Happy 1st Birthday 3D Perspectives! Magic 7 Discussions . . .

By Kate


Get the cake ready, we’re gonna make a wish and blow out the candle tomorrow at ECF! Excuse me if I sound like a weepy parent, but it’s hard to believe our baby’s growing up so fast! Sniff!

According to Babycenter.com, we can expect a 12-month-old to reach developmental milestones like “taking his first steps” and “new kinds of play.” I particularly like the words of wisdom, “remember, your child is an individual.”

And 3D Perspectives is taking on its own personality in a way, n’est-ce pas? This is reflected by your favorite posts and discussions, which are driving 3D Perspectives’ development.

Since 3D Perspectives is a blog and not a child, rather than flipping through the “Jr.’s First Year” family photo album here’s a look at the TOP 25 most read posts (according to Xiti). (Then I’ll get to the most discussed.)

Which is your favorite?

So now for Year 2, what’s next? Well, it depends . . . what would YOU like next?



Social Innovation in Plain English!

By Jonathan

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.

…said Albert Einstein.

Well, I’m hoping that you and your grandmother will be able to understand the benefits of Social Innovation after having watched this short video.

So, did you understand? Should I have explained it better? Did you like it?

Let me know your thoughts…

Sustainably yours,

How to Create Products for Our Digital Future?

By Oleg

Have you ever thought about what will be the future of product creation, manufacturing and consumer experience?

Very often we live in our own domains in our own closed environments. However, boundaries are difficult to sustain for the long-term. Life is dynamic, and changes are being generated all the time from user experiences, communication and other technological and social aspects.

It is not always simple to get a cross-domain perspective. So, I will try and offer you examples of existing and future technologies and experiences to show my perspective on how tomorrow’s products will be designed, created, manufactured and sold.

Design Experience. Do you remember how we designed products in the past? Paper, drawings etc.? Nowadays innovation in product design and creation change the way we can think about our future’s products. Design becomes more realistic, 3D, immersive.

Manufacturing and Supply Experience. Internet and online experiences will completely change the way we are doing B2B communication. I think this will have a direct impact on supply chain and manufacturing. As manufacturers spec products, their bill of materials will be dynamically priced based on global pricing information delivered to their CAD and PLM systems online from available global marketplaces.

Consumer Experience. Everything will be designed, manufactured and supplied digitally. Does it mean our consumer experience will be changed too? Yes, of course. We will start to consume things differently.  Our shopping experiences in stores and online will be different and this will be a direct impact of fully digitally created products manufactured on demand.

So, I hope you enjoyed videos and maybe got my perspective of future digital product design, manufacturing and consuming.

I’m looking forward your thoughts and comments.

Best, Oleg
