QuadriSpace announced the immediate availability of Share3D, a new cloud-based distribution and collaboration service with native apps for iPad, iPhone and PC users.
Access to QuadriSpace Publisher3D, a 3D content creation software, is included as part of each Share3D user account so additional software purchases are not required. SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, Pro/E, Rhino, Google SketchUp, DWF, STEP, IGES and other exchange formats are supported.
During collaborations, the specific model view and newly created markups are associated with a comment to enhance collaboration and team understanding, the company says. Submitted comments are captured in the cloud, shared with other participants and archived for future reference. Recalling a comment with one of the Share3D apps sets the 3D view to the viewpoint and applies the markups present when the comment was submitted.
The e-mail-in-the-loop feature provides the ability for participants that are not using the Share3D Web page or apps to engage in a collaborative session by replying to automatically generated e-mails.
Share3D is hosted on Amazon's secure network, where user files are encrypted using the AES-256 standard. Lightweight 3D content is shared privately and can only be viewed by those specifically invited to participate in a project.
The company offers a free plan that allows users to collaborate on up to three projects. Paid plans enable more projects, more collaboration tools and more content creation features.
