    Edusim and Polyvision

    Drew and EdusimTalked to the Polyvision Interactive Whiteboard folkes today in Kansas City.  We are collaborating on a project that will place a Polyvision board at Greenbush & explore how we may integrate the Edusim application into their toolbar.  Ill keep you posted !

    Objective – Build an Anatomy Museum in 30 Minutes Using only Cobalt and the Google 3D Warehouse

    I came in right under 30 minutes:

    (1) Picked the buildings I wanted & Downloaded
    (2) Picked the models I wanted
    (3) loaded up Cobalt
    (4) Placed my building (this took a few trys – building I really wanted would not load)
    (5) Started placing the models … had a few restarts due to models “blowing up” the session half loaded only a few looked like I wanted them to … filled in with a few .ase files
    (6) All in all the imported worked great ! – not in the TMesh container still but that is manageable – half of the attempted KMZ models loaded (the others blew up the scene of gave error message.)

    Here is the result
