Altair Extends Use of Siemens' D-Cubed Software

PLANO, Texas, October 22, 2013 – Altair Engineering, Inc. (“Altair”), a
leading global provider of software for optimizing the analysis, management and
visualization of business and engineering information, has licensed Siemens’ D-Cubed™
software components for use throughout its product offerings. Altair selected
D-Cubed 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (DCM) and D-Cubed 3D DCM software from
Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business unit to provide
the geometric constraint solving capability that is fundamental to many modern
computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software
applications.

Altair currently uses 2D DCM in its solidThinking Inspire® software, a tool
that generates structurally efficient design concepts. This new agreement
extends the rights to use 2D DCM in applications throughout the Altair
HyperWorks® product line and beyond, and adds the same rights for 3D DCM.

"Having already integrated and released D-Cubed 2D DCM in solidThinking
Inspire®, and being a long-term Parasolid software licensee for solidThinking
Evolve®, we were well aware of the impressive quality of Siemens’ PLM Components
software as well as the outstanding technical support that Siemens provides,”
said Massimo Fariello, Senior Vice President, Software Technology Alliances and
Strategies, Altair. “This new agreement provides the framework to leverage
Siemens software components more broadly in our development of high-quality
digital product design and engineering simulation solutions.”

“We are very pleased that a company of Altair’s caliber has decided to base
future development projects on our D-Cubed 2D DCM and 3D DCM geometric
constraint solvers,” said Paul Sicking, Senior Vice President, Chief Technology
Office, Siemens PLM Software. “This decision by Altair is a significant
endorsement of Siemens’ strategy as a global supplier of open software
solutions. Siemens PLM Software’s position as the leading provider of PLM
component software is based on providing superior technology and developing
long-term mutually beneficial relationships with our customers.”
