Tidbits: Cultured Code, Imagination and solidThinking news

Mac and iOS CAD/3D News: We have tidbits on Vectorworks webinars, Cultured Code apps for your studio life and news bits on solidThinking and Imagination’s Caustic Visualizer


Studio Software News: Cultured Code

Cultured Code, of Germany, the award-winning software developers of Things for iPhone, Things for iPad and Things for Mac, have recently released a unified Things 2.0 for iPad, iPhone and Mac. With this important release comes Things Cloud, a new cloud service for free that keeps your Things “data” in the cloud and perfectly synced between all your Things apps on any device.

01 - Things 2.0 with Things Cloud works magic with task management.

This means your To-Dos and notes from Things 2 on the Mac get synced automatically with your Things 2 on iPad or iPhone. And vice versa! At Architosh we have been using Things for quite some time and the new Things Cloud and Things 2.0 works very well. Everything you could want to keep your organized! We’re pretty darn happy with it. We think it makes a great organizing tool and task manager–essentials for effective project management.

Imagination News

At SIGGRAPH 2012 Imagination Technologies announced a ground-breaking Caustic Visualizer™ viewport plugin for Autodesk Maya 2012. Imagination has shown Caustic Visualizer’s highly interactive full-frame performance on the new PowerVR low-power ray tracing hardware reference platform. Caustic Visualizer can deliver an interactive photorealistic viewport experience on a CPU-only desktop that was previously only possible in competitive solutions based on quad-GPU hardware configurations. The Maya plugin is only for Windows.

solidThinking News

solidThinking, Inc., has announced that the company is making progress on solidThinking Inspire 9.0, the higher-end version of solidThinking. Recently the company released solidThinking Evolve 9.0 to much fanfare from its loyal users. Paul Verburg, a solidThinking user remarked: “solidThinking Evolve 9.0 is a breakthrough. This is the best new release since I began using solidThinking in 2002.”

solidThinking Inspired 9.0 will add new computational capabilities to solidThinking’s traditional capabilities centered around its NURBS-based surface and solids modeling with best-in-class Construction Tree technology. Inspired 9.0 will also include the new morphogenesis form generation technology.
