My initiation into the design community began more as a content writer than as a design enthusiast. Typical design jargons like renders, 3D modeling and cropping were alien words for me. I guess I never fully understood how these words could become the differentiating factor between a good design and great design. In due course, I learnt my lesson and my respect for designers grew and I also learnt that solidThinking was not just constructive thinking but also a vital tool for designers.
In 2000, solidThinking became the first company to offer industrial designers NURBS-based 3D modeling software for both the OS X and Windows operating systems. User experience has certified that the community just loves them. No wonder they have such humungous support that is driven by the value of the software’s organic surfacing, construction history, and integrated rendering in a single package.
The latest release of the software, solidThinking Evolve 9.5, let’s users work in the most natural and unrestricted fashion yet, enabling faster creation of complex products. Apparently solidThinking Evolve features tools to simplify geometry creation and makes editing more intuitive. Even the unique ConstructionTree history feature is now stronger and more elegantly presented.
solidThinking Evolve offers ongoing support to users on OS X, and the company has also added a new 64-bit Windows version that maximizes efficiency in managing large files.
As an industrial designer, if you wish to develop forms faster, using either a Windows PC or Mac, then Evolve is the one for you. It captures an initial sketch, then allows exploration of styling alternatives and the visualization of products with high quality renderings generated in real time.
It combines the modeling freedom of organic surfaces and the control of parametric solids with a unique ConstructionTree history feature.
Essentially, if you are looking for freedom from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process, then think of Evolve as the tool for you.
solidThinking recently announced the release of solidThinking Inspire® 9.5 and if you want to know more about this software and details about upcoming events, connect with solidThinking through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
