SpaceClaim and SofTech Announce Integration of SpaceClaim Engineer and CADRA

New Integrated Solution Streamlines CADRA Users’ Move into 3D Environment

CONCORD, MA, and LOWELL, MA, May 16, 2012 - SpaceClaim, the leader in easy and accessible 3D CAD programs for engineering, mechanical design, and manufacturing, and SofTech, Inc., a proven provider of engineering software solutions, announced the integration of SpaceClaim Engineer and CADRA, a full-featured mechanical design and drafting program.

CADRA users will be able to produce 3D detailed models quickly and efficiently, integrate solid modeling with existing drafting workflows, and easily import data from any CAD system via SpaceClaim's state-of-the-art data translators. This combined solution is available immediately and sold and supported by SofTech. "Our bi-directional Connector technology lets CADRA users easily and seamlessly work in 3D with the ease of use they have become accustomed to in CADRA," said Bob Anthonyson, VP of Business Development at SofTech. "SpaceClaim Engineer is a cost effective and easy-to-learn 3D solution for the thousands of engineers, designers, and drafters that rely on CADRA each day for their design work.

The SpaceClaim Engineer and CADRA bundle is exactly what our market needs to expand an organization's access to 3D technology beyond the more difficult to use, parametric feature-based 3D tools. It also adds digital prototyping capabilities to their environment and can reduce design costs, improve design quality, and decrease time-to-market." "The selection of SpaceClaim Engineer by SofTech is another example of how SpaceClaim 3D Direct Modeling is expanding the use of 3D CAD throughout the product development process," commented Rich Moore, VP of Business Development at SpaceClaim. "CADRA bundled with SpaceClaim Engineer marries the best of the 2D world with the best of the 3D world.

Not only will our SpaceClaim customers be able to create detailed documentation in CADRA, but they will also be able to easily turn existing 2D drawings and concept sketches created in CADRA into SpaceClaim parts and assemblies, providing even more value to their existing investment in CADRA."
