“We have been very pleased with our ongoing relationship with Spatial. They share our dedication to providing customers the very best products and services. We signed this agreement because we are completely focused on offering the best 3D CAD software and translation solutions in the market, and Spatial’s ACIS and InterOp products are key components of our product and strategy,” Mark Parent, COO, Kubotek USA.
Spatial components are the building blocks and foundation for Kubotek’s software. Kubotek licenses Spatial’s 3D Modeling and Interoperability products including the 3D ACIS® Modeler, 3D ACIS PHL V5, ACIS Deformable Modeler, 3D InterOp Translators, 3D InterOp Manufacturing Options, and Select Support, one of Spatial’s premium support packages. Kubotek’s product line includes the flagship mechanical CAD software, KeyCreator™, which brings together multidimensional design and drafting, NC programming and reverse-engineering capabilities. Kubotek’s other products include REALyze™ multiCAD data exchange tools, Kubotek Spectrum™ multiCAD viewer, and Validation Tool™.
Kubotek now imbeds Spatial’s 3D InterOp and Manufacturing Option Suites within KeyCreator. The 3D InterOp Suite helps KeyCreator’s manufacturing base of customers provide timely, reliable data translation for popular file formats. These components translate product structure, 3D geometry and common non-geometric data such as names, color, layers and coordinate systems. The 3D InterOp Manufacturing Option components are plug-in options that further improve productivity by enabling manufacturing information such as geometric tolerances and dimensions to be translated directly from a 3D source format, removing the need to re-enter data already captured in the design. KeyCreator customers have a distinct advantage over their competitors with this unique translation capability.
“Spatial and Kubotek have had a close working relationship for over 10 years. Both companies determined that it would be a good idea to update our agreement to better fit today’s product development needs and business challenges. The result is a closer relationship that best suits Kubotek and their customer’s needs,” stated Keith Mountain, CEO, Spatial. “Spatial is responsive to our customer’s evolving needs and is committed to providing the very best products, services and mutually beneficial business relationships to address them.”
The new contract between Kubotek and Spatial provides Kubotek with tighter product integration, an enhanced level of support services, pricing and packaging flexibility, and a royalty agreement that aligns both companies business objectives. This new contract supports Kubotek’s customers ability to purchase products configured in new ways, and supports Kubotek’s commitment to providing the highest level of customer support for their customer’s most challenging modeling needs.
