March 20, 2012 - Tri-D Technologies, makers of ExactFlat 3D-to-2D CAD software, announced that Applied Engineering Inc. is the latest company to select ExactFlat as a key strategic partner. ExactFlat software is a complete rethink of the CAD-to-cutter workflow for manufacturers working with industrial fabrics and flexible materials, making it faster, simpler, and more flexible than ever before.
“We believe that for manufactures designing and manufacturing with industrial fabrics, ExactFlat is a critical business and operations tool”, says Steven McLendon, Executive Vice President of ExactFlat. “Manufacturers that make the transition from 2D to 3D design realize meaningful improvements in speed, accuracy, quality and flexibility. Applied Engineering has seen their customers benefit from this transition first-hand, making them a perfect fit for our growing partner network.”
ExactFlat is being used by leading manufacturers to eliminate much of the manual effort from the traditional design and engineering workflow. Purpose-built for the unique properties of fabrics, ExactFlat’s core algorithms have been developed over the course of 7+ years to automate the creation of production-ready 2D flat patterns.
“We’re working very closely with ExactFlat to execute our sales and support strategy to bring this game-changing product to our customers in the Midwest”, says David Johanning, Director, Engineering Technology at Applied Engineering. “Our customers are asking for solutions that enable them to improve quality and respond more quickly to customer requests, all while better managing costs. We’re hearing this over-and-over again across many industries, including marine, automotive, furniture and apparel. We’re ecstatic to support our customers with ExactFlat.”
