TokyoFlash Japan was established in 2000 in Tokyo and since then has grown into a world leader for the design and sales of unique watches for Japanese wristwears enthusiasts.
TokyoFlash has experienced great success with the promotion of its products, which are featured in many world famous magazines, newspapers, television shows and top technology blogs.
Developed with a “the crazier, the better” way of thinking, these watches could not be more fun.

how TokyoFlash uses solidThinking.
The production of shadows in solidThinking can be controlled for each object in the scene, as well as for each light.
All objects will cast and receive shadows when illuminated by lights which have the shadows enabled (note that by default shadows are disabled).
However, there may be situations where this is undesirable, for instance, certain objects cannot produce a visible shadow, due to the viewing position: excluding these objects from shadow calculations can result in improved rendering performance; both in terms of increased speed and reduced memory usage.
This can be performed very easily through the World browser (in case the panel is not displayed, you can open it by choosing Managers > Browser). By right clicking one or more selected objects in the browser, a popup menu appears allowing you to instruct the program as whether an object must Cast shadows or not and whether it must Receive shadows or not.
You can resort to these options also to illuminate certain areas of a scene without creating shadows, without the need for a complex system of ‘fill’ lights as would be used in a theatre or movie set.
We’re pleased to announce the signing of Holland Engineering Consultants (http://www.hecbv.nl) as a value-added reseller. Holland Engineering Consultants (HEC) will market, sell and support solidThinking’s 3D NURBS-based concept-design software throughout Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.
With this expansion in our software’s availability, European designers, engineers and architects will have an additional local point of contact for trying solidThinking solutions and for software support. Its new relationship with solidThinking represents an extension of HEC’s vision, which is to provide clients with a competitive advantage during product development by helping them implement the right tools to create better designs in less time and at a lower cost.
To introduce solidThinking to its clients, HEC hosted a successful hands-on workshop in the Benelux region on June 2. HEC held two sessions involving solidThinking presentations and practical exercises of the software. Session participants were impressed with the speed of the software, as well as its ConstructionTreeTM technology, real-time rendering capabilities and presentation applications.

We look forward to working with HEC to help its clients experience solidThinking’s benefits and will keep you informed of upcoming events in the region as well as other updates on our channel partners. For a map of partners closest to you, click here.
