Mac CAD and 3D News: We have tidibits on Maxon, solidThinking’s parent Altair and FileMaker


MAXON Partners with IM Innovations in Singapore

MAXON Computer GmbH, Germany, the makers of Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D, intends to expand its presence in Singapore and ASEAN countries by establishing a new MAXON ASEAN Competence Centre.

MAXON co-founder and CEO Harald Egel explains: “Five years ago, we established the only ASEAN Authorised Training Centre (ATC) for CINEMA 4D in collaboration with IM Innovations and Temasek Polytechnic. We have examined the ASEAN market closely and have seen it grow steadily. Now is the perfect time to set up a Competence Centre in Singapore, the natural gateway to ASEAN countries.”

MAXON’s move in Singapore further strengthens their ability to serve the creative 3D markets with its award-winning Cinema 4D and BodyPaint 3D software. To learn more about IM Innovations visit here.

FileMaker News

FileMaker looks to be pushing hard on getting FileMaker Pro 11 onto Macs and Windows machines. The company currently has an aggressive and attractive offer. For a limited time only if you buy FileMaker Go you are able to then get FileMaker Pro 11 for half the price.

FileMaker Go is one way creative technical professionals like architects can take their business data with them on the go. Using an iPhone or iPad you can use FileMaker Go to connect to database files hosted on FileMaker Server and access your records. Modifications made within FileMaker Go are automatically made on the host machine, which would be the machine running back at the office running FileMaker Server.

For single-user applications you can also copy your FileMaker Pro files to your iPad or iPhone via iTunes. To learn more visit them here.
