Cloud API for 3D CAD, Design, Manufacturing Opens to TeamPlatform Accounts for Web, iOS, Enterprise Integration

Web API Initiative for 3D, Project Management, Collaboration uses OAuth 2 for Secure Authentication

Sunnyvale, CA - October 30, 2012 - VisPower Technology, Inc, the developer of the leading Web-based collaboration application TeamPlatform, announces the release of its API (Application Programming Interface) which is now available for any team account familiar with programming.


"Opening TeamPlatform's API offers a great opportunity for our users to integrate TeamPlatform workspaces into their Web site, 3D application, PDM, billing system, CRM or any other enterprise system,\" said Simon Bae, CEO of Vispower Technologies. \"TeamPlatform\'s versatile workspaces are used to manage projects, files, 3D data, tasks, markup, and notes. The new set of API's can read, write and update TeamPlatform workspaces, user profiles, and user groups. End users can now automate workflows by interweaving TeamPlatform and their enterprise applications through the API. The API empowers 3rd party developers to develop add-on\'s combining TeamPlatform with powerful desktop applications like SolidWorks or mobile devices like the iPhone 5," added Simon Bae.

TeamPlatform API is RESTful, uses JSON for serialization, and OAuth 2 for authentication. Chunk-by-chunk file upload support allows virtually unlimited file-size uploads which is important in large 3D Designs, CAD assemblies, 3D Scans, 3D Print Models, or Animations and Videos. Once uploaded to a TeamPlatform workspace, the files are automatically processed making them compatible for viewing, search and sharing on the web. Full text search across workspaces, comments, files, pages and tasks is supported by the API. Searching for CAD or 3D files with the API returns file thumbnail images and file meta-data from matched CAD and 3D models.

The API is suited for any development environment including C++, C#, VB, VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), Ruby, Java, javascript or mobile app development platforms such as iOS or Android. Complete documentation includes Authentication, Put, Get and Return codes and a quick-start C# example and is available here:

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
