Share our Prototypes

Maybe we can set-up a post or discussion location where we can share our initial prototypes using the tool. It would be fun to download others tests and see what they created.

Too bad it doesn't have practical import/export formats. As old as IGES is, it's still used extensively in a lot of fields. Also, it's listed as importing STEP files, but read the fine print. You can't edit the imported data.

Too bad they do not provide a linux version.

I'm going to google about this, but: does anyone know how painful is to make it run within a win emulator on linux?

@elctrnx_lyf: This is the one I'm going to try this week. Seems really interesting !!!

As soon as I finish working my way through all the emails in my inbox, I'm going to download and install this software on all of my computers.

@Patrick: Just two more days until we can access the software -- by the time you and I meet up in California a week later, I hope to be able to blow you away with my 3D modelng prowess :-)

If I were a 3D printer company, I'd be chomping at the bit to be in on the Allied/RS/Spaceclaim/Traceparts partnership. This software makes 3D modeling and printing so much more accessible!

It's got some serious intellectual property too. The brains behind it reside at Spaceclaim, which Allied and RS partnered with to bring this to the masses. Spaceclaim's chief technical expert was also the brains behind Solidworks, before he moved on to develop what we have here: A gesture-based interface (look ma! no parametric entry!) that's really intuitive.

The idea of being able to quickly develop the enclosure in parallel with your board/parts to get the optimum design is pretty cool too.

@Caleb: ...it does seem like a great mix of visual interface and mechanical design...

I just received an email from someone I know who says:

Hi Max, I actually know a whole lot about this but I'm under NDA -- here is what I can tell you -- this piece of software is what you want to be using.  This is not a run of the mill 3D mechanical program, but has some serious horsepower behind it.

I haven't tried it yet, but it does seem like a great mix of visual interface and mechanical design.
