3D Systems has just announced the acquisition of TeamPlatform, a cloud-based collaborative project manager for engineers, product designers and manufacturers. 3D Systems plans to immediately integrate it into their current offerings, giving everyone using Cubify and Geomagic a whole new set of tools to play with.
Once they have it integrated, TeamPlatform will let you manage as many simultaneous projects as you want. You can assign and track tasks, upload CAD files in any format and cut professional looking quotes at the push of a button. You can even invite your clients to be a part of the system by displaying only the information you want them to see. The CAD files you upload are searchable and have visual thumbnails so you can locate what you need quickly.
"TeamPlatform's powerful collaboration tools connect and expand our growing 3D content-to-print portfolio, multiplexing global productivity and real-time collaboration for our customers," Avi Reichental, President and CEO of 3D Systems said in a recent press release. "We intend to immediately integrate it into our Geomagic Solutions and Cubify platforms for the benefit of our professionals and consumers globally."
TeamPlatform has taken the time to review their service head-to-head against utilities like DropBox and Autodesk360. The company was founded in 2010 and they have steadily been working to add new features to their existing services based on feedback from their customers.
