Announces OEM Partnership with SolidWorks Corporation

LA JOLLA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 21, 2008—, providers of CAD integrated reverse engineering software for measurement, inspection, 3D digitizing, and scanning physical objects, today announced it has entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with SolidWorks Corporation, manufacturer of SolidWorks® 3D CAD Software. Already a SolidWorks Gold Product Partner, the OEM agreement is the next logical step in ReverseEngineering.coms relationship with SolidWorks for integrating reverse engineering and inspection (RE&I) and design workflows.

Per the agreement, SolidWorks parts, assemblies, drawings, or any combination will be offered with SolidWorks mechanical CAD software bundled as a value-add premium product option within ReverseEngineering.coms family of reverse engineering and measurement software suites. Providing a comprehensive bundled solution, ReverseEnginering.coms technology is accessed from within the SolidWorks user interface and is compatible with both laser and touch probe CMMs. The premium bundle is especially well-suited for using inspection and measurement data for design purposes.

Our agreement with SolidWorks brings a cost-effective, high-performance choice of CAD modeling features into our already diverse menu of choices, said Christiann Moore, director, Partnering with SolidWorks Corporation enables us to provide our customers a more competitive product and help accelerate their time to market. We are looking forward to being the first to provide this solution to our industry as we take an active role in growing the reverse engineering software marketplace to a larger number of potential customers who can benefit from the technology.

Combining SolidWorks with the family of reverse engineering and inspection products will allow engineers to get their job done faster by seamlessly reverse engineering and inspecting directly into the SolidWorks modeling engine. Companies will experience faster return on investment by keeping their engineers in the SolidWorks environment, bypassing the loss of data from IGES translation. Directly scanning into SolidWorks allows the engineer to create truly native complex surface and solid models in real time, said Earl Hasz, OEM technical manager from SolidWorks.

Meeting the needs of the reverse engineering marketplace has been our mission since 1985, said Braxton Carter, chief technology officer, In the future we plan to bring this new reverse engineering, measurement and CAD modeling bundle to all users of CMM hardware such as Brown & Sharpe, Mitutoyo, Starrett, Zeiss, and others. Leveraging the power of the and SolidWorks partnership will enable more customers worldwide to shorten the reverse engineering and inspection cycle by scanning or inspecting directly in SolidWorks.

The product bundle will be available for delivery and support Q3, 2008 directly from ReverseEngineering.coms eCommerce site.
