think3 Enhances Best-in-Class Industrial Design Solution Through Partnership with Worldwide Leader in Reverse Engineering

Geomagic Studio and think3's Global Shape Modeling Accelerate the 'Art-to-Part' Process

July 2, 2003 -- think3, the fastest growing company in the product lifecycle management (PLM) industry, today announced an agreement with Raindrop Geomagic to add reverse engineering capabilities to think3's best-in-class industrial design solution. This powerful combination will enable product design companies to realize design intent faster and bring high-quality, innovative products to market sooner.

"At its essence, product design is an iterative process, and designs are often modified many times before reaching final approval," says Dan Meyer, think3 vice president of worldwide marketing. "The combination of Geomagic Studio and think3's Industrial Design product bundle will dramatically accelerate the process of creating and modifying designs, significantly improving project turnaround time."

Raindrop Geomagic's reverse-engineering product, Geomagic Studio, will allow think3 customers to rapidly capture scan data from a physical part and automatically turn it into accurate polygon and surface models. think3's Global Shape Modeling technology will then enable them to make precise modifications to those surfaces in hours rather than days or weeks, something no traditional industrial design solution can offer.

"Geomagic technology enables manufacturing companies to digitally reproduce physical models or parts and create customized products with the same efficiency as mass-produced items," says Jim Johnson, vice president of sales for Raindrop Geomagic. "Our partnership with think3 provides a complete, end-to-end solution to manufacturers looking for a better way to optimize concept realization."

The benefits of think3's partnership with Raindrop Geomagic are available today to design, engineering and manufacturing companies worldwide.
