"Without question, ModelPress has received a warm welcome from the 3D community because its compression is unrivaled and usability is very good," said Gary Heath, President and CEO at IGC. "We've seen healthy corporate interest as well, which indicates to us that ModelPress is moving into the mainstream of 3D viewing options.

ModelPress' breakthrough compression technology reduces models' sizes by 70 - 98%, making sharing 3D data online not only possible, but also very practical. ModelPress provides a highly efficient way to share 3D CAD model content with users who don't have access to expensive, complex 3D applications while protecting the intellectual property contained in the design file.
