Clients of aircraft seating company Sogerma are often wowed by the software used to visualise their seat range in different cabin configurations and colour schemes. The company behind the technology – Lumiscaphe – has released the latest version (version 6) of its P3D software suite, which is intended to help clients create digital mockups, integrated into the digital PLM/technical database process. The latest developments in the software include the integration of a range of animation capacities; an environment for kinematic creation, including a camera editor, dynamic textures, timelines and animated camera paths; a configuration system that functions independently in each viewport; and a unified software development kit. The sharing, diffusion, and online validation features are intended to deliver a collaborative experience and increase interaction between the final user and a 3D digital mockup.
P3D Portal is an intranet sharing platform for preparing and publishing high-quality imagery. The portal facilitates the management of a portfolio of documents across many file types associated with a project or a product. A Product Data Management application means that each team has access to the same Digital Aspect Mockup in client meetings, in the office, in the showroom, or on the go.
