"Our partnership with xPLM demonstrates how SpaceClaim's CAD-neutral solution is also PLM-neutral. The inclusion of the SpaceClaim PLM Integration Module greatly expands the scope of PLM data that can be accessed and leveraged within SpaceClaim," said Michael McGuinness, COO of SpaceClaim Corp. "Many of our clients need to work within their corporate PLM environments, and our partnership with xPLM Solution, one of the leading providers of CAD/PLM integrations, enables seamless integration for SpaceClaim Professional 2007 with leading PLM systems such as SAP PLM, Teamcenter, and Agile."
"We are excited to partner with SpaceClaim and make available our J2xPLM Integration Platform and PLM connectors to SpaceClaim clients. SpaceClaim's open XML data format offered ready access to the design data and accelerated our integration efforts. xPLM Solution has been providing CAD/PLM integrations for more than 20 years. A good integration between product lifecycle management (PLM) systems and 3D applications is a prerequisite to effective and efficient engineering processes. This is even more important now as distributed design and engineering teams must collaborate across global supply chains." said Karl Wachtel, Managing Director of xPLM Solution. "SpaceClaim is filling a need in the market by providing an intuitive 3D design solution for design contributors that complements a client's existing CAD and PLM systems. We look forward to supporting their growing presence in the marketplace."
