I’m Tim Cottrell an ex Gemvision employee who headed up the UK office for training and support. I started in 2007 and left GV when after two years of service with the distributor when GV pulled out of the UK. When Stuller took over GV I could see a watering down of the community spirit and became disillusioned with the corporate path.
I now work for myself as an independent educator and CAD designer for the trade. As you would imagine this isn’t going to well at the moment but hopefully things will start to pick up. I came across 2Shapes purely by chance on one of the many Facebook groups I’m on and had to investigate. I’m glad I did as what an exciting project it is!
I’m still in touch with a quite a few of my students who I still guide and advise on questions with regards CAD from Zbrush, Rhino, Matrix, Keyshot, Maverick etc etc… And 2Shapes is the first program that is a contender to knock Matrix off its top position and give Counter Sketch a bloody nose.
Many Matrix 9 people are looking at Matrix Gold as the next step but are waiting for more positive feedback as it isn’t cheap! 2Shapes for Rhino could potentially get a big chunk of this market as it covers so many bases that Matrix and Counter Sketch occupy.
I look forward to installing the software and exploring what it could do now and in the future.
