PRODUCT UPDATE: HOOPS Exchange Now Available on iOS and Android Devices


BEND, Oregon — November 30, 2016 — Tech Soft 3D, leading provider of software development tools and 3D PDF solutions to the engineering industry, today announced that HOOPS Exchange, the premier data translation solution, is now available on iOS and Android. This adds to HOOPS Exchange’s already dominant market presence in supporting all major desktop and cloud operating systems including Windows, Linux and OSX.

“Even with the increasing power of mobile devices, many companies still struggle to create or find a 3D viewer that does little more than enable the spinning around of a 3D model,” said Gavin Bridgeman, VP of Products at Tech Soft 3D. “Now developers and engineers can create their own 3D viewer that provides access to the full 3D data and enables more meaningful interaction with 3D models. The possibilities are endless.”

Initial release supports import of STEP, JT, PRC, IGES, Parasolid, IFC and U3D. Additional importers will be available upon request. This gives access to the exact geometry found within CAD files to a mobile application. The full lightweight and fast modeling capabilities of HOOPS Exchange are available for use, including B-Rep interrogation, exact measurements, point cloud projections, section computation and much more!

Now anyone can have all the functionality needed to create a high-power 3D viewer with full, powerful interrogation functionality on a mobile device with the ability to load CAD data without pre-processing.
