AiM uses Flare3D to produce an e-learning and Holographic 3D experience

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

AIM Services using Flare3D

AiM Services, a Swiss Technology Services Company incorporates 3D technology using Flare3D to boost their relationship with Swiss Watchmakers. AiM developed a touchpad based production order application that incorporates a viewer offering 3D interactions with watch mechanism and parts. This project involving 3D was made for the Watchmaking School of Geneva. The school wanted an e-learning innovative manual for professional training. The result was a comprehensive interactive e-book that combined PDF documents, pictures, videos and 3D models.



Additionally, a second solution developed is the Holographic Interactive Pyramid. Introduced in 2013 at a Tell-Day event is now in full time display at the Watchmaking School of Geneva. The pyramid allows three-dimensional, realistic and animated visualization of a watch model through the 4 sides of the pyramid. Completed with a leap motion box, the pyramid becomes interactive allowing users to play with the model in order to observe every detail of the carefully designed mechanism.

AiM can now help customers with comprehensive watch digital information from A to Z meeting the needs of production, after sales service, marketing, technical communication, training and quality contol.

We asked Eric Pascal, Head of Consulting Department at AiM about his experience with Flare3D. He told us

“I discovered Flare3D while testing different APIs. Flare3D stands out from the others because it is fast, esay to use and has an editor that allows for customization of 3D models created through TellWATCH, our CAD solution”

He made us quite happy by complementing  Flare3D as being open, well designed and fitting perfectly with AiM’s development strategy. With its expertise in application development, AiM is now able to extend Flare3D by enriching the solution with new features. To sum up the features created as part of these projects: Visualization of a spring movements, management of camera movements for animations or management of pieces transparency.

Eric shared the next steps for AiM and told us that these projects opened a door to a world of possibilities for Flare3D integration by soon taking further steps in the field of stereoscopic 3D, virtual reality (interfacing with Oculus Rift) and the interactions with webcams.




CGTRADER and Flare3D, meet the winners

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

We believe that to have a good set of 3D assets is essential for our projects and we also know that get good 3D artists is a hard task too. When Alex from CGTRADER asked us if we wanted participate in a new challenge where the goal was create 3D models for video games our answer was immediate –”Yes, sure!”

CGTRADER has a large community of great artists and Flare3D has a great developer’s community that needs this kind of resources.

CGTRADER - 3D Game model Challenge

The “3D Game Model Challenge” was launched a couple of months ago and now we can present some of winners works! We are very impressed with their work’s quality and we want share it with you in a Flare3D version! You can rotate and zoom them to appreciate in detail the great work made by these artists.
