MADISON, Wis. The comeback of STMicroelectronics (Geneva) has beenwidely reportedin recent months. Testimony to the companys revival lies in an upbeat set of recent financials and product portfolios. STs first nine months revenue this year grew to $5,880 million from $5,113 million in the same period a year ago.

Ams (Premstaetten, Austria), a vendor of analog, mixed signal and sensor products, is also doing well. In fact, the company, although much smaller than ST in size, is closer to spectacular. In the first nine months this year, Ams revenue jumped by 42.5 percent to 593 million euros compared to the same period of 2016. Ams CEO insists this is not just a short-term spike. He is forecasting a compound annual revenue growth rate of more than 40 percent through 2019.

In iPhone X, Apple adopted leading-edge NIR imagers from STMicroelectronics, while deploying dot illuminators from Ams. Undoubtedly, both companies are profiting from these big design wins. More to the point, to frame the success of these two European companies as just a lucky break induced by the iPhone X factor would be an understatement.

Consider three big changes quietly brewing in Europe.

First, European microelectronics companies are finding their voice again. They have brought much-needed focus to their business with a big emphasis on such growth areas as sensing and automotive. Thats a big part of it.

Second, European chip vendors are applying a much finer level of analysis to strategy. Neither ST nor Ams is focusing broadly on the general sensor market. Each has identified 3D sensing as the biggest growth segment of the sensor market, for which they are boldly taking on the complex technology challenges.

Third, Europe has never given up its passion for technology development. Neither ST nor Ams has totally abandoned manufacturing. Their in-house manufacturing capabilities are paying off now.

Inhis recent report, Pierre Cambou, imaging activity leader at Yole Dveloppement, made the strongest case for ST.

Looking back, he said STs imaging division should have disappeared when Nokia lost its way [in the then newly emerging smartphone battle, and sold its handset business to Microsoft.] But it did not. He asked why.

Cambou credits the engineering teams resilience and creativity at ST. In his opinion, the craziness of investing in Single Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) technology became the first step in maintaining life support to [STs] endangered [imaging] business. He said, Passion for science and technology is not always logical, nor overly business-efficient, but it creates a positive environment for trying new things and going beyond traditional barriers, where no competitor even exists.

Cambou added, STMicroelectronics has shown that innovation is not just a game for startups; large companies can also make the right moves.

3D Sensing: Mega trend

The story of Ams is much different. In a recent one-on-one interview with EE Times, Ams CEO Alexander Everke discussed his companys aggressive, but tightly targeted strategy, which has led to Ams successful entry into high-end segments of a certain sensor market such as light sensing.

Unlike valuation-driven M&A activities in recent years, particularly prevalent among Silicon Valley-based chip companies, Everke stressed, Ams is focused on acquiring technologies, not the revenue.

This is the advantage of long-term investment by companies that have a strategic vision beyond pure financial goals. Unfortunately this is less and less the case in Europe. Congratulations to the engineers and researchers behind this success (with a likely public support from the government, EU or CEA-LETI).

There is no room for sensors on he front of the smartphone or on the rear for that matter- ofc assuming the absurd that smartphone product design is competent and not trailing 5 years behind sanity. The front has to be 100% display, less is suboptimal. Foldable displays would duplicate the issue on the rear of the device.

So everything has to be hidden behind the display, the main cameras (and spectrometer or even 3D imaging) can pop up when in use but all else has to go through the (OLED) display stack, likely optical or ultrasound would be used. There are ultrasound proximity sensors, Qualcomm has under the display ultrasound fingerprint sensor, Synaptics is in production with under the display optical fingerprint sensor. Proximity, motion and ambient light sensors have to follow somewhat the same path, is there any other solution for 100% display? Facial recognition doesnt fit the habits of many humans that cover their faces on a regular basis and it cant be tucked under the OLED stack at any point soon. Aside from being unreliable, less than convenient and less than secure for now. 3D sensing for other purposes doesnt really fit the smartphone form factor (anything you can do with a smartphone can be done 10 times better with glasses) and again there wont be room for it on the front or rear. There will be sales driven by less than ideal product design, just like we see today with Apple, folks do make really dumb decisions at times but the right strategy is not this.

Cars, robots, glasses are real markets but sales in phones are mostly enabled by incompetence and fear -innovation is a risk.

Good strategy now, there are several spaces possible out of mobile and servers !!!!!

