March 19, 2008 -- ASCON Group, developer and integrator of award-winning solution for Mechanical CAD — KOMPAS-3D, today launches its international Educational Program. This strategical program aims at training and popularization of professional CAD solutions among future specialists, designers and engineers all over the world.
According to the project ASCON to supply Educational Institutions with the full capability of professional, powerful, effective and easy-to-learn Mechanical CAD Solution — KOMPAS-3D. Most every kind of Educational Institutions (including Schools, Colleges, Vocational Schools, Universities, Training Centers) are able to get the latest 3D as well as 2D CAD Modellers and all the wide range of add-ons, novelties such as photorendering, kinematic and dynamic analyses, template manager, 3D-Model recognition system and many others for the highly discounted price. Initially was KOMPAS only in English and Russian languages available, now it can be studied also in German, French and Czech.
Educational License of KOMPAS-3D includes:
Newest Version of KOMPAS-3D V9 ; Network hardware key (dongle); FREE KOMPAS-3D LT version for students home usage; Animation Add-On for Motion simulation in KOMPAS-3D; 3D Model Recognition System for import/export 2D/3D models from other CAD solutions; Partnership Applications and Add-ons upon agreement; First year Upgrade and Support.
