Mac versus PC who is cooler now?

over inspirende ontwerpen incl. 3D scanners

Samenwerking met SketchUp


Of te wel wie gaat er in 2016 met de virtuele DESIGN AWARD vandoor?

Apple of Microsoft ?

en wie is er bezig om het 3D scannen van modellen algemeen te maken?

Enkele uren voor de presentatie van Cook's vroegtijdig gelekte Powerbook feature is het nu ook voor Apple duidelijk dat er SNEL werk aan de winkel is om het imago vlot op te schroeven. En niet groter, kleiner, dunner en waterdicht, maar innovatief.

Microsoft just made Apple products look old fashioned. Astonishing work. And I am Macbook user but this is just so crazy good.

The imac is a consumer level product only, and in no way fits into the workflow of any type of designer, same for the Ipad. That is why the surface studio is much better. Its highly useful for designers and creative people.

Jobs back to life and is working for Microsoft?


met een recensie van de nieuwe Microsoft Surface Studio, ongekend voor een Apple tijdschrift.

Spec for spec, the iMac is a bargain over the Surface Studio

Just for fun, we compare Microsoft's brand-new desktop PCs to similarly spec'ed iMacs released a year ago and the iMacs are $700 to $1,000 cheaper.


The biggest difference is the graphics chip's in the iMac, you get an AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. There is no Nvidia option for this iMac; it's AMD all the way.

GPU NVIDIA GTX 965M (Surface Studio)

How Surface Studio takes on iMac in 5 steps

But it's the Surface Studio where Microsoft is aiming to change the way creative people make art. And design things, and illustrate, and conjure up 3D sculptures in the digital realm.

Holograms, 3D and a Surface PC: what to expect at Microsoft's Windows 10 event

Tim Biggs October 26 2016


If Microsoft really wants to push Holographic and is looking to promote the Surface PC as a machine at the centre of it all, it could include a 3D camera array similar to Google's Project Tango or Intel's RealSense, allowing the computer to scan and model its surroundings and any objects you present to it.

SketchUp partnership?

The new, 3D focused Paint will give users the ability to work in three axes using a variety of new tools. While it's able to import 3D scans, the "magic select" is able to pull images from their background easily, and "doodle" instantly turns any 2D drawings into 3D renders. All the extant 2D brush, pen, and pencil tools will have the ability to interact with 3D objects as well. Microsoft are also planning on adding 3D scanning to all Windows phones, though the timeline for the rollout is unclear.

A robust library of 3D objects to play with in Paint will be provided by Remix, as well as a partnership with Sketchup. Sharing to Facebook is supported natively, and will display on timelines as a rotating gif. But most impressively-Paint projects will be able to be 3D printed right from the app.

Microsoft's fresh coat of Paint will be available in the Windows 10 Creators Update which ships next spring.
