Multi-touch to 3D CAD?

July 20th, 2009 by Scott Wertel

Josh Mings over at tweeted about some breaking news based on a youtube video he saw.  Apparently, Spaceclaim is readying multi-touch capabilities for release with their 3D MCAD program.  Spaceclaim currently (at the time of this writing) does not have an official announcement about the news.  We can only guess as to which release this capability will be made public, but hopes are as soon as the next release.

This news is more exciting than when Spaceclaim posted the video combining Spaceclaim with social media.  Solidsmack was again at the forefront of that news.  But, joking aside, this announcement looks real.  Stay tuned for more integration of multi-touch into your MCAD workflows.  For me personally, the sooner the better.

Speaking of Spaceclaim, they are still having their modeling challenge scheduled for July 29.

  1. Might have a look at what we do too. Much more than a viewer – full 3D! While not solving the interoperability/translation issue entirely by embedding the ENTIRE 3D CAD application and object within MS Office – GUI and ALL – files are saved as an excel or word file and shared with many. Our application is file agnostic as a result and can impor/export many, many formats not only CAD but gaming and graphic modeling. Certainly there is always something “lost in translation” but the ability to share and collaborate with many at every stage of the design workflow – even remotly IS now possible. Our huge file compression allows collaboration easily to any desktop with MS Office.
    Imagine the application as part of MS, Outlook email, IE, Win Explorer (P to P, opening any CAD files found on the client with a simple click of the mouse with out the need for translation or thought by the user). Or we embed our application as a ride along with a third party to enhance the larger OEM functionality. With MS Office going to the cloud soon we see this kind of a small but powerful plug in approach both timely and elegant – extending 3D collaboration to millions. Server-side “live” version to follow shortly also.
