We just love RealFlow; there’s simply nothing quite like it. This new release comes with plenty of new features and improvements: from Hybrido Viscosity and HySPH Bubbles Emitter, to completely revised “Sheeter” daemon, RealFlow 2014 promises to make a difference in your workflow.
To learn more about RealFlow 2014, register for our live webinar on July 9th: Victor Sanchez will walk you through RealFlow’s improved UI. You will learn how to create your own scene assets, how to customize the interface, and how to speed up your workflow using the new presets.
Also, you can save 15% from now until July 31st.
The beta period is over and Scan&Solve 2014 for Rhino is now officially available. This new release expands the power and simplicity of structural simulation to any solid solid geometry (polysurfaces, extrusions, meshes) within Rhino 5. It comes with great features such as faster solvers, higher resolutions, and automation through Rhinoscript.
If you bought a license after June 1, 2013, you can receive a free upgrade by sending an email with your current license information to Intact Solutions.
If you need to import specific CAD formats to MODO for visualization or design, you need Power Translators for MODO. With this product you can bring into modo the following file formats: Parasolid (.x_t and .x_b), IGES (.igs and .iges), STEP (.stp and .step), SAT (ACIS) and Rhino (.3dm).
The Power Translators for MODO also provide control over how geometry is imported and give you options for handling large files with repetitive elements. For more details, check the product page on our website.
moskitoRender for 3ds Max and Design is a new one-of-a-kind, GPU-only renderer, by Cebas.

It’s no secret that we love Brian Benton’s teachings, whether they come in form of a blog post or in an in-depth video tutorial series. His newest project based training is all about AutoCAD 2015. Click here to read all the details.
Maxwell Render v3 is not part of this week’s list of new releases, but I am including it here because I have noticed some of our readers don’t realize that one Maxwell Render license includes plugins to a lot of the top 3D applications, including Revit, Photoshop, MODO and SketchUp. Find more details here.
Take product design and manufacturing to the next level with Geomagic Design, Geomagic Design Elements, Keyshot for Geomagic and more. Here’s the complete list.

And on Wednesday we are excited to welcome Jim Girard and Matt Sederberg to our Webinar Series. They will give us a A Beginner’s Look at T-Splines for Rhino 5 and will take questions from the audience at the end of their live presentation.
Matt Sederberg was the founding CEO of T-Splines, Inc., before he sold the T-Splines technology to Autodesk in 2011. He continues to manage development of Autodesk T-Splines Plug-in for Rhino, as well as influence the proliferation of T-Splines across Autodesk (it has now been commercially released in the latest versions of Inventor and Fusion 360). He also manages the development of Autodesk’s automotive design products, including Alias.
Jim Girard is the Principal of Origin Design, a full service industrial design firm located in Boise, Idaho. Jim has been an early user of both Rhino and T-Splines and has leveraged the strengths of these programs on a variety of client projects. As a certified Rhino Trainer, Jim offers on site training for corporate and consultant design staffs, and for individuals seeking to enhance their Rhino 5 capabilities with T-Splines.
