Nextech AR Solutions Corp. (CSE: NTAR, OTCQB: NEXCF) announced the launch of its revolutionary solution Toggle3Da new software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that enables the creation, design, configuration and deployment of large-scale 3D models.
The provider of augmented reality (AR) experience technology and 3D model services said it sees the launch as a “major step” on its way to becoming the dominant 3D model platform and looks forward to it. for Toggle3D to become a new high-margin growth engine.
Readers can experience the beta platform and try out the technology by visiting the Toggle3D website.

According to the Metaverse company, Toggle3D is a standalone web application that allows product designers, 3D artists, marketers, and e-commerce site owners to create, customize, and publish high-quality 3D models and experiences without no technical or 3D design knowledge required.
The tech company believes that Toggle3D is a potential game changer for the manufacturing and design industry, as it provides a viable solution for converting large computer-aided design (CAD) files into lightweight 3D models. at affordable prices and on a large scale.
CAD is a function of product engineering and industrial designers use CAD software like AutoCAD and SolidWorks to design products. The Toggle3D platform leverages AI so raw CAD files can be converted into photorealistic, fully textured 3D models at scale. Toggle3D technology creates optimized 3D meshes suitable for 3D and AR applications.
The use of CAD files is ubiquitous in manufacturing in the automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, civil engineering and construction, electrical, electronics, pharmaceutical and consumer goods. The CAD market, quantified by the amount spent on creating CAD files, is estimated at $11 billion by 2023, per BIS Research.
Toggle3D uses Nextech AR’s patent-pending artificial intelligence technology to enable the conversion of CAD files into large-scale 3D models, as well as the company’s ARitize Configurator product. Creators can easily turn their CAD files into 3D models or import their existing 3D models into the platform. Within the platform, creators will be able to carry out three types of projects: 3D product configurators, virtual photography and product demonstrations which will be deployed over the next few weeks.
To gain early adopters, Toggle3D will be available through both a free trial and a pro SaaS license. A free license will give users just enough functionality to try out the platform and experiment with the technology. By upgrading to a pro plan, users will get full access to the entire platform, which includes unlimited projects, materials, larger file uploads, more storage, editing tools advanced features and an extensive preset library.
Readers can watch Nextech CEO Evan Gappelberg discuss the new Toggle3D product and give a live demo of the platform here.
ARitize Configurator was previously only available as a managed service, but is now also available as a self-service product through the Toggle3D platform.
To use the product configurator in Toggle3D, a user must bring an existing CAD file or 3D model. Once the 3D model is created or uploaded, the configuration tool makes it easy and seamless to change colors, materials and individual parts, all while engaging 3D in real time, the company said.
The configurator can also be used as a prototyping tool, used internally to make or communicate design decisions and gain buy-in from stakeholders.
Nextech has offices in New York, Toronto, Dallas and San Jose.
