Geometry and Topology Visualization capabilities enhanced through use of
HOOPS 3D Component Technology
Oakland, CA and Milford, OH – April 15, 2003 – Tech Soft America (TSA), the
leading provider of component graphics technology to the CAD/CAM/CAE
industry, and ITI TranscenData, the product data interoperability business
of International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI), announce that the next
generation of CADIQ will be built on the HOOPS 3D Application Framework
(HOOPS 3d/AF) as well as support export of the OpenHSF format, a budding
standard for engineering visualization.
CADIQ, the industry’s leading CAD model quality assurance tool, enables
users to analyze, identify, and highlight hidden geometry/topology errors
along with shape and fit changes within the model. In this way potential
problems can be corrected before the model reaches downstream product
development applications such as analysis, simulation, rapid prototyping, NC
manufacturing and data exchange.
“With HOOPS/3dAF, the base application infrastructure is already designed
and built,” said Don Hemmelgarn, President of ITI TranscenData. “This
allows us to take advantage of the power of the underlying set of component
and focus CADIQ development on true added value rather than re-invent the
graphics power and functionality encapsulated within the HOOPS product set.”
“Given ITI Transcendata's position as a leading provider of data
interoperability solutions we are honored they chose the HOOPS 3D
Application Framework as the core visualization engine for CADIQ. We are
certain the CADIQ customer base will be impressed with its new graphics
capabilities and the data link with the many other applications also
supporting the OpenHSF visualization standard. We look forward to helping
them quickly ship a successful, high-performance and graphically rich
product,” added Ron Fritz, Managing Partner, Tech Soft America.
About HOOPS 3D Application Framework
HOOPS 3D Application Framework (HOOPS/3dAF) is an extensible, high-level
component that dramatically simplifies the design, development and
