Many of those who are passionate about 3D printing sometimes underestimate the importance of 3D visualization environments; however, before 3D printing a prototype to test it in real world conditions, it can be very useful to “play” with the CAD design in simulated virtual environments.
That is what the Construct, a Swiss startup that was just voted among the top 8 at the Startup Fair – Swiss Startup Convention, wants to enable you to do.