Well, unless we are just indulging in mindless hype, the various goals assigned to 5G, to differentiate it from 4G, definitely require higher frequencies than 4G, if just to achieve…

5G doesnt necessarily mean mmwave high frequency bands. TMobile says that they are going to implement 5G across the US on their recently purchased 600MHz band.

The inverse particle lab was also hit by global warming.

When Harry was told all screens only show snow he did not expect to see this.

A note to customers just seeing this recently

This page was created in early 2017. You may have either not received or did not see the announcement. In either case, if you have any questions about anything in this FAQ or are unsure of how this affects you, please reach out to us r your local reseller and we will be happy to explain and walk you through any concerns you may have.

This page was created in early 2017. You may have either not received or did not see the announcement. In either case, if you have any questions about anything in this FAQ or are unsure of how this affects you, please reach out to us ator your local reseller and we will be happy to explain and walk you through any concerns you may have.

I am thrilled to announce that Alibre Design (formerly Geomagic Design) is now owned by Alibre, LLC, a new company formed and owned by ex-Alibre employees. We hope you are as excited as we are about the possibilities for the product and its customers moving forward.

Prior to the acquisition of Alibre, Inc. by 3D Systems, we had the autonomy and focus necessary to put you first, to actively participate in discussions with our customers, and to drive the product ever forward. Our team had passion and the authority to act on it. We formed Alibre, LLC and acquired Geomagic Design because we wanted to return to that environment. We strongly believe in the product, in our vision, and in our customers desire to change the world for the better. It is our pleasure to serve you again.

From the feedback weve received so far, it looks like many of you are as enthusiastic about this as we are. Some of you bought the product after it was rebranded to Geomagic Design. To those customers who may not have had the chance to work with the old Alibre team, we look forward to demonstrating that Alibre, LLC and the people behind it have a genuine interest in being the best CAD company you have ever worked with.

Now that we have launched, we will begin a comprehensive review of bugs and enhancement requests. With input from our customers, we will begin to prioritize our development trajectory.

We are excited for the future, and we hope that you will join us. A lot of discussion is happening on theAlibre Forum if its been a while, or if youve never signed up, drop in and say hi.

3D Systems will terminate licensing support for Geomagic Design products. Geomagic Design products will no longer function. Please view more information in the

Alibre, LLC was formed by former Alibre, Inc. employees who came together to restart the Alibre Design product line. Many members of the original team are back, including sales, development, quality assurance, marketing, and support. The team is excited to get back to the rewarding work of helping to empower engineers, hobbyists, startups, and small businesses in their quest to change the world through the design and manufacturing of amazing products.

The Alibre, LLC executive management team includes:

Max Freeman, CEO formerly Alibre Inc. VP Marketing & Product and General Manager

Ashok Srinivasan, CTO formerly Alibre Inc. VP of Development

Jonathan Pace, COO, formerly Alibre Inc. VP Global Sales

The passionate people at Alibre Inc. helped to develop the Alibre Design product line for nearly 15 years prior to the 3D Systems acquisition in 2011. After its acquisition by 3D Systems, Alibre Design was rebranded to Geomagic Design.

Alibre, LLC is made up of the people that originally developed and supported Alibre Design prior to its acquisition by 3D Systems. Our new company is dedicated to this product only, as well as exclusively servicing the needs of the Alibre Design customer base. We are excited to earn your business and trust. You should expect from us what we strive to give all our customers: honesty, responsiveness, understanding, flexibility, and great CAD software.

Customers who are not on active maintenance but who have Geomagic Design 15.1.1 are eligible for a free upgrade. Those customers should email.

General contact information can be foundhere.

The Geomagic Design product line no longer fits with the strategy of 3D Systems. 3D Systems wanted to ensure the continued development and support of the product, and decided that the passionate team at Alibre, LLC would be the right home for the product and customers.

With regards to Alibre/Geomagic Design, you are now a customer of Alibre, LLC. This means you will contact Alibre, LLC for any questions related to sales, customer support, maintenance, etc. 3D Systems no longer sells or supports Geomagic Design, except fortime-limitedlicensing support ending 6/26/2018 for legacy Geomagic Design products.

If you own 3D Systems products other than Geomagic Design, then you should still contact 3D Systems for those products.

With its large product portfolio, 3D Systems has to perform a complex prioritization of resources. With new ownership, Alibre Design (formerly Geomagic Design) will enjoy 100% of the energy of Alibre, LLC, which is focused exclusively on the needs of the Alibre Design customer base. Most notable to customers will be improvements in development and customer support, as well as increased communication and direct access to people that can help you reach your goals.

