Alienbrain 2019 Released for Artists, Designers

LONDON, UK, Aug 22, 2019 – Alienbrain Ltd has announced the release of Alienbrain 2019, the latest iteration of its popular version control software for artists and designers. Alienbrain 2019 is a major update and includes an all-new integration with Epic Games’ Unreal Editor, additional file preview support, as well as an attractive new subscription pricing model. Interested teams can download a free trial version of Alienbrain 2019 from www.alienbrain.com.

Most version control systems are built to handle source code, whereas Alienbrain has been designed specifically to help creative teams work together on the massive digital art files required for next-generation productions. Alienbrain combines an intuitive, thumbnail-based visual user interface, with file storage, version control, and collaboration features, to keep teams focused on what’s important: creating. The Alienbrain server manages all project files and keeps a full history and timeline of each one, ensuring artists always have access to both current and historical versions of all their files.Alienbrain doesn’t require artists to change their current workflows. It has seamless  integrations with leading 2D and 3D art applications, including Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk 3ds Max, and Autodesk Maya, allowing users to gain the benefits of working with Alienbrain without ever switching applications.

New in Alienbrain 2019

Introduced in Alienbrain 2019, the integration with Unreal Editor makes Alienbrain even more valuable for game developers and 3D designers. Unreal Engine is one of the most powerful and popular 3D engines on the market, and with Unreal Editor now fully supported by Alienbrain, artists can automatically check-out, check-in, and version scenes and other Unreal assets, making it even easier to use during the production process.

Alienbrain 2019 has also been released with a new subscription-based pricing model designed to make it more accessible for smaller developers, design companies, and startups. Typical pricing per user is $250 per year, which includes the Unreal integration. Other options are also available.

“Alienbrain has long been the tool of choice for art teams needing to manage large quantities of 2D and 3D files,“ said Nic Johns, founder and CEO of Alienbrain Ltd. “Alienbrain 2019 adds a number of requested features to the mix, including an important integration with Unreal, without departing from the interface and workflow that users have grown to love over the years. And with the new subscription pricing, it has never been easier or more affordable to get started.”

Playing an important role in industries like communication, biomedical and security, ZWSim-EM can be used to simulate antennas, microwave circuits and devices, such as couplers, filters and power dividers.

Leading Solver

For simulation software, accuracy and efficiency are users’ main concerns. ZWSim-EM adopts Embedded Integral Technique (EIT), which is a self-developed and leading technique based on Finite-Different Time-Domain (FDTD). Together with a series of advanced technologies such as upgraded conformal technology, irregular grid processing technology and leading model discreteness, the solver will bring accurate simulation results quickly.

Easy-to-Use

ZWSim-EM is easy-to-use with a minimum set of parameters, friendly user interface and clear workflow. The user interface can be customized according to user habits. Moreover, the simulation process is consistent with the design of user interface, enabling users to set the entire simulation process from top to bottom in Navigation Tree, or from left to right in Ribbon Menu.

Powerful 3D Modeling

Leveraging ZW3D’s powerful modeling capabilities like parametric modeling, ZWSim-EM enables you to build and edit models directly in it to improve modeling efficiency and facilitate later parameter sweep and optimization. Also, it’s compatible with over 20 mainstream CAD formats such as .sat, .stp and .igs. to help import and export different CAD files easily.

Advanced Pre- and Post-processing

Its preparation process is clear, convenient and complete, ensuring that your simulation runs smoothly and your results are displayed correctly. What’s more, the 1D, Far-Field and E/H Field Results can be shown intuitively and multi-dimensionally. Also, the results can be imported, exported, mathematically processed and tracked.

ZWSim-EM is ZWSOFT’s first CAE software for electromagnetic analysis, representing a big step of ZWSOFT’s all-in-one CAx blueprint. Since electromagnetics is an analysis area increasingly applicable to all kinds of products, ZWSim-EM, as an accurate, accelerated and affordable simulation software, is of great help to users.

ZVerse Appoints David Craig as CRO

COLUMBIA, SC, Aug 20, 2019  – ZVerse, Inc, developer of the only CAD as a Service (CADaaS) platform for digital manufacturing, announces that veteran technology executive, David Craig, has joined the company as chief revenue officer.

A software executive with a proven track record of accelerating growth, Craig is focused on growing adoption of ZVerse’s CADaaS platform with manufacturing service providers and OEMs in North America and Europe. Prior to joining ZVerse, Craig served as president of Excent Corporation, chief operating officer for CWK Network, and senior vice president of sales for Servigistics, acquired by PTC.

“As our company looks to next stage growth, David has already made an impact on driving expansion and deepening our business partnerships,” said John Carrington, founder and CEO of ZVerse. “Given his extensive business and tech experience, David will also play a significant role in ZVerse’s overall strategy as the enabler of digital manufacturing. I am thrilled he is an integral part of our growing team as we continue to solve our customer’s 3D content challenges at scale.”

In the age of Industry 4.0, more companies are seeking to produce their legacy parts or spare part catalogues with on-demand manufacturers. Those companies soon realize they may not have manufacturable 3D files required for their chosen production method. This creates friction in the delivery process between manufacturing service providers and their customers. ZVerse’s CADaaS platform bridges the design gap from an idea or a 2D image data file to a 3D file optimized for the selected manufacturing process including CNC, injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, 3D printing and more.

“ZVerse’s position as an industry pioneer is what initially drew me to the company. Some of the biggest names in the digital manufacturing space have adopted the CAD as a Service platform as a sales enablement solution that unlocks new production opportunities for them,” said Craig. “I am eager to help take the company to a new level of growth as we increase our focus on delivering new production revenue opportunities to our digital manufacturing customers.”
