Designers on Windows and Mac Enjoy New Levels of Design Freedom and Efficiency with solidThinking Evolve® 2014

TROY, Mich., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- solidThinking, Inc. today announced the latest version of its solidThinking Evolve® software. An enhanced user interface and refined workflow controls in solidThinking Evolve 2014 allow industrial designers to develop forms faster than ever, in either Windows or Mac OS X. This latest release empowers users with new and enhanced productivity tools, enabling faster creation of complex products.

"We have been listening carefully and collecting feedback from both veteran and new customers," says Darren Chilton, Program Manager for solidThinking Evolve. "With Evolve 2014, we focused on adding new features to make the existing workflow more efficient, the geometry even more robust, and to fine tune the most commonly used tools."

More details are available at solidThinking.com/Evolve. The website features a large collection of new videos including an overview of what's new in Evolve 2014, a tour of the user interface, and an overview of how Evolve fits into the product design process. 

Key new features in solidThinking Evolve 2014 include:

Live Linking to KeyShot – Enables KeyShot scenes to be continuously updated directly from Evolve

New Construction Aids and Scene Management – New and improved snaps, new isolate mode, better management of hiding/unhiding objects, and many new hotkeys to increase workflow efficiency

Enhanced User Interface Options Simplified workflow for importing and controlling background images, new option to enable/disable selection pre-highlighting, and a mode to quickly disable curve visualization for better model evaluation

Improved Modeling Tools Refined replication tools for a more intuitive workflow, increased surface control for the Round tool, and more robust deformation tools

"Detailed control over the surfaces in solidThinking Evolve affords enormous modeling freedom without complexity," says Sundog Eyewear Creative Director, Michal Hrk. "I have a picture in my mind that I want to come as close to as possible, and Evolve gives me the ability to quickly find alternatives and sometimes discover an unexpected and better end result."

solidThinking Evolve allows industrial designers to develop forms faster, using either a Windows PC or Mac. Evolve captures an initial sketch, allowing exploration of styling alternatives and the visualization of products with high-quality renderings generated in real time. It combines the modeling freedom of organic surfaces and the control of parametric solids with a unique ConstructionTree history feature. Evolve releases designers from the constraints of engineering-oriented CAD tools, while allowing the export of digital models required by others in the product development process.

Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots. Managing financial information on spreadsheets and piecing together insight from numerous disconnected systems is no longer an option. Rapid market changes and aggressive competition are motivating business leaders to reevaluate legacy technology investments in search of modern technologies to achieve greater agility, reduced costs and organizational efficiencies. ...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycl...
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
