In June Develop 3D magazine was targeted and launched at informing readers about the tools and processes surrounding product development. As you would expect each monthly issue has software reviews for a wide spectrum of the design process including, modeling, analyzing, rendering, rapid prototyping and colaboration. Of course you’ll also find hardware information for things such as workstations, motion controllers, input devices, scanners and printers. What you may not expect and one of the features I like the best are articles covering succesful companies and products like Lego and KTM. I’ve read every issue since day one and I’d say Develop 3D scores a direct hit.
The October issue (available now) will be of interest to SolidWorks users trying to render their models using PhotoWorks or PhotoView 360. I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to write an article sharing some tips on creating better images using PhotoWorks. Al Dean, Editor of Develop 3D, gives his review of PhotoView 360. If you’re rendering your CAD models using these SolidWorks provided tools you’ll want to have a look. Sign up for you’re free copy.
