3MF is an industry consortium working to define a 3D printing format that will allow design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers. Our goal is to provide a specification that eliminates the issues with currently available file formats, and allows companies to focus on innovation, rather than on basic interoperability issues.
We want to relieve engineers from tedious routine tasks in order to give more time for creative and enjoyable work. We autonomously generate lightweight and superior designs ready for manufacturing within tens of minutes up to several hours.
With our unique combination of generative, manual, and simulation-based design tools, we let engineers create parts whose functional requirements are baked right in. With Element, you can optimize lattice structures with respect to user-defined inputs, imported data, or our integrated FEA - letting you make the right parts for your application, every single time.
DeskArtes was founded in 1989 as a continuation on research projects started already in 1985 at the Helsinki University of Technology. SAAB Valmet (a car manufacturer in Finland) and Arabia (a Finnish tableware manufacturer) made a request to the research group to develop an industrial design software that would put special emphasis on Aesthetic design features rather than traditional Engineering features. The group was successful in its efforts and the company has today thousands of users for its various software products. The Company key personnel have been with the company already from the research phase thus offering unparallelled cumulative understanding and know how of its business environment.

Blender is the free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. Advanced users employ Blender’s API for Python scripting to customize the application and write specialized tools; often these are included in Blender’s future releases. Blender is well suited to individuals and small studios who benefit from its unified pipeline and responsive development process. Examples from many Blender-based projects are available in the showcase.
Blender is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows and Macintosh computers. Its interface uses OpenGL to provide a consistent experience. To confirm specific compatibility, the list of supported platforms indicates those regularly tested by the development team.
As a community-driven project under the GNU General Public License (GPL), the public is empowered to make small and large changes to the code base, which leads to new features, responsive bug fixes, and better usability. Blender has no price tag, but you can invest, participate, and help to advance a powerful collaborative tool: Blender is your own 3D software.
Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets.
Customers across the manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries—including the last 19 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects—use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they're ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy, to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of our 3D software customers is everywhere you look.
Through our apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Android, we're also making design technology accessible to professional designers and amateur designers, homeowners, students, and casual creators — anyone who wants to create and share their ideas with the world.
Rhinoceros (Rhino) is a stand-alone, commercial NURBS-based 3-D modeling software, developed by Robert McNeel & Associates. The software is commonly used for industrial design, architecture, marine design, jewelry design, automotive design, CAD / CAM, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, product design as well as the multimedia and graphic design industries
OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models. It is free software and available for Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X. Unlike most free software for creating 3D models (such as Blender) it does not focus on the artistic aspects of 3D modelling but instead on the CAD aspects. Thus it might be the application you are looking for when you are planning to create 3D models of machine parts but pretty sure is not what you are looking for when you are more interested in creating computer-animated movies.
exocad GmbH was founded in 2010 as a spinoff of the world renowned Fraunhofer Organization, by the team that created the Fraunhofer IGD Dental CAD Platform. For many years, Fraunhofer's Institute for Computer Graphics (IGD) has been providing state of the art innovations in the area of CAD and visualization. exocad GmbH has an exclusive license for Fraunhofer's dental CAD technology, developed by the founders of exocad while being researchers at Fraunhofer IGD. As a young and dynamic company, its goal is to further push the limits of digital dentistry, and to provide our partners solid, easy-to-use solutions for a rapidly evolving market. Thousands of exocad DentalCAD licenses are being sold each year.

OsiriX is an image processing software dedicated to DICOM images (".dcm" / ".DCM" extension) produced by imaging equipment (MRI, CT, PET, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, Ultrasounds, ...). It is fully compliant with the DICOM standard for image comunication and image file formats. OsiriX is able to receive images transferred by DICOM communication protocol from any PACS or imaging modality (C-STORE SCP/SCU, and Query/Retrieve : C-MOVE SCU/SCP, C-FIND SCU/SCP, C-GET SCU/SCP, WADO) .
OsiriX has been specifically designed for navigation and visualization of multimodality and multidimensional images: 2D Viewer, 3D Viewer, 4D Viewer (3D series with temporal dimension, for example: Cardiac-CT) and 5D Viewer (3D series with temporal and functional dimensions, for example: Cardiac-PET-CT). The 3D Viewer offers all modern rendering modes: Multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), Surface Rendering, Volume Rendering and Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP). All these modes support 4D data and are able to produce image fusion between two different series (PET-CT and SPECT-CT display support).
OsiriX is at the same time a DICOM PACS workstation for imaging and an image processing software for medical research (radiology and nuclear imaging), functional imaging, 3D imaging, confocal microscopyand molecular imaging.

"The idea to create SolidFace CAD software arose when we visualized the increase of the search for 3D CAD technology and the opportunity of a new business model. The product was developed targeted to following key points: reliable, affordable, compatible, user friendly and excellent support service. Some developers of our team have more than 17 years in software development and consulting focused in CAD plus technical experience in many countries like Germany, Italy, Brazil, etc.
Solidface 2D/3D CAD was developed over four years by a team of expert CAD developers, mostly being old UNICAD software developers. This old product was sold more than 4.000 copies on Latin America mostly in Brazil, but also in Italy, USA, etc. To develop the new product was invested more than 2.5 million dollars. One of the top challenges was integrating Parasolid/Siemens 3D kernel. This engine is considered the best for 3D modeling and is used by most of top world CAD vendors. In that way the product is totally compatible to these software as we share the same central engine. "
