SpaceClaim extends 3D modeling to engineersWritten by Dan Comand Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:38
SpaceClaim announced SpaceClaim 2010, the sixth release of the company's groundbreaking 3D Direct Modeling solution. SpaceClaim has enabled sales, concept, and simulation engineers to rapidly and effectively use 3D to solve business, engineering, and geometry problems.
"All manufacturers today are under increased pressure to eliminate waste, streamline collaboration, and increase productivity through the product development cycle," said Chris Randles, SpaceClaim President and CEO. "These lean product development initiatives have forced a reevaluation of current tools and practices. SpaceClaim is rapidly being chosen as the tool to maximize design options early in the development process with outstanding results. Our customers have confirmed an ROI with SpaceClaim of well under six months, far surpassing the ROI of traditional CAD tools in this space. With the new release of our 3D Direct Modeler, we continue to help our customers win more business, shorten the time to market, and drive new levels of innovation."
SpaceClaim has broadened the use of 3D as a business tool for engineers engaged in new business development and early concept development.
Throughout the supply chain, manufacturers are improving how they do business by using SpaceClaim to optimize models for rapid prototyping and manufacturing, enabling engineers to:
- Scale, split, fuse, and thicken models for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing
- Create in-process manufacturing models and design jigs and fixtures accordingly
- Convert solid and plastic parts into sheet metal
