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:

Novotechnik - Vert-X 1300 Non-Contacting Rotary Angle Sensors

Novotechnik - Vert-X 1300 Non-Contacting Rotary Angle Sensors

Non-contact rotary sensors measure just 13 x 20 mm. Novotechnik's non-contacting technology eliminates the need for a resistance track and wiper to provide longer life. This technology Utilizes a vertical Hall sensor with a unique cross-structure affixed to a silicon chip. Vert-X 1300 Series of sensors measure changes in the magnetic field as the shaft is turned to provide a 360° measurement range with 12-bit resolution. Designed for robotics, medical devices and scientific instrumentation where small size has to be combined with high precision, Vert-X 1300 Series sensors are available with a wide range of options including: analog, incremental, SPI, SSI, and PWM outputs; custom shaft designs; and customer specific cabling.
