solidThinking Inspire® has been recognized as one of Architosh’s “Best of Show” products at this year’s American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention, held this year in Chicago June 26-28. Taking honors in the Innovation Category, solidThinking Inspire enables design engineers, product designers, and architects to create and investigate structurally efficient concepts quickly and easily.
For the past two years, Architosh, the number one worldwide online publication dedicated to Mac and iOS CAD for 3D software professionals and students, has awarded technology vendors for overall product excellence, outstanding new features and updates, and cutting-edge approaches to workflow transformation. The “Best in Show” award announcement occurs during the annual AIA National Convention and Exhibition. Architosh recognizes vendors in various categories, including desktop, mobile, building information modeling (BIM), and innovation. Regional Manager Chad Mach and the solidThinking team had a chance to discuss the upcoming Inspire 2014 release with Architosh at the event.
“Altair continues to push forward in AEC with its industry-leading engineering technologies and its fusion early stage design tools like solidThinking Inspire 2014,” noted Anthony Frausto-Robledo, AIA LEED AP. “Version 2014 fuses direct-modeling tools like push-pull faces and powerful Booleans with linear static and normal modes analysis, as well as geometry simplification and concentrated mass parts. Another exciting aspect of this tool is it works on both Windows and Mac platforms, empowering designers to consider weight-reduction and material efficiency prior to final engineering development. Inspire will continue to develop with interesting consequences for AEC.”
Architosh has a strong focus on architecture, and continues to be a wonderful channel for exposing solidThinking Inspire to AEC professionals around the world. The 2014 Best in Show award is truly an honor for solidThinking. Congratulations to all the winners!