Yes. Moving forward, the product will be known as Alibre Design.

For the most part, yes. A few things have been removed, including:

Integration with 3D Systems deprecated Team Platform functionality

Integration with 3D Systems deprecated Cubify Cloud Printing functionality

Integration with 3D Systems Sense scanner

Please see theadd-onsection for other details related to this question.

That depends on the license type you have.

Node Locked Almost all customers will have a Node Locked license. Node lock licenses will not start if there is no Internet accessandyou have not connected to the Internet for around 4 weeks prior to the start of the product. Every time you connect, the 4 weeks is reset. This means you can go quite a while without needing Internet access to start the product, and that you can freely travel, work offline, etc. for about a month at a time before the product will not launch.

Concurrent Concurrent Licenses are designed to automatically grab an available license when you start the software and release it when you are done. As a result, Internet access is required to start the software and should be available when the software is closed. If the Internet is not available when the software is closed, the license will eventually be returned for you automatically.

Offline License Offline licenses are intended for high-security dark site development environments where Internet access is not permitted.

Yes, Geomagic Designs licensing system, which 3D Systems owns, will remain active until 6/26/2018. Until that point, you can uninstall Alibre Design, reinstall Geomagic Design, and license the product with your legacy 3D Systems license key.

Alibre Design 2017 will open any file generated from legacy Geomagic Design or legacy Alibre Design software.

There is limited forward compatibility Geomagic Design 2015.1.1 and some earlier versions of Geomagic Design will open files generated in Alibre Design 2017.

You get Alibre Design 2017 for free ifeitherof the following are true:

You have an active maintenance subscription and/or

The version of Geomagic Design that you have currently is 2015.1.1, the latest version of Geomagic Design.

To check your version, open Geomagic Design and go to Home Window Help About

Almost all former Geomagic Design customers will get a Node Lock License, which is similar to what you have with Geomagic Design.

If you currently have a Network License you will be given a Concurrent License. A Concurrent License is similar to a Network License except it requires the Internet to operate. Currently, Alibre Design does not offer a local licensing server. We realize this will not meet the needs of everyone that currently uses a Network License with a local licensing server and apologize for the inconvenience if it does not meet your needs, please stay on Geomagic Design for the time being. We are evaluating the implementation of a local license server and may include it in a future release.

Our license transition has been smooth, but it is possible that for some customers the correct licensing may not transfer. If this is the case, please contact us atand we will be happy to make it right.

No. 3D Systems will provide licensing support until6/26/2018for Geomagic Design, which uses a different licensing mechanism than the new Alibre Design. After that period, the Geomagic Design product line will not be able to be licensed or run.

Customers will need to switch to Alibre Design at some point before 6/26/2018 if continued use is desired.

No, Alibre Design will not support hardware dongles. If you need to be able to license the software in a location or setup with no Internet access, then you will need to move to an Offline License. Please contact your reseller or Alibre to migrate.

Yes, 3D Systems Flexera licensing system, which Geomagic Design uses, will continue to operate until 6/26/2018. Until that point, you should be able to use Geomagic Design as you always have. Customers that migrate to Alibre Design 2017 will have the same capability moving forward.

You do not need to do anything immediately and have many months before anything is required. However, please be aware of the date described in theWill my Geomagic Design license work forever?section.

Information about accounts, support, and maintenance

I have a 3D Systems account to manage my subscriptions and support. Do I need to open an account with Alibre, LLC?

No, your account information has been transferred to Alibre already.

No. Customers that are not on active subscription typically are charged a small extra fee when they get back on maintenance. However, we are waiving this fee for a long period of time. Please contact us for details.

Your existing maintenance subscription for Geomagic Design is still valid and entitles you to product updates and customer support. Alibre, LLC has the details of your maintenance contract and will be servicing it instead of 3D Systems. You should contact Alibre, LLC for all questions related to Alibre Design and legacy Geomagic Design versions.

Please contact Alibre for all support questions moving forward. For licensing questions related to Geomagic Design, Alibre will initiate a conversation with 3D Systems on your behalf, since 3D Systems controls the licensing mechanism for Geomagic Design products.

Most add-ons should continue to work, however you may have action items based on the add-ons you use.

Keyshot For the version of Keyshot that comes with Alibre Design, you will need to install a new version of Keyshot from Alibre, LLC. If you have purchased a license of Keyshot from Luxion, then you can continue to use that software.

