3D Technologies R&D has launched 3D floor plan application development kit

April 4, 2014

We are pleased to announce that 3D Technologies R&D has launched a service for software developers to visualize and interact with 3D floor plans. For example users can create Wayfinding, Smart House and Architecture visualization solutions. Using 3D Wayfinder for Developers will save development time and gives users out of the box floor plan. The solution runs on touch-screen kiosks, mobile devices and websites, which makes it well scalable.

There are many areas where indoor wayfinding solution is useful and even unavoidable, such as shopping centres, transportation stations, sports facilities, hospitals, university campuses, etc. All of these facilities have different kinds of integration needs. This service enables developers to focus on these needs and not to waste time on additional development.

3D Wayfinder takes advantage of the possibilities offered by HTML5 and WebGL, that work on all modern web browsers. Taavi Juursalu, the company’s CTO says: „Our JavaScript API enables developers to intersect and send map specific events, so customizing the map is as easy as the Google Maps API. “

The platform is currently in beta version and therefore free of charge. The company’s Sales and Marketing Manager Kermo Mägi adds: „3D Wayfinder for Developers is one of a kind tool in the World today that helps to widen Digital Signage and indoor wayfinding possibilities. Our service enables any developer to start creating applications without the need for specific skills in 3D field“.

3D Technologies R&D is also offering a full wayfinding solution with 3D floor plans and customer specific software development service. Today, 3DWayfinder helps to find the way in many shopping malls and transportation hubs across the World.

Merry christmas and a happy new year

December 19, 2013

The whole team of 3D Technologies R&D wishes You a merry christmas and a happy new year.

We will put additional effort into developing the software. All for better service and satisfaction for a user.

Just last year we could read that WebGL and HTML5 are not very well supported on mobile devices and have a long way to go. First tests showed that with a low polygon cont it was still lagging and mobile devices crashed often. Now things have changed and there has been a great leap forward – WebGL has started to mature and stabilize.

The mobile Internet speed is increasing every year and application downloading time is shortening. Telecommunications company EE announced recently that it has switched on the world’s fastest 4G network in East London which is capable of reaching speeds of up to 300Mbps. The fast mobile internet connection allows to download and use applications or online services faster and more conveniently.

Devices are becoming more and more powerful – each year more improved and advanced mobile processors roll out. For example MediaTek recently announced the MT6592, a mobile processor that includes eight cores with each capable of running at speeds up to 2GHz. It is the world’s first heterogeneous computing System on a Chip with scalable eight-core processing for superior multi-tasking. Fully functional WebGL on mobile devices is already here and we think that in few years or even less it will reach wider audiences. A prerequisite for this is of course technology’s lower prices and the increase of mobile internet speed.Here is the screenshot of the very first test of 3D Wayfinder WebGL on mobile device (Nexus 5):
