Tech Soft 3D Our Story
The 3D Graphics Engine that Could
Tech Soft 3D exists to help software teams deliver successful applications. We began with this simple mission and a single hard-working 3D graphics engine: HOOPS. Made in the Ithaca Labs, spun off from Autodesk, and modernized by Tech Soft 3D, today HOOPS powers over 500 applications around the globe.
Nearly 20 years later, HOOPS now represents a whole suite of powerful, portable tools that keep our partners competitive: from lightning-fast data access and native 3D PDF Publishing, to 3D data viewing, inspection and sharing on the cloud.
Tech Soft 3D is a Business-to-Developer company with a strong reputation as developers ourselves. Leading industry forces turn to Tech Soft 3D to introduce influential new products and ideas. Our long-standing partner Autodesk named us the exclusive global channel for its developer toolkits and platforms. Adobe entrusts us to develop PRC, the rich 3D file format found in Adobe Acrobat and Reader. We’ve in turn re-imagined this powerful technology into inspired products that helped support the widespread movement toward 3D PDF as the benchmark for capturing and sharing 3D data.
What Makes us Tick
Our first level of commitment is always to our partners – and the products we develop are simply a result of that. We value positive relationships, because it’s how we both succeed together. We’re responsive to our partners’ needs, and adjust with agility to industry changes. We pursue excellence for its own sake and because we know and care about our partners. And we enjoy what we do and it shows. Being fun is hardcoded in our culture.
