IMSI/Design Adopts Spatial's 3D Components Across Product Line

BROOMFIELD, Colo. & NOVATO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 29, 2008— Spatial Corp., a market-leading provider of 3D components for technology applications, and IMSI/Design, the developer of the #1 best-selling CAD in retail, today announced a new, long-term agreement to expand licensing of Spatials 3D component technology throughout the TurboCAD® product line. The new agreement covers the use of the 3D ACIS® Modeler with 3D ACIS PHL V5 and 3D Deformable Modeling extensions, as well as 3D InterOp translators.

We have been using the ACIS modeler in the TurboCAD product line for many versions. We have been impressed with its reliability and robustness. ACIS and its extensions help our software developers bring new features to market more rapidly, stated Bob Mayer, COO of IMSI/Design. To maintain our competitive edge, we decided to expand the relationship and leverage Spatials products and support across our product line. The goal is to gain further development efficiencies and be better able to respond to our customers requests for new functionality in existing and future products.

Spatials 3D components and Professional Services accelerate 3D application development. Spatials ACIS Modeler is the industry's leading commercially available geometric modeling component. ACIS extensions include 3D ACIS PHL V5 for fast, accurate 2D hidden line drawings of 3D models; 3D ACIS Defeaturing for advanced feature recognition to automatically identify and remove model features based on user-specified criteria; and 3D ACIS Deformable Modeling for interactive sculpting tools for creating and manipulating free-form curves and surfaces. 3D InterOp Translators enable integration of native and industry-standard 3D data formats between design, manufacturing and data management systems. 3D Visualization components provide core graphics infrastructure and functionality for 3D applications. Spatial also offers Professional Services to support all aspects of a customers software development including code review, program management and application coding.

IMSI/Designs flagship product, TurboCAD® Professional, delivers the power of ACIS to architectural and mechanical engineers and designers with exceptional price-performance. The new licensing agreement extends across both the TurboCAD Windows and Macintosh product lines.

The key to our success is forming strong and lasting partnerships with our customers. Our relationship with IMSI/Design, as exemplified by this new contract agreement, is an example of that commitment, acknowledged Keith Mountain, CEO of Spatial. Our customers, across a wide range of industries, are under constant pressure to remain competitive and introduce new capabilities and innovative products more rapidly. Our goal is to make those efforts a success.
