what tools are your currently using and how does 3D fit in that landscape? are you using CAD software and if so, does its provider offer strong 3D technology which would be effective to use in your organisation? or does it make more sense to use a separate 3D software? is the latter’s integration with your CAD strong enough for your creation process? which PLM system are you using and how could it integrate with 3D technology? the same questions go for any other downstream system that your company is using.
