ImpactXoft To Debut IX Style At IDSA Industrial Design Conference

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oct. 21, 2004— ImpactXoft today announced that it will debut IX(R) Style, its first solution for industrial designers, at the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) national conference in Pasadena, California. Conference attendees are invited to join ImpactXoft for a complimentary breakfast on Friday, October 29th, at 8:00 a.m. in the Fountain Ballroom of the Westin hotel. Company experts will demonstrate the unique styling and modeling capabilities of the newly released product and how easily designers can create imaginative products while interfacing with professionals in other disciplines using the products in the IX SPeeD(R) Suite.

As part of the IX SPeeD Suite, IX Style is specialized to meet the needs of industrial designers exploring ideas and developing products for the electronics and electrical (E&E) and consumer goods markets. It features an integrated package of freeform styling tools and 3D modeling tools to help product designers transform their creative concepts into production-ready designs. IX Style features the following specialized toolsets:

-- Tracer - helps artists utilize their 2D artwork (digital or paper) in a 3D modeling environment

-- Envision and Shape - affords designers the flexibility to use their imagination and freely transform creative concepts into viable 3D designs

-- Advanced Surface Modeling - combines G2 subdivision surface precision with fluid, aesthetic shape design

-- IX Healing Assistant - performs surface analysis and repair

-- Rendering - produces sophisticated, high quality visuals

Along with the powerful styling-focused toolsets, IX Style also provides the full-fledged 3D modeling capability of the

IX(R) Design solution for product engineering, including toolsets for functional design, sketching, surfacing, assembly design, drafting, generative drawing, materials and data exchange. Due to the collaborative architecture of the IX SPeeD Suite solutions, designers can also take advantage of a Simultaneous Product Development (SPD) environment to productively work in parallel with other disciplines including product engineering, mold and tooling design, and tool manufacturing.

"We are extremely excited to introduce IX Style to the industrial design community," said Attilio Rimoldi, ImpactXoft president and CEO. "Not only does this new solution provide designers the flexibility to utilize their artistic talents while exploring product ideas and prototypes, it also gives them a better way to work in parallel with professionals in other disciplines to streamline the entire product development process and bring creativity into the forefront."
