3D Slash has announced a partnership deal with YouMagine and Sketchfab he says will make 3D modeling accessible and more fun allowing makers and designers to share their creations with different 3D design communities
CEO Sylvain Huet, a French engineer and entrepreneur, has been in on the ground floor of a dozen tech startups and his 3D Slash received the Gold Medal at Concours Lépine, the famous French contest for inventors.
3D Slash is intended to be efficient – and very different from the usual CAD software – in that it can help anyone to create and rework 3D files or 3D scans.
New features of the software include improved ergonomics and contents, a multi-touch screen UX and WebGL functionality which are meant to amp up the mobile 3D Slash experience.
Thanks to 3D Slash’s “1-click synchronization,” designers will be able to demo their work while they create at a local fablab and then transfer a work-session to a desktop PC without limits to customize, publish, and share them. Users will be able to use a universal viewer and publish designs within a minute on Sketchfab.
“Pairing 3DSlash’s easy 3D modeling with Sketchfab’s global sharing makes it easier than ever for anyone to create and share 3D content,” says Alban Denoyel, the CEO of Sketchfab. “We look forward to seeing many more creative designs from this innovative app!”
Huet notes that the partnership makes sense. It streamlines the process and adds desired efficiency to the process.
“We’re both offering hands-on fun & efficient tools to get the public straight into this great 3D industry without any barriers,” he said. “3D modeling, publishing & sharing your 3D designs should always be as simple as this!”
“People tend to still think 3D modeling is difficult,” said YouMagine and its parent Ultimaker’s co-founder, Erik de Bruijn. “3DSlash is an easy and fun software that could let more people make new things, or quickly adjust or tweak any existing design on YouMagine, without even leaving the browser. We’re happy to integrate with 3D Slash especially because it’s such an easy-to-use tool.”
He also says the Edit features embedded in the YouMagine platform allow designers to select any 3D file available on YouMagine, remix it in the 3D Slash web app, and experience a smooth, continuous online experience between the apps.
According to Huet, the YouMagine community is inspiring great designers and makers to create either highly technical parts, beautiful decorative pieces or useful pieces and gives them the “power to make” any time, any where on any device.
