Co-Sponsored Research Supports Using TransMagic For CAD Data Exchange

WESTMINSTER, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 23, 2007— TransMagic, Inc., the leading developer of innovative and affordable 3D CAD translation software, today announced that it has co-sponsored Aberdeen Group's "Multi-CAD Design Chain Benchmark Report." A key recommendation in the report advises manufacturers to use specialized third-party translation software to manage the transfer of design data to downstream applications. This comprehensive report outlines the best practices of top performing companies. Download the free report at

Aberdeen Group's "Multi-CAD Design Chain Benchmark Report: Insulating Engineering from Today's Multi-CAD Environment" addresses the enormous challenges facing engineering organizations who struggle with incompatible design formats. The research suggests that significant manufacturing problems and costs can be traced to poor or non-existent CAD file compatibility between engineering applications. The report goes on to say that "engineering organizations spend a significant amount of time and effort translating or even re-creating design data, which results in missed launch dates and low design reuse." However, top performers are more likely to utilize third-party translation products, such as TransMagic, to mitigate these problems.

"TransMagic sponsored this report because Aberdeen has done an excellent job of researching the issues concerning data management in multi-CAD environments. Companies waste a significant amount of time trying to fix IGES files or re-creating design data. Aberdeen identifies the key factors that impact efficiency," said Todd Reade, President of TransMagic. "TransMagic's focus is developing high-quality data exchange tools that solve this costly manufacturing problem."

"As engineering organizations are increasingly inundated with design data in a variety of formats, the best in class performers are ten times more likely to turn towards translation applications such as TransMagic to insulate themselves from the disruptive effects of recreating designs in different formats," announced Chad Jackson, Research Director and Author of this Aberdeen Group report.