Legacy M-Files / Vault Existing installations of the Alibre / Geomagic Vault should continue to work on Alibre Design 2017.

DST (Motion/FEA) Please see the separate FAQ question below What do I need to know about Simulate and Dynamics

Alibre CAM Alibre CAM from years ago will not work correctly inside Alibre Design 2017.  However, MecSoft Corporation, the developers of AlibreCAM (the new name of Alibre CAM), is preparing a version that will work.  For more information please contact MecSoft directly at

MoI Moment of Inspiration is not tightly integrated with Alibre Design, and you can continue to use it alongside Alibre Design 2017.

Generally speaking, the answer is no. In the past, several add-ons have been included with the software. Moving forward, Alibre, LLC is focusing exclusively on improving the core features of Alibre Design. Alibre Design will continue to be a platform for add-on developers, and we will continue to have relationships with them to ensure their success.

Alibre, LLC will not support or sell most add-ons moving forward, nor will updates to add-ons be included in Alibre Design yearly maintenance. Instead, you will need to make any add-on purchases and get support directly from the add-on provider. This allows us to focus our resources on improving what matters most Alibre Design as well as ensures you receive the highest quality support for specialized add-ons that need unique domain expertise.

One exception to this is the Keyshot product line that provides rendering capabilities. Keyshot will still be included in Alibre Design, and you will continue to receive Keyshot updates and support included for free with your Alibre Design maintenance subscription.

Previous versions of products from Design Simulation Technologies (DST) () will not function on Alibre Design 2017. Alibre, LLC no longer includes DST products in Alibre Design, and you will need to get updates from DST directly. DST has a version available that is compatible with Alibre Design 2017.

Customers on Alibre/Geomagic maintenance on the day of July 2, 2017:

If you have a DST product currently, you are entitled to a free upgrade to the newest version of your DST product which has new features and will work on Alibre Design 2017.In order to get access to this product, you must request it by August 31, 2017. To request access,ndwe will send your information to DST. DST will then email you directly with a link to the new installers, as well as your new license code. As of that point, all support and sales communications related to these products should take place directly with DST Alibre will be unable to provide assistance for these products. Any maintenance you may buy from Alibre, LLC will not entitle you to support or updates from DST. If you would like to receive updates and support for these products moving forward, you must buy maintenance for them directly from DST.

Customers who have lapsed Alibre/Geomagic maintenance on the day of July 2, 2017:

In order to get the upgrade to new DST products that contain new features and compatibility with Alibre Design 2017, you will need to purchase maintenance from DST directly. To initiate this process, please contactand we will forward your information to DST. DST will then contact you. As of that point, all support and sales communications related to these products should take place directly with DST Alibre will be unable to provide assistance for these products.

Partager la publication 3D Systems Sense : Modliser sans efforts

Le 3D Systems Sense nous fait une promesse impressionnante : crer en quelques minutes un modle 3D de nimporte quel objet ou personne. De quoi rendre limpression 3D encore plus utile. Reste donc voir si cette promesse est tenue.

3D Systems est, et de loin, le plus grand acteur du petit monde de limpression 3D. Fonde la fin des annes 80, lentreprise a eu depuis quelques annes une approche trs agressive, rachetant de nombreux concurrents et sassurant ainsi un portefeuille de brevets concernant limpression 3D extrmement bien fournis. Ainsi larrive dune multitude de concurrents ces 2/3 dernires annes na pas vraiment entam la suprmatie de lentreprise, qui continue de produire une trs large gamme dimprimantes 3D, allant de la grand public Cube des mastodontes pour lindustrie vendus plusieurs milliers deuros. Avec le Sense, 3D Systems sintresse un autre bout de la chaine de limpression 3D : le scan dobjets existants. Ce genre dappareil nest pas nouveau, mais il est habituellement bien plus cher et surtout fixe. La promesse dun appareil de numrisation 3D abordable et facile utiliser est donc trs intressante dans loptique dune dmocratisation de limpression 3D.

Extrieurement, le Sense ressemble au rsultat de lunion contre nature dune agrafeuse et dun Kinect. Blague part, avec son design trs pur et sa forme facile prendre en main le Sense a un petit ct futuriste loin dtre dsagrable.

Outre la face avant bourre de capteurs, lobjet na pas de grandes particularits, un cble USB (trop court, on le verra plus loin) sort larrire et on trouve en dessous un pas de vis pour fixer le Sense sur un pied dappareil photo. La qualit de fabrication est correcte, mme si on aurait aim voir certaines pices un peu mieux ajustes.

