ORLANDO, Fla. – February 10, 2009Aras®, leading Microsoft enterprise open source software solution provider, today announced at SolidWorks World 2009 that it has forged a technology partnership with Actify, Inc., the global leader in product data collaboration solutions. The partnership will provide the SpinFire visualization products embedded in every download of the advanced PLM software suite from Aras to deliver seamless 3D and 2D file translation, publishing, and distribution.

Actify’s SpinFire technology is designed to enable access, communication, distribution, and re-use of numerous 3D and 2D CAD file formats throughout the enterprise and global supply chain.  SpinFire enables collaboration on all the major CAD formats including CATIA, SolidWorks, Inventor, AutoCAD, NX, Solid Edge, and more. With the partnership, every download of the advanced PLM software solution from Aras will include Actify’s SpinFire for CAD viewing with additional capabilities available as an upgrade.

"Companies that use product lifecycle management software need to be able to view the CAD files, and making the SpinFire CAD viewing software available in Aras expands our capabilities to everyone that wants to access 3D models and 2D drawings," said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. "Because of our advanced model-based SOA and the open format of the Aras PLM software we are able to embed the SpinFire CAD viewer technology very quickly and easily so that it is included in every download."
