Schott Systeme Innovates With CAD "Clipart"

The wealth of free WMF and 'clipart' graphics on the Internet provide many managers with an instant effect for their company powerpoint presentations. However these cliparts still remain as 'flat' 2D graphics, not really of a quality desired for professional corporate marketing material.

In a move to help companies liven up their presentations, German CAD/CAM developer Schott Systeme have taken an innovative step by enabling its CAD users to directly import, alter and even convert WMF/cliparts into 3D.

Included as standard within the 'Business Manager Graphics' version of their CAD software 'Pictures by PC', these cliparts are firstly imported and converted directly into vector geometry complete with all outline contours and shaded areas. As CAD geometry, these cliparts can then be altered in shape and colour, as well as being converted into 3D for use within Schott Systeme's inbuilt rendering and animation suite.

Simple but extremely effective, this process is now enabling managers with little or no CAD knowledge to take any clipart from the internet, and with only a few clicks produce corporate presentations of a quality that would normally be purchased from graphic design agencies.

About Pictures by PC 'Business Manager Graphics'

Based on Schott Systeme's 2D/3D CAD package 'Pictures by PC', the �2,800 software provides companies with a platform to cater for almost any type of graphic, from bitmaps and WMF graphics through to 2D CAD, 3D solid/surface models, rendering and animation. Additional parametric tools also enable the instant creation of corporate graphics from text based presentation lists, as well as graphical project structuring and management.
