3DVia

Interesting new(?) iPad publishing system 3DVia that claims to be able to take 3D models and slot them into iPad apps…

“…seamlessly integrates your images, video and 3D files into engaging, mobile-ready web apps for the Apple iPad platform. Just upload your media to 3DVIA.com, place it into the app design of your choice and publish.”

They also have an interesting 3DVia Store service, to help people get familiar with where things are in a physical store…

I haven’t looked into it too much, since it looks like the kind of service where “if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it”, but it would seem that the service must be pumping the end result to mobile devices in real-time? Hence it needs low-poly 3D. Now that we have “quickly build it in iClone and export to FBX with 3DXchange 5 Pro”, I wonder if this sort of service might be an emerging market for content creators and developers?
