ODA Members Will Benefit from Improved 3D ACIS Modeler Integration
BROOMFIELD, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 12, 2012 — Spatial Corp, the leading provider of 3D development components for design, manufacturing and engineering applications, and the Open Design Alliance (ODA) today announced the addition of ODA as an Integrated Partner in the Spatial Industry Partner Program. The Spatial Industry Partner Program offers a unique opportunity for developers of complementary software components and related service providers to better serve their customer base.
Teigha®, a product of the Open Design Alliance, provides a C++ development environment that includes full support for .dwg/.dxf and DGN files, a powerful object-oriented C++ API, and a rich feature set for editing, manipulating and rendering CAD data. Teigha currently leverages 3D ACIS® Modeler from Spatial Corp to provide technology to member applications built with Teigha using the optional SpaModeler module.
“The addition of the Open Design Alliance as a Spatial Partner demonstrates the start of what’s possible through the Industry Partner Program,” said Linda Lokay, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “Spatial provides a broad portfolio of products and services with which Industry Partners can best address their markets. While the current partnership focuses on the 3D ACIS Modeler, the Open Design Alliance or other Spatial Industry Partners can leverage the CGM Modeler, 3D InterOp, or other 3D application development components.”
“3D ACIS Modeler aligns well with the roadmap for Teigha,” said Arnold van der Weide, President of the Open Design Alliance. “This partnership, which formalizes a long-standing relationship with Spatial, allows the ODA to provide and test the Teigha API for 3D ACIS Modeler. We are looking forward to deepening our collaboration with Spatial. I am convinced that ODA members will see significant benefits from this partnership.”
