Well, we finally got to the point where we wanted to tell everyone about what we’re doing – many knew already, a few didn’t. Whatever the case was, they do now. the team sent out the following message to everyone we knew this morning – and if we missed you out, apologies, its been one of those weeks.
It’s with a huge excitement that I can announce the launch of DEVELOP3D, a brand new Product Development and Manufacturing venture from publishing start-up X3D Media ltd.
DEVELOP3D comprises a groundbreaking new monthly magazine and dynamic website which will keep the Product Development and Manufacturing community informed of all the latest technologies, processes and trends.
DEVELOP3D’s goal is to give the greatest independent insight and advice on the creation and reuse of 3D product data, wherever it touches the product development process; from conceptual design, through design and engineering, simulation and analysis and into manufacturing and production and beyond.
DEVELOP3D will also address issues surrounding the business of product development, innovation, and globalisation and green issues.
With Greg Corke, Martyn Day and myself heading up the Editorial team we have very broad ambitions and decades of in-house, industry-respected knowledge. We are continually sourcing additional contributions from industry analysts, community bloggers, customers, readers and technology experts.
We will offer a fresh approach to covering this industry, looking deeper and broader to give our readers a real cutting edge and competitive advantage in an increasingly tough global market.
I have included our media pack, which includes concept covers and article layouts to show you the bold new, contemporary design. Our first issue, mailed to 15,000 named individuals, comes out mid-June, with a combined July/August edition and then DEVELOP3D will go monthly from September 2008.
