I think 3D Warehouse becomes a hot topic. Number of 3D Content is growing. Yesterday I had chance to try out Autodesk Content 3D Warehouse BETA. So, finally, I got the sequence of the following products which are almost similar (or expected to be similar).
Initial impression. Superior 3D performance of 3DVia, Google is absolutely stunning from the speed standpoint. SolidWorks have a very good a practical set of search options including classification, which make it practically useful. It is too early to say something about Autodesk, since it is beta. I need to play more with this product.
What is my conclusion? We will see more content online for the next few years. Significantly more. And this is, in my view, will be the turning point that will move PLM from proprietary formats to open communities. What do you think about?
