CAD software vendors will tell you that they continue to focus on improving the user experience – and they do tell you that in our annual roundtable of executives from leading software companies.

One of our execs, Paul Sicking, Chief Technology Officer at Siemens PLM Software, explained that the environment to create an effective user experience “must be compatible with innovative devices, and appealing to the new generation of users.”

That new generation of users may be interested in Infinite Z (www.zspace.com), a Mountain View, CA-based firm that enables virtual-holographic 3D imagery to bring designs to life. Their zSpace® platform lets designers and engineers interact with 3D applications just as they would with physical objects.

So the future of design is definitely in 3D, and as our executives explain, it’s also in the cloud and on various mobile devices. What about you? Are you using mobile or cloud applications for design or for sharing design data? Let me know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
