DVIA Composer into the podcast feed instead of our usual video “vignette”.

I wanted to make sure everyone has an opportunity to see it, as it contains the first screenshots we have published with the 3DVIA Composer UI. Past PDFs we have put into the podcast feed have been extremely popular.

The blog and podcast will return in early 2008. Until then, everyone at 3DVIA wishes you and yours a happy holiday season.

The November 8, 2007 edition of Machine Design magazine has a very interesting article on XML and CAD.  Leslie Gordon takes a look at the importance of XML as a data store, and more importantly, when discussing Seemage, notes the benefits of an XML-based architecture in delivering information to non-technical desktop users.

You can view the article at here. Leslie’s article begins on page 74.

Seemage your iPod #51: “Cleo success story” (English)

by

Cléo logo

Today’s podcast episode is a little different. Instead of focusing on Seemage features, we are presenting a sales success story in both French and English.

To get this breaking story, Garth Coleman interviewed Fabrice of Axemble in France via Skype, one of the EU’s largest SolidWorks resellers. As you will hear, Fabrice tells the amazing story of how an important customer was so excited about Seemage, they purchased it on the first sales call.

Now I realize some of you may think this is pure propaganda. (Though when, I ask you, was the last time a PLM company posted such an authentic, unedited story? When we said we were going to continue to using the blog to be completely open about Seemage after our acquisition, we meant it.)

But in reality, this is a story about compelling technology…t...

A user’s perspective on Seemage

by

Seemage is used to document Hyster forklifts

We are very pleased to post here an unabridged version of the article Gordon Benson of NACCO Materials wrote for Machine Design magazine.

As you read Gordon’s paper, we hope you will agree that the issues and challenges Gordon describes are universal no matter what CAD and/or PLM system your company uses, and that his approach to solving those problems in his company is applicable to your company as well.

Gordon places special emphasis on the ROI of better product documentation, something we believe is more and more evident inside manufacturing companies today. It’s the kind of thing you might expect software vendors to talk about. But it’s so much more authentic reading Gordon’s perspective than simply hearing it from us.

We want to thank Gordon for allowing us to post the original...
