For sure Automotive Industry would be its main user , followed by fashion and apparel industry.

We also foresee product based companies using it for ideation and concept development.

May be artists too would like to make digital potraits ;)

Thanks for the explanation mechanicalabhinav. So from an engineering perspective, would certain industries be bigger users of this? If so, what industries would they be?

@ beth :

Full integration represents the seamless flow of a idea to a mass produced product,

for example, in DS PLM, it can be outlined as below

CATIA natural sketch / imagin and shape - design ideation and conceptualization

CATIA Part/surface/drafting/sheet metal - 3D / 2D design and actual design engineering & validation

SIMULIA - simulation and physical validation { imagine crash test }

DELMIA - production

ENOVIA - interconnecting all of the above ( the PLM, like teamCantre)

So, If you are sketching a spoiler or grab rail , you can actually have it manufactured, without any issue in terms of data transfer and actual engineering validation as everything is inter related and under 1 roof every body , right from industrial designer > marketing > engineer > production can be in resonance.

hope it helps.

Thank you,

Abhinav

@mechanicalabhinav: Sounds like you're an early user of Natural Sketch, so thanks for wading in with your comments. Can you give us some perspective on what you think full integration presents for the typical design workflow?

Hi Rob,

The main difeerence is natural sketch's generic integration with DS PLM, right frm ideation > concept dev. > design > validation > product realisation everything is tightly integrated and the transition is seamless.
I have used it on PC, yet to test it on centiq or othr drawing tablets

Whether targeted at engineers or not, engineers will find ways to use it.

Thanks Beth for the confirmation that this *is* a trend. Concurrency of similar-appearing phenomena doesn't always mean they are related phenomena. In this case, sounds like they are.

Ann: I think you're definitely on to something. All of the vendors specializing in 3D technologies that I cover (3D design software, 3D printers) have been talking about this "democratization" of 3D technology for years. Led by the popularization of consumer technologies like 3D TV and 3D gaming, I think we may finally be starting to see their predictions coming to fruition.

Beth, your comment that 3D representations may be becoming the default is interesting in light of other 3D technology in our industry, for example: 3D models, prototypes and now direct manufacturing in very low volumes, and 3D machine vision. Meanwhile, over in consumer-land, interest in 3D movies and video appears to be growing, if not nearly as fast as studios and other commercial interests would like.
