Thanks to everyone who responded to the survey. The combined results reveal no big surprises but still give us good information on our early user base. For example only 11% of you do not have access to some kind of 3D printer.
One of our key developers from Australia came to Norway for an extreme MeshUP work session last week, in order to facilitate speeding up development so we can get the preview out. It was an intensive 9 day session: we ran across some issues, but the close quarters allowed for innovative solutions to be proposed. The latest build is in QA which features improvements to visualization and overall speed optimizations, and it will be in the hands of all those who have subscribed soon.
I want to publicly commend our MeshUP developers, who continue to overcome each hurdle we hit with creativity and enthusiasm. As a company with core technology developed to bypass meshes and all its inherent issues, with MeshUP we dove head first into the pool of polygonalization. Even a simple product like MeshUP requires a significant amount of backend sophistication. Yes, we are progressing slowly, but surely, solving some very tricky problems along the way. As usual, we appreciate everyone's patience and support!
Uformia will be exhibiting at the 3D Printshow London again this year, this time with Fuel3D: 7 - 9 November.
We have an exciting surprise in place involving Joshua Harker, Fuel3D and Uformia....
Get your tickets now, sign up for our workshops, and don't forget to stop by our stand and say hi!
FRIDAY 8 NOVEMBER
--> 1:15 pm - 1:45 pm Remix Your World w/ Fuel3D & Uformia
It has never been easier for creators of all skills levels to make their own 3D designs. Fuel3D's low cost, high quality, point and shoot scanner combined with MeshUP, a super simple to use 3D mashup/modeling tool, re-imagine 3D design processes and bring professional quality, affordable, and, most importantly, easy to use tools to everyone.
Join Chris (Fuel3D) and Cherie (Uformia) to hear the story of Fuel3D and how they are taking their medical scanner into the 3D commercial space, and how Uformia's geometric kernel is making it possible to create tools ranging from MeshUP to biological design tools. Watch a live demonstration using the Fuel3D scanner to scan a face, and using MeshUP to combine this scan with Joshua Harker's gorgeous filigree pattern to create a personalized or 'Harkerized' face mask within minutes!
SATURDAY 9 NOVEMBER
--> 12:00pm - 12:45pm Harkerize Me!
Join Joshua Harker, Chris (Fuel3D) and Cherie (Uformia) to watch a live demonstration using the Fuel3D scanner to scan a face, and using MeshUP to combine this scan with Joshua Harker's gorgeous filigree pattern to create a personalized or 'Harkerized' face mask within minutes!
--> TBA - Design at the Bottom: the Future of Design
Turlif from Uformia will give a glimpse into the future of design tools, as they must quickly evolve to match the coming manufacturing capabilities.
Be very very quiet, we are hunting algorithms
Last week we received our first snowfall, which uncharacteristically is sticking around! The view from the office window:
We thought you might enjoy a peak into the MeshUP development session from last week:
