ALGOR DesignCheck Provides Integrated Simulation for Pro/ENGINEER Users

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 03, 2008 -- ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced the availability of ALGOR DesignCheck -- a first-pass, fully integrated simulation tool -- for users of Pro/ENGINEER®, the integrated 3-D CAD/CAM/CAE solution from Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC) of Needham, Massachusetts. Expanding upon the existing technology partnership between ALGOR and PTC, ALGOR DesignCheck is free, time-limited finite element analysis (FEA) software that allows engineers and designers to perform linear static stress analysis of single-part CAD models. With ALGOR DesignCheck, Pro/ENGINEER® users can virtually test the behavior of product designs, speed up time to market and make better, safer products at a lower cost.

ALGOR software's easy-to-use single user interface, FEMPRO®, provides direct CAD/CAE data exchange and full associativity with most CAD solid modelers, including Pro/ENGINEER. This allows engineers to simply choose the analysis tools they need, giving them access to ALGOR's wide range of simulation capabilities including: static stress and Mechanical Event Simulation (MES) with linear and nonlinear material models; linear dynamics; fatigue; CFD including steady-state and transient heat transfer, steady and unsteady fluid flow and mass transfer; electrostatics; full multiphysics; and piping.

"ALGOR DesignCheck allows Pro/ENGINEER users to perform valuable, production-quality work and experience the benefits of incorporating FEA into the design process," said Bob Williams, ALGOR Product Manager. "After getting started with ALGOR DesignCheck, Pro/ENGINEER users can easily upgrade their ALGOR license to include additional analysis tools and support for assemblies. After upgrading, they will enjoy all the same features they have used with ALGOR DesignCheck including the same easy-to-use interface so they don't need to learn a new interface or process in order to take advantage of a broader range of analysis types."

"PTC's Partner Advantage Program is designed to create business opportunities and revenue growth for both companies while providing optimal solutions for customers," said Andy Barlow, senior director of business development, PTC. "With the availability of ALGOR DesignCheck, ALGOR continues to provide complementary solutions to our product development system -- enabling Pro/ENGINEER users to increase productivity."
