Thiago Costa's 3D cloud platform company Lagoa has announced it has acquired 3DTin, a browser-based 3D modeling tool. The acquisition will allow Lagoa to improve its scene editing capabilities in its online 3D rendering platform, as well as bring the active community from 3DTin to create online with greater speed.
“The browser-based nature of 3DTin makes it the perfect addition to Lagoa,” said Thiago Costa, CEO and co-founder of Lagoa. “We are excited to be giving our support to the growing community of makers, young creators and 3D printing prosumers that make up 3DTin’s user base. We also look forward to the new scene editing capabilities we will be able to bring to Lagoa as a result of the acquisition.”
3DTin Founder and Developer Jayesh Salvi said, “We are thrilled to be joining Lagoa, who share our passion for the accessibility and freedom of browser-based 3D tools. With Lagoa’s exceptional rendering product, 3DTin users will be able to do more with their 3D models. They will continue to enjoy all the great features they have grown to like in 3DTin and can expect more enhancements to their workflow, thanks to Lagoa.” Lagoa intends to maintain 3DTin as an independent solution. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
3DTin was the first company to enable browser-based modeling, in 2010. Free and easy-to-use, 3DTin is a 3D modeling environment that is perfect for beginners and young makers, but with a growing list of advanced features it is attracting professional 3D artists as well.
Lagoa utilizes the power of cloud processing for photoreal 3D visualization and collaboration, and allows developers to create their own applications via their API library. Fast and powerful, Lagoa enables 3D artists, designers, engineers, architects and advertisers to collaborate while rendering and finalizing spectacular 3D content. The company was founded in 2012 in Montreal, and has offices in Bonn and Boston. For more information,
