mydeco – Cool 3D Floor Planner Tool

June 15, 2008


3Dwalkthroughs.com is often asked if we know of any easy to use 3D Floor Plan tools that allow users to move the furniture around themselves. Up until now we only knew of one company that was offering such a tool. Well, we just came across a company based in Victoria England that is about to heat things up a bit.

The company called mydeco and was founded in February 2007 by Brent Hoberman. Brent co-founded lastminute.com with Martha Lane Fox in 1998.

The software is interesting as it does not require any download to utilize. mydeco is definitely worth checking out as it is very easy to use and the 3D results are the best we’ve seen with this type of software.

Fitspott.com Friday Update (June 13th 2008)

June 13, 2008


Today ends a monumnetal week for 3Dwalkthroughs.com and the rest of the fitspott team. We have finalized all design elements of the site and have set a tentative launch date for September 1st. Our initial launch will include releasing a password protected version to those who signed up for the free beta launch of the site.

In addition to finalizing the design elements for our launch, we also began doing the legwork on our latest initiative…the Fitspott Apple App. Without giving away too many details of our planned application, we can only say that it will allow any one with a new iPhone to interact with many of the features of the Fitspott site. This includes the ability to search for trainers, health clubs and more from anywhere.

As the entire application is being architected to work seamlessly with our web based Fitspott platform, we are giving our best effort to try and launch our Apple App simultaneous with the launch of the rest of the site.

Modaris 3D Fit – Using 3D Technology To Improve The Efficiency in Clothing Design

June 12, 2008


Several months ago 3Dwalkthroughs.com posted months ago about a company that is using 3D techology to improve efficiency within the fashion industry. The technology developed by a French company, Lectra, is called Modaris 3D Fit. Recently Lectra announced a significant upgrade to their product which they claim makes their product the highest performance virtual 3D prototyping solution on the market.

About Modaris 3D Fit

Modaris 3D Fit is a significant advance in CAD technology. By allowing garment fitting to be verified and validating styles and collections, this 3D virtual prototyping solution, the most powerful on the market, will reduce the number of physical prototypes needed and facilitate exchanges within the business (between pattern designers, stylists, developers, sales and marketing teams), and between order givers and sub-contractors regardless of how many there are and where they are located.

Combined with Lectra’s modeling solutions, Modaris and PGS, the market’s reference products, Modaris 3D Fit will enable apparel industry professionals to manage the continual growth in collections and the ever increasing personalization of models. This innovative solution complements Lectra’s product offering in terms of designing, developing and producing products as well as product life cycle management (PLM).

Wii Fit Supply Shortage – 3D Virtual New Years

June 11, 2008

3Dwalkthroughs.com just read on article on Wired.com about the shortage of Wii consoles as well as their new popular game, Wii Fit. For those of you that live under a rock, Wii Fit is a balance board that works in conjunction with the applications that were developed for the board.

It’s an innovative peripheral for Wii that’s simple, fun, and it’s a great way to get you off of the couch and into the action. The Wii Balance Board is more than just a scale —it can read your real-life movements and bring them to life on screen, just like the Wii Remote™ controller. Realistically snowboard down a mountain or walk a tight rope—it’s just one more way to get into the game.

According to the article the author was in NYC for the Webby Awards and went to a flagship store expecting there to be Wii Fit applications in stock…no luck.

The shortage of the Wii Fit game is no suprise as the same things occured in Europe, where the game was launched first.

I cannot help but wonder if the rush on this 3D virtual exercise device can be likened to the huge boom in gym memberships immediately following New Years Eve. It will be interesting to see if Wii Fit can help people extend the success of their resolutions beyond the traditional 3-4 weeks…it will if Fitspot has anything to say about it.
