Conversion and Streaming Backend for HOOPS Communicator

One of the key advantages of HOOPS Communicator is the flexibility it gives developers when it comes to deployment. After installing the product, you are essentially getting a set of libraries and executables for efficient streaming and CAD conversion and it is up to you (with our help if needed) to integrate those optimally into your web-based application.

When we developed the backend for our own internal HOOPS Communicator cloud demos (including we had to embark on a similar task as a lot of our partners, to essentially build a scalable and region-aware backend for converting and viewing CAD models (in our case running on Amazon AWS). We decided to release this code in the form of a Node.js project. It is still work-in-progress but we feel it is already quite useful.
