Nextech AR Solutions Corp., a Metaverse Company and provider of augmented reality experience technologies, wayfinding technologies and 3D model services, announces multiple platform development updates to its Toggle3D Design Studio.
Toggle3D is an AR enhanced standalone web application that enables product designers, 3D artists, marketing professionals and eCommerce site owners to create, customize and publish high-quality 3D models and experiences without any technical or 3D design knowledge required. The Toggle3D software-as-a-service platform is made for the manufacturing and design industry, with ability to convert large CAD files into lightweight 3D models at scale.
“I’m super excited with these new developments of our flagship SaaS platform Toggle3D, which is set to disrupt the $11 billion CAD market,” says CEO Evan Gappelberg. “We believe that Toggel3D will drive a significant amount of revenue and value for Nextech shareholders as we are quickly moving out of Beta where we are getting incredibly positive feedback, to a full commercial launch later this month.”
Since its beta launch, Toggle3D has been working with early adopters as the development of the platform continues. This early adopter group includes manufactures, production agencies, design agencies, industrial software companies and XR startups. These users are looking for a 3D modeling creation workspace for use-cases such as prototyping, design decision-making, content population in XR scenes and marketing applications.
Product Development Updates
Material Creation: Toggle will be releasing a new template in the platform for material creation. In Toggle3D, there is a physically based rendering material creation flow that reportedly reduces the time from hours or days to minutes. Anyone can transform a 2D reference image into a high-quality realistic PBR material with no technical experience necessary. This is possible due to the generation and training of advanced learning algorithms in NextechAR’s research and development hub.
Supports NEW File Formats & Expanding CAD Conversion Capabilities: Toggle3D will be able to welcome new file format imports and will introduce improvements to its CAD file management. There will be logic that allows parts from CAD conversions to be automatically named, grouped and filtered in a way that decreases file organization flow effort by more than 200%.
