Hey, how well does solidworks work with shutter glasses?  I have a set of eDimension shutter glasses that I bought for flight simulator 5 or 6 years ago and but can't get them to work without updating them for use with these new LCD/LED monitors.

Thanks William, we produced an article like that a few years ago. I expect it needs to be dusted off a little so we'll do that and maybe have the chance to post it here in the future. Failing that, it's the kind of content we'd bring to our own blog.

All the best ;-)

Hi John, I design measurement systems and my development process is pretty balanced between hardware, software, sampling, analysis, and automation. I do not design components at a CAD station, but I find your 3D Mouse intriguing, especially from the perspective of the human-machine interface. As Marketing Director, I appreciate that you shared your product from a business-analysis perspective. In the future, I would love to learn more from your design engineers on how they approached the design of your product, what sort of mock-ups / feedback they obtained from potential users, and how your team handles the innovation process of improving your products. How customers use your products is extremely valuable information, but I would be eager to learn more about your design process upstream from the finished product back to the drawing board.  =]

Hi TJ, John Moseley from 3Dconnexion here (writer of the blog post). I appreciate your candid feedback and will take it on board for any future posts. I guess it's too easy to get excited about ones own product line! I'll try to find a better balance in the future ;-)

Best wishes for 2013.

Hi Nadine, thanks for your comment and sorry to hear the article seems more like an ad. I'm from 3Dconnexion (manufacturer of the 3D mice mentioned in the article).

We get excited when companies like MotoCzysz use our products and we like to bring the story to people involved in the design / manufacturing world.

I understand your comments about the productivity and performance statements in the blog post so if you are interested in seeing some proof behind the claims, please take a look at the Economic Payback of 3D mice whitepaper here.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday break and wish you a successful and most of all happy 2013.

       I've been using my wetware to do this with my direct brain interface for 55 yrs now!! Sad how so many must use software to do the same at great cost in time and money. They would be far better off just doing a full size mockup and once right, make molds off it. 

 

         I also doubt their aero has done any good as I do aero EV  MC's for a living and looking at MotoCzysz pics on their website,  I wouldn't use as an example of how good a 3D software was doing that.

Are there any CAD programs that display in true 3D, e.g. Nvidia withshutter glasses?

Concerning the use of 3D input devices, I've tried this type of mouse before and ended up liking them. At first it was uncomfortable, but as I spent more time with them, I found it allowed more functionality than a regular mouse.

NadineJ, you're right. It's an ad, plain and simple, and shouldn't have been called a guest blog.
