Increasing Structural Stability with solidThinking Inspire

Increasing Structural Stability with solidThinking Inspire

It warms our core when we come across some inspiring case studies. Just like this one that solidThinking shared with us, involving their ‘Inspire’ software and Columbia University’s Studio-X and Tokyo DIGITAL STUDIO. The project (a pavilion) was collaboration between the two and showcased at the Tokyo Designers Week 2013 and 2014. The structural optimization software helped generate a buildable complex shape that increased the stability performance of the pavilion.

The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

To talk the talk is easy, but to walk the talk is a different ball game. What I mean is that most software companies simply leverage big words to deliver their speech but little else to validate their claims. However with solidThinking you are assured that they deliver what the promise. For example, with the solidThinking Inspire, they promise to offer a common visual language for engineering and ID.

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

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.

Designers, you have my immense respect for your talents in rendering your ideas. This is one area that I fall short and therefore happy to learn that the KeyShot 4 doesn’t require any specialized expertise. The program has 6 main buttons rather than hundreds of parameters, options, sliders, and adjustments found in traditional rendering programs. It is the perfect tool for anyone involved with 3D data: industrial designers, mechanical engineers, marketing professionals, photographers, CG experts – you name it. The only limitation is our creativity!
