ParallelGraphics Launches Internet Model Optimizer, v.1.53D CAD models for the Web (November 01, 2001)
Many companies have invested heavily in 3D CAD, which has enormous value beyond the product design process. But the challenge of compressing large complex 3D CAD models into files small enough to be delivered quickly and efficiently across networks has been seriously constrained by today's bandwidth limitations. IMO addresses this long-standing problem by providing the most efficient delivery of 3D content on the Web.
Using proprietary algorithms, IMO optimizes 3D models by removing the polygons that contribute least to the total visual impression of the models, while allowing for the optimal balance between rendering speed and visual quality.
IMO version 1.5 has a range of new and improved features. These include:
- Support for the transformation hierarchy of a model's parts which allows for complex animations to be created more intuitively and efficiently.
- Support for inlining which allows access to models whose parts are located in separate files.
- Increased support for the editing and previewing of materials.
