In this episode of AMP we have a call with Dave Opsahl, VP of Corporate Development for Tech Soft 3D. Dave is passionate about manufacturing and how their technology can dramatically improve operations in the industry. He shares something called Model Based Definition and what this means for the manufacturing industry. We get beyond 3D PDF’s and into augmented reality and virtual reality a bit as well.

Tech Soft 3D is the leading global provider of development tools that help software teams deliver successful applications, as well as the creator of the 3D format that is part of the PDF standard. Established in 1996 and headquartered in Bend, Oregon, Tech Soft 3D also has offices in California, France, England and Japan. The company’s toolkit products power nearly 500 unique applications running on hundreds of millions of computers worldwide, while the tetra4d brand of end-user products are used by many of the top manufacturing and construction firms for converting CAD data into 3D PDF.

I hope that you enjoy this episode of AMP and thank you to Dave for coming on the show!
