I suppose I should start by saying thank you to Brazil for hosting a wonderful, and a very memorable World Cup as well as congratulations to Germany for winning and playing like champions throughout (not that I haven’t heard this more than enough from my work colleagues).
I myself am an England fan living in Germany, and having watched the final with some German friends, I found myself feeling very strange at the final whistle. By all means I was happy for them but I found myself wondering, just how does it feel to have such a dream fulfilled. Luckily it’s only 3 years and 10 months until I get another chance to find out.
On to the serious stuff then. First off an announcement that we will be at the Awisa exhibition between 6-9 August in Brisbane, Australia. “The exhibition is the must-see event for everyone in woodworking and associated industries and professions. Furniture manufacturers, cabinet makers, kitchen manufacturers, door, window and moulding manufacturers, joinery manufacturers, architects, designers, shop and office fitters, builders, and other wood, timber and panel processing industries are welcome to attend.”
If you wish to stop by and check out what’s new in Palette CAD 8.2, try out the virtual world through Oculus Rift goggles or just simply say hello, you can find us on the stand 3116 from our Down Under partner Idacs, between hall 3 and 4. You can also find out a lot more about the exhibition on the official website at www.awisa.com/index.html.
In terms of new developments I can also announce the imminent arrival of the new Palette MOVE version 2 app across Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices. It will make it even easier to share your plans with potential customers and get those sales closed. It will also be integrated into another brand new feature, Palette CLOUD available with version 8.2. For those of you already using the original app, simply update the current version.
The idea is to give our users access to their own virtual memory storage. Here the user can upload their MOVE and PLAY files, which can then be passed on to their customers simply per web link, removing the need for end user of needing to download any apps themselves.
Palette CLOUD will be further developed over the coming months, with one of the major goals in version 9 of Palette CAD being library storage and updating directly from our servers. Our claim has always been that we have made CAD easy to understand and use, with CLOUD we will be making our updating and customer interaction just as simple.
I will give you another month to process all of the above, and make sure to enjoy the holiday season!!
Greeting from Stuttgart,
Your Palette CAD "We still believe" Blog Team
