SpaceClaim Engineer 2012 Named Product of the Month by NASA Tech Briefs
We are pleased to announce that NASA Tech Briefs has named SpaceClaim Engineer 2012 "Product of the Month" for May 2012, making it eligible for Product of the Year.
SpaceClaim Engineer includes "new capabilities in reverse engineering, model preparation for simulation, manufacturing, and data reuse. A SketchUp conversion feature detects regions where SketchUp's approximated, facetted geometry was derived from analytic surfaces such as cylinders and cones, and automatically replaces them with precise geometry."

"We're using SpaceClaim to prepare geometries from multiple 3D CAD systems for simulation and to transfer it between the individual CAD systems, with excellent results. For us, it is important to use an intuitively operable tool to simplify geometry and to also generate complex models without having to learn the complex functionalities of other CAD tools."
