Threedy is a spin-off from Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt, Germany. It has now raised early-stage venture capital to commercialize its instant3Dhub platform. This platform primarily supports visualization, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications, and will initially serve companies in the automotive, aerospace and energy industries, as well as users of building information modeling (BIM) solutions. The investment is led by the Industrial Technologies fund of btov Partners, in association with High Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and Fraunhofer.
Threedy’s instant3Dhub proprietary platform for high-performance visual computing enables customers to leverage 3D data of any volume or format on any device for a variety of applications. Building upon extensive Fraunhofer IGD research, the team of four company founders has successfully demonstrated a broad variety of use cases in manufacturing.
instant3Dhub can be easily integrated into existing PLM systems. It offers a wide range of features, e.g., for distributed collaboration in engineering processes, for VR and AR on assembly lines and in repair shops, for tracking moving objects using 3D models, and for offline operation of applications when stable online connections cannot be guaranteed. Leading German automotive OEMs already utilize Threedy’s flexible platform, and there is an attractive pipeline of new projects and use cases for 2021.
