I've got a client who wants to add 3D models on his website of his
products so customers can download them. They have about 6 variables and
are fairly simple devices. Sounds like an application for Partstream.
But what is Partstream exactly? Is it an application, or a series of web
page templates? How do you design the model so that it can be
Partstreamed? Do you load assemblies and parts on the server? How do you
tailor the web page to the product? Do you load Solidworks on the
server? How is it able to provide all those 3D formats, including Pro E?
Is the customer signup/database page included? Where can I find more
practical how-to info on the web? And finally,
What are the costs of the software and or templates? Or are they
included in 2006 Office? (I have 2004 basic) My client wants to host it
on his own server, so there should be no hosting costs.
I thank you all in advance for enlightening this ignoramous. My local
VAR directed me to S/W, and I spent a less than enlightened 10 minutes
listening to a sales pitch, before I said I'd get back to him.
