The pace at which the world is changing sometimes seems too fast. Several industries are scrambling for the next innovation to optimize, foster collaboration and maximize efficiency. It is in this dynamic environment that a new transformative technology is born, a digital twin. In simplest terms, it is the virtual replica of the physical asset, process, or system.

One of the pioneers in this technology, and someone revolutionizing the business of surveying and construction projects, is SmartShape. Founded back in 2010 when Aerys was created by Jean-Marc Le Roux — whose passions include drawing and mathematics.

“I designed my first 3D engine when I was studying advanced mathematics at preparatory school. A little later, instead of completing my engineering training with an end-of-study internship, I wanted to make this project a reality, and I did it by creating Aerys with two friends.”

Today, the SmartShape digital twin is redefining collaboration, data management and project execution. Real-time integrated data in an inclusive digital 3D twin enables fluid communication irrespective of geographic location and internet connectivity.

Michelle, a naval designer, praises SmartShape’s ability to streamline processes and manage timelines efficiently through features like real-time collaboration and CAD model fusion: “SmartShape is indispensable for my daily operations,” while David, a naval surveyor, echoes this sentiment: “as it allows me to efficiently retrieve information, manage tasks, and update them dynamically during my inspections.”

The magic of digital twins lies in their ability to pull data from any source and have it brought together in one secure, easily accessible space. This provides teams with instant high-quality safe decision-making tools. SmartShape remains at the forefront of this change, innovating toward a smarter, more pragmatic solution for surveying, construction, and other industries.
