CINCINATTI, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- think3, a leading supplier of industrial design and product development solutions, announced today that 01consulting, a sales and marketing services firm based in Paris (, has released market research data demonstrating that think3 is one of the top Mechanical Computer-Aided Design (MCAD) software vendors in the European mid-range market.

The report, "MCAD Market Europe 2005," studies the European MCAD segment of the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market by country, industry, category and software vendor. Through quantitative analysis based on 2004 data, the report compares trends in two segments of the MCAD market: the high-end and the mid-range, and presents an outlook for the market in the future.

    Key findings include:

    -- think3 ranks #1 in revenue in Italy's MCAD market.
    -- think3 is one of the top mid-range MCAD vendors in Europe -- along with
       SolidWorks and Autodesk.
    -- think3 is doing very well among its peers and fuelled growth in the
       mid-range segment.
    -- think3 is holding steady against the bigger players such as Dassault.
    -- The MCAD market, still the biggest segment of the euro 10 billion
       global PLM market, is a particularly dynamic market in Europe.

The report also touches upon another strength of think3 technology by recommending that MCAD users evaluate best-of-breed mid-range solutions together with best-of-breed Product Development Management (PDM) offerings in order to achieve the considerable gains provided by an integrated solution.

"As this recent European mid-market MCAD analysis report confirms, think3 has established itself as a key player in the MCAD market in Europe," said Joe Costello, chairman and chief executive officer, think3. "For many years, MCAD solutions have been the foundation of our business, and now continue to grow as we provide more complete PLM solutions and services to the middle market. We continue to grow market share and to strengthen our leadership position in North America and globally, and are committed to maintaining it through additional investments in solutions for automotive design and continued support for our partners."

    Recent think3 technology development highlights include:

    -- think3 added functionality to thinkteam, the product data management
       (PDM) component of its thinkPLM(R) suite. thinkteam now complements
       Autodesk's Inventor(R) with a module that helps designers manage
       product information, specifically 3D models, and integrate existing
       functions without changing operating methods.
    -- think3 entered into a strategic collaboration with Cadenas that
       integrates Cadenas parts management into the 3D CAD solution
