A couple weeks ago, the Product Design Show featured tamaggo and their affordable 360 degree camera for the lay photographer. Tamaggo is on the cutting edge both in their product technology and in their design. Tamaggo designers started with Pro/ENGINEER WildFire 4.0 and quickly upgraded to Creo 1.0 and now use Creo 2.0. For tamaggo, it’s all about usability.
The concept of the 360 degree camera takes previously square technology (by design) and curves and resurfaces that technology into an ergonomic egg-shaped camera that fits and balances in your hand.
Stephane Lepage, VP of Design and Engineering, says that while modeling was powerful in Pro/ENGINEER WildFire 4.0, it lacked usability. The workflow in Creo 2.0 is much more refined in creating, modifying, changing, and verifying their Tamaggo designs.
Some crowd pleasers in Creo 2.0 include the new ribbon UI, where similar commands are grouped together for faster access in fewer clicks. Additionally, new sketching and dynamic cross-sectioning capabilities in Creo Parametric 2.0 simplify design and modification. The enhancements estimate a 30% increase in design efficiency. Our head-to-head comparisons illustrate this projection in real-time.
In the video, Lepage discusses the key benefits of using Creo 2.0 over Wildfire. To learn more about Creo 2.0 usability and other enhancements, check out some of these great links below:
