Well, all that talk of spring fever last month might have been a little ahead of time, seeing as already this month it feels like we’ve jumped back into the ice age one week and then ready for summer picnics the next. The weather is changing quicker than outfits at the Milan fashion show and this flu going around is really pushing the limits of most businesses. It seems it would be less time consuming for employers to collect “Fit for work notes” rather than doctors sick notes. That’s one to look into perhaps, but onto our current affairs.
This month has seen our programming department very busy with Palette CAD 8 translations. As a result many of our international partners got their hands on test versions in their own languages. So far the feedback has been very good and we are in the 2nd stage of testing, having recently updated the translated content. Here below you can see a screen shot of my computer featuring then, the very first non-German version of Palette CAD 8. Privileged!
As the hype surrounding the release grows, you can find more info at our homepage, on your countries respective pages. Here is a little teaser English video of version 8. We will also be looking to expand our YouTube libraries in other languages but you can still see the version 8 in action, in German momentarily , at http://www.youtube.com/user/palettecadkanal?feature=results_main.
This month also saw us represented with two stands at ISH in Frankfurt, between 10th and 14th of March. The ISH provides the world’s biggest showcase for innovative bathroom design, energy efficient heating and air-conditioning technology and renewable energies.
With its focus on conservation of resources and sustainability, 27th ISH show was all about dealing efficiently with the two resources, energy and water. There were 2434 exhibitors present and over 190,000 visitors checking out the latest in innovation.
We ourselves were at forefront of pioneering with Palette 8 in German, English and in Dutch, but what’s more we showed off the world first CAD 3D virtual reality possibilities. This was in cooperation with ImmerSight, company that has made it possible to step into your Palette CAD plans and experience the CAD world in a whole new dimension. The idea behind the cooperation is that, in Palette CAD 8 you can create your plans, and then using the Palette Play export feature, you can step into your plan using ImmerSight, literally.

Finally, I would like to thank our new colleague Daan Spork, from Pallete CAD Holland, for enduring the weather and coming to ISH to represent. Respect.
Right, that’s enough from me for another month, I wish you all a very joyful Easter!
Greeting from Stuttgart,
Your Palette CAD-Blog Team
