IronCAD Extends License Agreement with Tech Soft 3D’s HOOPS® Technology
ATLANTA, GA. January 11, 2007 – IronCAD, the innovative design collaboration solutions company, and Tech Soft 3D, the leading provider of component graphics technology to the CAD; CAM; and CAE industries, today announced a license agreement to extend Tech Soft 3D's HOOPS® technology to IronCAD’s modeling environment.
IronCAD and Tech Soft 3D's partnership began in 2004, when IronCAD first licensed HOOPS® for their free IronCAD file viewer. IronCAD will now extend Tech Soft 3D's graphical components to IronCAD’s modeling environment, further enhancing its design interaction.
“Because of its impressive graphical performance, HOOPS technology has become a staple in applications for the CAD, CAM and CAE markets. Incorporating HOOPS technology into IronCAD's modeling environment lets users take advantage of real-time model interaction that improves design efficiency and allows for better communication outside the design team,” says Cary O’Connor, Marketing Director for IronCAD.
“We’re looking forward to the release of IronCAD with the HOOPS framework embedded as their core graphics subsystem”, said Ron Fritz, Managing Partner for Tech Soft 3D, “We’re confident that IronCAD users will benefit from the enhanced performance, interactivity and functionality that HOOPS provides.”
IronCAD plans to incorporate the HOOPS Technology in its next major release in 2007.
