A while back the IMTS 2012 was held in Chicago, USA. Now for those of you not familiar with IMTS it´s a trade fair for the manufacturing industry and IMTS is short for “International Manufacturing Technology Show”. Missler Software has been presented on IMTS for years and this year was no different.
MCAD Café got a chance to interview Missler Software Technical Director Bill Genc who explains TopSolid 7 and the possibilities of next generation CadCam software.
To see the interview, got to the MCAD Café website.
If you are using TopSolid’Image and want to easily and quickly create nice renders without having to setup a “scene” everytime, you can download this “Render Studio” by SAG.
Assign material or coatings to walls and floors if you like.
As seen in the video below you can adjust the size of floors and walls by dragging circles and points. You can also change the position of the camera and lights by dragging their positioning points.
There is also a centered Frame for easy positioning of you part/assembly which you can the rotate around the Z axis to your desired position. It doesn´t get any easier than this now does it? ;-)
You can download the rendering studio for free here.

The French TopSolid forum just got updated!
Aswell as getting a well deserved graphical update the forum has also recieved some ” under the hood” updates, one of them being support for Tapatalk.
Support for Tapatalk is nice because it makes it easier for users like me and you to follow what´s going on in the forums using only a smartphone.
Even though the French users can enjoy this update already, the International forum will be updated in the same way in a few weeks time.
In the meantime if you are not familiar with Tapatalk, check out the Tapatalk website.
Ok, so it´s summer and it´s vacation time i know.. still who doesn´t enjoy a good video from time to time?
I´m sure most people using TopSolid 7 know “Representations”. However, i´m not sure everyone is aware of something called ”Simplified Representation”. This comes in handy when your doing something like a 2D layout and only need a sketch to present your part or assembly.
In this video SAG will show you how to use and create “Simplified Representation” in TopSolid 7. And as always, everything is drag´n drop easy!

It´s also about this time of year the latest release of TopSolid 7 is available as a Trial version and this year is no different. TopSolid 7.6 Trial is now available for download at the TopSolid 7 website. So to get the most out of your summer go get it now! =)
Check out this video on how to add text, parameters or symbols to drafts using a text editor.
Keep in mind that TopSolid 7.7 is still in Alpha stage and what you see in this video might differ from the final version.

As this was the second year being invited by Missler Software to attend the TopSolid seminar, i had some idea of what to expect. I had a great time last year and this year was no different.
I arrived at the legendary Carlton Hotel wednesday afternoon and metup with American TopSolid superstar and friend Bill Genc.
Traveling from a cold and snowy Scandinavia i sure enjoyed the sunny weather in Cannes and what would be better than going out for a beer to catchup with some old friends?
Even though there is a welcome dinner on wednesday evening the the one event to kick-off the seminar is the global meeting where Missler Software summarizes the past year and presents news about the coming year. One being a new strategic union with French Comapany Alma, experts in Sheet-Metal. Exciting news for anyone working with Sheet Metal.
There was also some success stories, and presentations of some resellers around the globe from Brazil to Thailand. The latter being 4D Corporation in Thailand who has posted a bunch of cool videos on YouTube.
The next couple of days was filled with interesting workshops about TopSolid product lineup aswell as other useful topics much appreciated by everyone.
There was one meeting this year that was very special for me, i finally got to meet with Saad Gasmi, an AE at Missler Software who is considered to be one of the very best and has some many, many years of TopSolid experience. Saad has been helping out alot since i started the blog, and infact he is behind alot of the material presented on TopSolidBlog. Thank you Saad!
On saturday afternoon there was some other activites, sailing, bus rides or…. driving 2 CV around Cannes which was alot of fun! Check out the video below this post!
Saturday ended with a gala award ceremony where the most successful French and international Sales Teams were rewarded.
One might think that spending almost four days at the seminar you would have plenty of time for meetings or just hanging out. But suddenly i find myself on a plane heading for home and i wonder what happened? Lot´s of people i did not have a chance to talk to or only got the chance to meet briefly.
I would like thank Missler Software and especially the marketing team for letting me be apart of the 2012 TopSolid Seminar!
