3D Direct Modeling: Clarity from Brown and Christensen

3D Direct Modeling is hitting you from all directions right about now, right?

You may not know exactly what it is, but you keep seeing it in the headlines of all your favorite engineering blogs and magazines, right?

Jim Brown just published a solid article on this trend over at Tech-Clarity. It is one of the most accurate pieces I’ve seen on SpaceClaim’s particular take on the 3D Direct Modeling trend.

Jim uses a lot of words like “disruptive” and “shaking up the industry.” Also today (ironically) my favorite dot artist released a new video covering Clayton Christensen’s famous “Innovator’s Dilemma” theory.

Watch the video below, then read Jim Brown’s article… you will then have a pretty good idea of what 3D Direct Modeling and SpaceClaim are all about.
