Nextech AR Solutions Corp., a Metaverse company and provider of augmented reality experience technologies, wayfinding technologies and 3D model services, has launched a major upgrade to its artificial intelligence-powered software-as-a-service platform, Toggle3D, that enables the creation, design, configuration and deployment of 3D models at scale, using CAD files.
In addition, the company has launched an AI-generated physics-based rendering (PBR) material creation tool that allows for the scale of photorealistic materials. The company believes that this new AI technology will accelerate signups for the platform. The company is also on target for the spinout IPO of Toggle 3D and will be annoucing updates in the near future, the company says.
The new design, which includes a user experience/user interface lift, is geared towards improving the platform functionality by simplifying the 3D modeling workflow, the company says.
A new feature is the introduction of a material template, now available as a feature in the Pro plan. The template contains three different AI-powered methods of creating PBRs, a standard for creating photorealistic materials, from scratch:
- Method 1 allows users to create a uniform color material from scratch.
- Method 2 allows users to create a 3D material out of a texture swatch.
- Method 3 allows users to create a material by cropping a product reference photo.
This means that users do not have to create a similar-looking tabletop finish, but can create its exact digital twin.
The advancements in the CAD converter also open up new use cases for manufacturers in product design and modeling. Manufacturers now have control of their 3D modeling needs and can do it in Toggle3D with no experience or an in-house 3D modeling team required.
To try some of these new and advanced editing features, Toggle3D is offering a 30-day free trial on the Pro plan for a limited time.
Toggle3D is excited to offer an all-in-one solution for manufacturers, making 3D modeling easy and accessible for everyone, with no experience or in-house team required.
