DEMOS

DAVE ALPERT, CEO @ GEOPOGO
3D made simple. Geopogo develops faster and easier 3D design software to revolutionize the design process and expand the 3D market to embrace many more creators. Designers can import 3D construction drawing models from Autodesk Revit to rapidly add lighting, furniture, finish materials, colors, and particle effects on PC and in VR. Design-from-scratch option coming soon!

GABRIELE SORRENTO, CEO @ MindDesk VR
Mindesk is the first VR platform natively integrated with CAD software. Designers can review, edit, create 3D models as well as collaborate with teammates & engage with customers. It works with Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, SolidWorks and soon will support Unreal Editor, for a photorealistic 3D modeling experience. Mindesk is a transversal tool that can help to manage complex design, have more inclusive and effective design review sessions, reverse engineer a points cloud scan, create organic shapes, all without leaving the designer's current CAD solution,

TONY VALDERRAMA, CTO @ CLARVOYANT
Clarvoyant is commercializing a suite of multi-platform, AR/VR compatible, instant holographic prototyping and collaboration tools originally built at NASA / JPL to enable early-stage spacecraft design. We're democratizing access to 3D designs and data, because you make better products when your entire team - engineers, customers, operators, salespeople, mechanics, executives, designers - can participate in and benefit from the creative process.
