    PTC’s IoT & PLM technology Leading the Pack – awarded “Leader” status across successive independent reports

    Here at LEAP Australia, we already know how good the IoT and PLM tools from PTC are - Thingworx and Windchill - after all, we work with them every day! But how do they stack up when reviewed by completely independent third-party researchers such as Gartner, Forrester and ABI Research?   Well we’ve put together a compilation of the most recent independent assessments of IoT platforms and PLM that have been completed in the last 12 months - in each case, the criteria was wide ranging including objective measures such as: - capabilities of vendor’s current technology - installed customer base using their technology worldwide - completeness of roadmap / vision, and - ability to execute. In each report, PTC’s IoT and PLM technology emerged...

    Introducing KeyShot 6

    KeyShot is the fastest and easiest to use 3D CAD renderer available. With industry leading render speed, Keyshot is several times faster than most native render engines of CAD software and other 3D rendering software on the market. Unlike most other 3D renderers, Keyshot does not have a steep learning curve allowing CAD users to become proficient in Keyshot after only a couple of hours learning. The rendered models below speak for themselves… “KeyShot allows for the quickest exploration of CMF (colors, materials, and finishes) which can help determine if the design’s shape, movement, shadows and highlights, are complimentary to the CMF.” For more information, see “Igor Sobolevsky and Keyshot”. “KeyShot is simple to deploy and use on non-standard products, a user-friendly software that is...