La prise en main est correcte grce un poids rduit, le bras ne sera pas fatigu mme aprs de longues sessions de numrisation. On se demande toutefois pourquoi 3D Systems fait le choix dun plastique lisse et donc un peu glissant pour la partie intrieure de lappareil. Un plastique mat ou soft touch aurait selon nous t plus adapt.

Pour les curieux le Sense fonctionne de la manire suivante : un motif infrarouge est projet depuis lappareil puis est captur par les deux camras. Les informations sont ensuite renvoyes en temps rel lordinateur (Windows ou Mac, dsol pour nos amis fans de Linux) qui reconstitue tout a en un modle 3D reconnaissable. Un principe loin dtre nouveau donc et qui a lavantage dtre relativement peu cher produire. Lutilisation de linfrarouge nest toutefois pas sans poser de problmes selon les matriaux des objets scanns. Le Sense a par exemple des problmes reconnaitre le verre ou encore des surfaces pas assez rflchissantes. En pratique cela veut dire que vous aurez du mal scanner cette superbe figurine de bibendum Michelin en taille mme le pneu (ou plus srieusement tout ce qui est noir et mat ou trop transparent). La procdure dinstallation est on ne peut plus simple : on connecte le Sense en USB, on enregistre le numro de srie du scanner sur le site de 3D Systems puis on installe le logiciel. Le risque derreur possible est donc clairement rduit au minimum.

Une fois lengin install on peut enfin commencer scanner son environnement. Premier constat : le logiciel est extrmement simple dutilisation. Pas doption ou presque : il suffit de slectionner le type dobjet scanner (personne, objet inanim), sa taille et roulez jeunesse. On fait ensuite le tour du sujet scanner et hop en une paire de minutes on a un modle 3D ! Enfin a cest sur le papier, en pratique les choses sont plus compliques

Premier problme : le cble est court, bien trop court pour faire le tour dune personne confortablement, il aurait fallu deux ou trois mtres de cbles supplmentaires. On peut en partie contourner le problme avec une rallonge, mais cest un pansement sur une jambe de bois Ce manque de longueur fait que lon perd assez facilement le focus sur le sujet scanner. On se prend au final rver dune version sans fil, qui mme un peu plus lourde serait infiniment plus facile utiliser. Une fois le coup de main pris (il faut scanner vitesse constante et rester au mme niveau) on constate dautres problmes. Certains matriaux ne sont ainsi pas trs bien scanns et surtout lappareil fonctionne au final assez mal sur des petits objets. Le Sense sera donc bien plus efficace sur une chaise de bureau que sur une petite figurine. Cest bien dommage car les objets que lon a le plus besoin de scanner sont les plus petits, ceux qui peuvent effectivement tre reproduits lchelle 1 avec une imprimante 3D abordable .

Ceci dit dans de bonnes conditions, les scans sont tout fait acceptables. On a souvent besoin de passer derrire pour gommer certains dfauts ou optimiser le tout pour une impression. Les outils de modlisation intgrs au logiciel sont basiques mais ils sont trs simples utiliser et suffiront pour prparer la plupart des impressions. Les plus bricoleurs pourront sans problme importer le fichier dans un logiciel plus avanc pour modifier les choses plus profondment. Bien que le logiciel ne soit pas excessivement gourmand mieux vaudra utiliser une machine un minimum muscle pour plus de confort. 3D Systems a logiquement bien pens lintgration de son cosystme puisquil est possible denvoyer directement le fichier scann en WiFi vers une imprimante de la marque.

Si vous souhaitez vous amusez, nous vous proposons de tlcharger les quelquesscansraliss la rdaction puis de les visualiser avec le logiciel MeshLab disponibleici.

Le 3D Systems Sense nous laisse partags. Dun ct il permet effectivement de scanner des objets et personnes bas cot et avec une facilit remarquable. Malheureusement le produit est encore trop cher pour le grand public et ne propose pas des scans dassez bonne qualit pour vraiment intresser les professionnels. Un peu comme avec la Cube 2 il y a quelques mois la dmonstration technique est donc convainquant mais le produit en lui-mme nest pas encore assez abouti pour tre utile. On surveillera toutefois avec attention les prochaines versions, linnovation dans le monde de limpression 3D tant trs rapide. Ceci dit pour le moment mieux vaudra rester sur des solutions de scan fixe qui sont autrement plus efficaces.
