Informative Graphics Releases Low-Cost 3D CAD Viewer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Nov. 29, 2005— Informative Graphics Corp. (IGC), a leader in content visualization, secure publishing and collaboration technology, announced that its new ModelPress Desktop is now shipping. ModelPress Desktop is a low-cost application that views a variety of 3D file formats in a common, easy-to-use interface. Supported formats include AutoCAD 3D DWF/DWG/DXF, Inventor, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, IGES, STL, VRML, OpenHSF, XGL, SAT, 3DS and IGC's content secure 3DF format. Pro/E, Wildfire and Step formats are provided via the ModelPress Granite option.

ModelPress Desktop increases the format support offered by IGC's very popular ModelPress Reader, a free 3D viewer to view STL, VRML, HSF and 3DF file formats. 3DF files can be created by the free ModelPress Publisher. All three products are available for download/purchase at: www.modelpress.com.

ModelPress Desktop views 3D CAD assemblies and allows visualization of cross sections, cutaways, exploded views and dimensioning/measurement. Users can identify and/or locate parts visually by name and show part volume, mass, center and other part attributes. ModelPress Desktop provides controls for interactive conversion of 3D models to IGC's Visual Rights-protected 3DF format and is able to publish portions of the model assembly with cutaways and dimension markups or as exploded view representations.

The benefits of distributing CAD designs as 3DF files include persistent file security, smaller file size, content expiration controls, copyright banner options and the ability to restrict functions such as measure, explode and cross section.

ModelPress Desktop is available for 15-day trial download from the www.modelpress.com Web site. The pricing for ModelPress Desktop is $99/license and the Granite version is $195/license.
