Siemens is using Frame to stream a 45 day trial version of Solid Edge.

Frame, the cloud platform that lets users run ‘any software in a browser’, is to take its end user service into public beta on July 8.

This will allow anyone to install and run their own Windows applications – including 3D CAD/CAM/CAE software – in the cloud. Plans will start at under $10 per month.

The move to public beta, which also marks the arrival of product enhancements and expanded distribution, coincides with a $10m investment from Columbus Nova Technology Partners (CNTP), Bain Capital Ventures and SQN Venture Partners.

The BOXX APEXX 4 7402 (left) and APEXX 2 3402 (right).

The new BOXX APEXX 2 3402 and APEXX 4 7402 overclocked workstations both have 8 CPU cores capable of exceeding 4GHz.

According to the workstation specialist, this makes them ideal for both single-threaded and multi-threaded tasks including 3D modelling, animation, rendering, and simulation.

“APEXX offers the best of both worlds,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of marketing and business development. “They alleviate the single-threaded bottlenecks found in Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, and other professional applications, while also providing 33GHz of aggregate frequency for faster rendering and simulation.”
