3D Content Creation Made Easier With 3DVIA Shape 2.0

CONCORD, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 14, 2008— Dassault Systèmes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY, Euronext Paris: #13065. DSY. PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced 3DVIA Shape 2.0, the latest release of its free 3D modeling software featuring an all new and expanded 3D remix capability. This latest update will make creating and publishing online 3D content amazingly easy by allowing users to construct or remix complete 3D scenes using models contributed by other users on the 3DVIA.com content library.

The new 3D remix functionality is accessed through a search panel within the product. Users simply enter a search term, select a model from the results and insert the model they need into their projects. With a few clicks of a mouse, users can create complete 3D models of just about anything and publish them online. For example, a user could build a 3D model of her house and accessorize it with furniture, cars and many of the models posted by the more than 45,000 registered users of the site.

The new 3DVIA Shape further extends 3D content creation to a whole new set of users and provides a new outlet for our existing 3D artists to share their work, said Lynne Wilson, senior vice president and general manager, 3DVIA, Dassault Systèmes. The new 3D remix capability not only makes 3D publishing easier, but also more fun. Were excited to see what our user community will create.

The free 3D modeling software is available immediately and can be downloaded at www.3DVIA.com/shapeit. With the addition of the new 3D remix feature, 3DVIA Shape 2.0 will now provide three main areas of functionality.

  • Shape: Simple, but powerful 3D modeling technology designed to be easy enough for anyone to quickly express ideas in 3D;
  • Remix: Edit and modify Shape models published by other users, or skip right to constructing complete 3D scenes with models posted by the 3DVIA community; and
  • Publish: Users can publish and share their work directly through 3DVIA.com and on their blogs, profiles or most Web pages through the embeddable 3DVIA interactive player.

Additional features of this release include upgrades to the user interface, video tutorials and other design and performance enhancements based on feedback from the fast-growing 3DVIA.com community.
