Microsoft Acquired Simplygon to Stengthen Its 3D for Everyone Proposition

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Microsoft acquired Simplygon, a premier developer of automatic 3D data-optimization solutions. This acquisition accelerates our 3D For Everyone vision and strategy, which Microsoft introduced with the Windows 10 Creators Update at our event this past October in New York.

Simplygon’s technology and talent will strengthen Microsoft’s position in 3D creation, making it easier to capture, create and share in 3D. It builds on and extends our aspirations to empower a new wave of creativity with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Paint 3D and our online creator community at Remix3D.com.

city1Simplygon was developed by Donya Labs AB, a privately held company based in Sweden. Donya was founded in 2006 with the aim to be the premier developer of automatic 3D data-optimization solutions. Simplygon is a leader in 3D game optimization, dedicated to helping creators and users of 3D data across industries optimize content pipelines and streamline workflows.

The leadership team, led by CEO Matt Connors, founder and CTO Ulrik Lindahl and co-founder Koshi Hamedi, bring a depth of knowledge around 3D creation optimization, and we’re excited to welcome the team to Microsoft.

The Simplygon leadership team shares their thoughts on its own website. “Throughout our journey, we’ve been laser focused on helping developers push the boundaries of 3D,” wrote CEO Matt Connors, Founder & CTO Ulrik Lindahl, and Co-Founder Koshi Hamedi. “From our early days delivering advanced level-of-detail solutions, to the adoption of Simplygon SDK by most leading AAA game development studios, and our more recent expansion into enterprise AR/VR, Simplygon has made automatic 3D data-optimization increasingly more accessible to developers. Our next challenge is 3D For Everyone, the ultimate accessibility! We’re thrilled to join forces with Microsoft to make this happen. Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way – our customers, partners, investors and employees.
