Many more out of the box add-ons for implementing industry standard use cases are in the pipeline, including visualization with markup and collaboration, drawing-less manufacturing, etc. Glovius is also available as a toolkit along with rich Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for building custom solutions.
Glovius apps for iOS and Android will help users access 3D data on mobile devices. Users can consume and showcase 3D information on their smart phones and tablets. They can interact with 3D models using the intuitive touch interface, view PMI and Product structure, hide/show components, take sections and e-mail snapshots from within the application.
