VCollab: Democratizing Simulation Visualization?
Conducting engineering simulations in today’s business environment can be challenging. Executives often give a begrudging approval to simulation teams to do their work. But its infrequent that those simulation teams are able to expose their work to the broader enterprise. There has been trends more recently, however, to expose simulation results in new and exciting ways that are more accessible …

Leveraging 3D CAD Data
Have you ever read Evan Yares' stuff? If not, you're missing out. He's a really smart dude covering this space. Evan and I got to catch up at the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress, where I presented findings from the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Study. A couple weeks ago, Evan wrote up his own analysis of the findings in a post titled Leveraging 3D CAD Data. And he didn't just regurgitate statistics. He provided some pretty deep analysis. And it's good.
In todays product-development environments, 3D models play an important role in design as well as the overall development process — there’s little doubt about that. But how far have we really come in the adoption and use of 3D data for product development?
