History

INV3RSION (pronounced "inversion") was founded in 2003 with a mission to apply 3D visualization to scientific and engineering problems.  We've worked with academic institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and small businesses to help them realize their goals.  We've taken on projects in their entirety, and we've augmented existing teams.

 

Name

The word "inversion" has a dual meaning: It is the name of a mathematical operation encountered in 3D matrix math, and it also means "to turn inside out or upside down". We feel that our name conveys both our 3D programming skills and the innovative solutions that we produce.
