SpaceClaim Releases New Products to Enable 3D for All
SpaceClaim LT and LTX offer the 2D world a complementary 3D solid modeling
solution that provides unprecedented simplicity and flexibility
CONCORD, MA – 09 January 2008 – SpaceClaim Corporation, a leading provider of 3D design solutions, today announced the introduction of its SpaceClaim LT (USD $695) and LTX (USD $895) 3D design products, and in the process, has established state-of-the-art solid modeling as a companion to existing design workflow. For the first time, anybody can work in 3D without the hindrances of the traditional CAD learning curve and associated CAD costs.
SpaceClaim LT and LTX are ideal for designers, architects and engineers who already have efficient and cost-effective 2D tools, as well as hobbyists who would take advantage of affordable 3D design software. SpaceClaim’s general-purpose solid modeling adds value to existing processes, enabling customers to combine 2D and 3D techniques to enhance the vast breadth of use cases where 2D tools - such as the AutoCAD family of products - flourish.
SpaceClaim LT and LTX feature the ability to:
Quickly create 3D solid models
Open, edit, and document 3D solid models from colleagues, suppliers, and customers
Bring 2D drawings into 3D to improve communication and accuracy
SpaceClaim LT and LTX leverage the identical software architecture and technology of the company’s flagship design system, SpaceClaim Professional 2007+, providing users a revolutionary solid modeling environment with a modern user interface. Unlike traditional history-based modelers that require operators to be trained in feature programming, SpaceClaim delivers a radical new paradigm for creating 3D solid models. SpaceClaim models can easily be moved into popular 2D and 3D offerings, where they can be further documented, manipulated, and rendered.
“I’m thrilled about SpaceClaim LT and LTX for the metal working industry,” said Dan White, President of Keuka Studios, a custom fabricator of architectural iron work. “Much of this industry is based in 2D, and SpaceClaim appears to be the first 3D tool that’s practical for our business.”
“SpaceClaim is accessible to all designers, regardless of their trade, while traditional solid modeling systems tend to require dedicated operators running domain-specific, vertical applications,” said Mike Payne, SpaceClaim Chief Executive Officer. “We’re making 3D as straightforward to use as 2D and therefore we expect it to become as ubiquitous.”
The main differences between SpaceClaim’s products are import and export capabilities, as well as some options and services that are available with SpaceClaim Professional 2007+. SpaceClaim LT provides import of STEP, IGES, DXF, DWG, BMP, JPG and PNG file formats and export of DXF, DWG, XAML, STL, VRML, BMP, JPG and PNG file formats. SpaceClaim LTX provides these capabilities as well as export of STEP and IGES files for other 3D systems.
SpaceClaim LT and LTX customers can apply 50% of the cost of SpaceClaim LT or LTX toward the purchase of SpaceClaim Professional 2007+ within the first six months. SpaceClaim 2007+ includes a range of modules such as 3D data exchange (including Rhino and other popular mechanical CAD formats), CATIA, JT Open, sheet metal, TraceParts standard parts library, ECAD and ANSYS integration.
Available immediately, SpaceClaim LT and LTX are offered in English, Japanese, German, French, Korean, Italian, Traditional and Simplified Chinese languages and can be purchased online through SpaceClaim and its network of resellers. Regional pricing is available online.
