The Future of Design
- Created: Sunday, 01 January 2012
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.
