solution, in industries such as consumer goods, footwear, industrial
design and medical - it's an easy-to-use tool that can reduce the
complexity of working with scan data, both medical and consumer based
origins, and offers anyone designing complex, organic designs a
complementary design solution. For those companies with unique designs
that necessitate the combination of organic designs with parametric
modeling, this tool can provide a streamlined path from design to
manufacturing," stated Tim Preston, Vice President of CADD Edge. "It's
an exciting tool that extends the creativity options available to

'digital clay,' as they model and sculpt their products in three
dimensions. Designed with tools that designers and modelers find
intuitive, the FreeForm systems enable users to quickly be productive
and achieve greater design flexibility, especially in creating organic
shapes, than with traditional CAD systems. The systems'
interoperability allows it to become an integral part of a company's
workflow--whether product designs are started with a sketch, a scan or
an existing file and whether they are output for rapid prototyping or
to a traditional CAD/CAM system for downstream engineering or
Thousands of consumer and industrial products are being designed
with FreeForm Modeling systems worldwide. Customers include Fortune
