Just how did NURBS come to be? - by Dr. Ken Verspr... - Siemens PLM Community

Just how did NURBS come to be? - by Dr. Ken Verspr... - Siemens PLM Community | MBE Xchange | Scoop.it
[editor]: Sometimes its easy to forget that the fathers of modern CAD walk among us. We use the tools daily, and often fail to give credit to the hand
Phil Spreier's insight:

A really interesting read on the history of NURBS.  I think that if Ken had an easier last name, like Coons, Gordon or Bezier, we would be calling NURBS something different today.  Thanks for this insightful story Ken!

3D PDF software goes geospatial
Spar Point Group
by SPAR Point Group staff | September 16, 2013. Visual Technology Services Ltd.
Phil Spreier's insight:

3D PDF isn't just for mechanical engineering data.  The PDF/E specification also addresses geospatial data.  Visual Technology Services is doing some really good work addressing the needs of geospatial applications with their PDF3D SDK.

Phil Spreier's insight:

Zero client cloud viewing for 3D CAD formats plus 3D PDF output for offline viewing and/or archiving.  This approach could be very popular as organizations migrate their data to the cloud.

Adobe XD's Mighty and Napoleon prepare for retail, Contour and Parallel apps introduced (eyes-on)

Adobe XD's Mighty and Napoleon prepare for retail, Contour and Parallel apps introduced (eyes-on) | MBE Xchange | Scoop.it
As you've likely read today, Adobe XD has announced its plans to officially bring Projects Napoleon and Mighty -- a drafting ruler and cloud-connected
Phil Spreier's insight:

Adobe is "all in" on mobile and is showing it by making their first ever hardware input devices for touch screens.  I find the Napolean ("short ruler") to be a simple, creative device.  I have to think that it could be effectively used for CAD on touch screens as well. Plus, I love the quirky, clever name.

Phil Spreier's insight:

It is great to see Geometric "doubling down" in the MBE market. Anark is one of the key players in 3D PDF and MBE.  Together they have the technical, financial and consulting resources required to service large enterprises transitioning to MBE.
