October has been a very busy month for the DriveWorks team! We’ve been on the road, supporting our reseller’s at their SOLIDWORKS 2019 launch events. Thursday 18th October was a very popular date on the calendar and lots of our resellers invited us to join them. We really enjoy attending these valuable events and we’re pleased to say that yesterday we attended 6 events in 5 countries!Why Warrington?
Warrington has been ‘home’ to DriveWorks for the last 15 years. A recent article by City Metric got us reflecting on the place where we have planted our roots. Whether it’s a drink at the pub after work, a kick around on the football pitch, a weekend park run, the Sunday evening pub quiz or a meeting at one of the nearby modern facilities, there’s everything we need right here.What Is Ambient Occlusion?
Ambient Occlusion is a shading and rendering technique used to approximate how exposed each point in a scene is to ambient lighting. It darkens creases, holes, intersections and surfaces that are close to each other. In real life, these areas tend to block or occlude ambient light, therefore they appear darker. With the release of DriveWorks 16 SP 1, you now have the option of adding Ambient Occlusion to your DriveWorks 3D models.New: Reporting Tech Stack
