MinosaLAB Libraries now available!

Minosa needs little introduction to the Australian design community, and keen PYTHA Pros will be well aware of the incredibly high standard of renderings the Minosa team produces. Led by long-time PYTHA Pro, Darren Genner, this Sydney-based firm is setting a new standard in 3D Renderings, and we are thrilled to be offering an exclusive suite of MinosaLAB designed-and-developed library items at My 3D Shop. You’ll find two stunning MinosaLAB packages on offer, as set out below: MinosaLAB Bathroom PACK 1 The MinosaLAB Bathroom PACK 1 is a stunning collection of 56 high-quality 3D models for your bathroom scenes, with objects carefully curated from nine renowned bathroom brands. All models have been created with the upmost attention to detail, and are textured and ready to use. Items can be dragged and dropped into your own projects and are fully customisable, and will give your 3D presentations an extra-special edge. MinosaLAB Kitchen PACK 1 The MinosaLAB Kitchen PACK 1 includes 39 stand out 3D models for your kitchen scenes, curated from six hugely popular brands (Armando Vicario, Fisher & Paykel, Franke, Gessi, Smeg and Zip).

Emstar Kitchens PYTHA Forerunners

Tony Galati of Emstar Kitchens in Thomastown, Victoria, was recognised for being an Australian ‘forerunner’ of PYTHA at the recent Pytha Partners Convention held in Sydney in October. Tony was acknowledged for his twenty-year dedication to the software during a special Gala event in the Sunset Room of Sydney’s iconic Luna Park. When he accepted his certificate (and a very nice bottle of plonk!), Tony was quick to grab the microphone and entertain the audience with his PYTHA story. As an enthusiastic young cabinetmaker in the 1990s, Tony was beginning to get the idea that technology would change his trade. When he discovered PYTHA software, Tony could see great potential in presenting kitchen and cabinet designs to clients in 3D. The investment was huge at the time, but this savvy business owner took the plunge and borrowed money to add PYTHA 3D CAD to his toolbelt. When the contract was done and dusted and his license was due to arrive, Tony shocked the PYTHA distributor when he asked what kind of computer he’d need to operate the software. Not only was he a software novice; he admitted he’d never owned a computer! Tony spent the first few weeks trying to get his head around navigating his first PC and learning how to use a complex 3D software package. The learning curve was steep, but in about three months he was doing renders for clients, and has never looked back! Pytha Partners Australia congratulate Tony on his vision and persistence, and look forward to the next decade with this PYTHA Pro. Keen to see how PYTHA can make a difference...

Official Australian Launch: PYTHA 3D CAD V23

The convention began with the official Australian launch of PYTHA 3D CAD V23. Guests had the privilege of learning all about the new version features ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’, with the developers flying in from Germany especially for the occasion. We asked those who attended to share what they’re most looking forward to in Version 23; here’s what they had to say: Techy Take-aways Good to see the programmer and be able to ask them questions directly. Learning a lot of small details with Willy. Machining and nesting capabilities, and report capabilities of Version 23. The profile and planning of angled pieces was a handy hint. The updates to the plot pages look fantastic. Editing in the plot. New modelling features to draw faster and more easily. Programmable fields within PYTHA. The possibility to personalise the drop-down menu Setting up interchangeable items like drawers by setting up the groups properly. The environment variables that can be used in RadioLab. That you can create just about anything! The simpler RadioLab interface gives me confidence to get it into our office and use it on a regular basis. Delegates also shared some great feedback about the event in general… Networking events 5 stars just for that view!! I had heaps of fun as I was on a table where I did not know anyone, so it gave me an opportunity to network with other companies. It was great to celebrate with the wider community also after some intensive workshops. Great location, great turnout. Food was great. Was good to meet other industry colleagues and discuss how they use PYTHA differently....

PYTHA @ LIGNA – huge woodworking fair attracts over 90,000!

PYTHA @ LIGNA – huge woodworking fair attracts over 90,000!

PYTHA Lab were thrilled to be standing alongside 1,500 exhibitors at LIGNA late in May. Held in Hannover, Germany, this incredible trade fair housed an enormous collection of machinery, plant and tools for the woodworking and timber processing industries, and saw an impressive 93,000 visitors pass through the gates. In a new initiative, LIGNA training workshops for joiners, cabinetmakers, carpenters and mobile assemblers were held in partnership with the Sprint Academy (Cologne, Germany). Participants were given the opportunity to put the manually-operated woodworking machines through their paces, under the watchful eye of expert technicians. The LIGNA program also featured a series of presentations on the processing of plastics and composites at the Robotation Academy. Many exhibitors featured displays showing how woodworking machines can work not only with wood, but also with plastics, composite panels, insulation and building materials. The fair was laid out with four thematic areas: Forestry Technology, Sawmill Technology, Wood-based Panel Production and Energy from Wood . The focus was on the production of wood as a raw material for products or energy generation, through the planning, felling and retrieval stages. The current state of the art use of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), or drones, proved a popular draw card, along with the latest forest surveying processes....
