Mirage Technologies is acquired by the Topcon Group

We have the pleasure to announce that Mirage Technologies has been acquired by the Topcon Group, which develops high technology products for the health, mapping and positioning sectors.

You can see here the official press release.

As part of the Topcon family, Mirage will continue developing advanced technology products for 3D visualization and analysis of massive georeferenced data.

Mirage will also continue supporting existing products like our plugins for Petrel.

We are very grateful for the confidence of our partners and customers along these fruitful years.

3D Publisher 1.0 for Petrel 2015 released!

We are happy to announce the release of our new plugin, 3D Publisher for Petrel.

   

Petrel is the leading software for oil and gas reservoir modelization by Schlumberger. As an Ocean partner, Mirage Technologies already sells the PointCloudViz LiDAR plugin on this platform, allowing the workflow integration of very large point cloud datasets.

Now Mirage has developed a new general-purpose plugin, 3D Publisher, which provides Petrel users with powerful 3D content exporting functionality to exploit and distribute 3D data, models and simulation results in a variety of formats and media:

  • Electronic documents, using standard 3D PDF supported by free Adobe Reader software.
  • Web pages, using JavaScript supported in all main Web browsers.
  • Computer videos and animations, by exporting 3D formats like OBJ, 3DS and FBX, supported by 3D animation software like Autodesk 3DMax and Unity.
  • Interactive viewing using free open source tools like Open Scene Graph (OSG), by exporting OSG binary and text formats.
  • 3D printing, via STL format (for monochrome printing) and Collada format (for color printing).

 

What you see is what you get

3D Publisher uses a simple one-click interface to export the visible content of a Petrel 3D Window, using the same styles and options.

The exported data is structured in a node hierarchy, so the objects can be manipulated separately.

Distribute content for free, no strings attached

As seen in the images above, by using 3D Publisher you can distribute Petrel content with free viewers, without any license fee. In addition, professional 3D video animations can be created via 3DS, OBJ, FBX and other formats.

Interactive models can be distributed via:

(*) Install Adobe Reader. Right-click on the above PDF link and choose "Save link as..." to save the PDF instead of opening it in the Web browser.

  • Embedded in a Web page, by exporting to .osgjs format, as shown in this example:
