More than a 3D toolkit

Comprehensive development platform

The Open Inventor SDK is much more than just a library of functions and a reference manual. Many tools are available to help you get started quickly and get your job done faster: advanced user’s guide, documented demos, fast start screencasts, training, consulting, and a skilled and reactive technical support service.

Open Inventor is developed and maintained by a highly qualified professional team and is evolving on a regular basis, enhancing the product to integrate the latest techniques, addressing customers’ specific requests and providing timely fixes for potential issues.

Effective business model

A business partner

Developing a successful partnership with a third-party software vendor such as a 3D technology provider also includes the certainty that it will be in the long run more profitable than developing an in-house solution.

Committed to your success,  Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed a flexible licensing model that efficiently supports the adoption of Open Inventor by your development team and the deployment of built applications in phase with your business strategy.
