Tri-D Technologies Partners with Dassault Systemes

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- Oct 02, 2013 -- Tri-D Technologies Inc., makers of the ExactFlat suite of 3D CAD products, announces that it has partnered with Dassault Systemes (EURONEXT PARIS: DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. As a result of the partnership, Tri-D Technologies has become an approved SOLIDWORKS Solution Partner, supporting the SOLIDWORKS 2013 3D design portfolio.

ExactFlat is a software product that makes it faster and less complicated to design, develop, prototype, cost and manufacture products that incorporate composites, industrial fabrics or technical textiles.

"SOLIDWORKS is a natural fit for our premium product, ExactFlat Design Studio," stated Eaton Donald, President of Tri-D Technologies. "Firstly, integrating ExactFlat's proprietary tools with the powerful parametric design environment of SOLIDWORKS sets a new benchmark for sewn product design software. Secondly, the SOLIDWORKS global ecosystem of resellers and millions of trained users makes this offering easy to implement and maintain as these manufacturers continue to seek productivity gains and cost savings."

ExactFlat extends the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS to enable: automatic flattening of 3D CAD files into 2D flat patterns; the addition of design features such as notching, seam allowances, and grain lines; automated (and parametrically-linked) nesting; and drag-and-drop documentation, costing, bill of materials, and manufacturing routing.

"Offering our customers an integrated experience is critical to saving them time and money," said Nick Iwaskow, Senior Alliances & Partnership Manager, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systemes. "By integrating ExactFlat's flattening, nesting, costing and documentation features developed specifically for sewn product manufacturers with SOLIDWORKS' powerful design environment, our customers can achieve unprecedented productivity gains."
