NGRAIN announces open-source Viewer for Android

July 13, 2016 – NGRAIN announced the availability of NGRAIN Viewer for Android, an app for Android tablets and smart glass devices, enabling the deployment of industrial 3D content created with NGRAIN Producer Pro.

NGRAIN Viewer for Android offers organizations working with heavy equipment, assemblies, and other industrial assets in the field, the opportunity to explore possible use cases for smart glasses and 3D content without the need to invest in the development of a mobile 3D app. NGRAIN is further making Viewer for Android open source, offering R&D teams and developers an excellent starting point to customize and create their own industrial applications.

With NGRAIN Viewer for Android, NGRAIN provides the source code to bootstrap a 3D app for Android, load 3D content, view animations, play step-by-step tasks, and interact with content from NGRAIN Producer Pro. Developers can then quickly develop a customized 3D industrial app for Android by modifying and extending the NGRAIN source code. Using NGRAIN Producer Pro, organizations can create 3D content for these custom apps without the need for expertise in 3D graphics, custom scripting, or further programming.
