BROOMFIELD -- Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D software development toolkits for design, manufacturing, and engineering solutions, and a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes, today announced the availability of Release 2017 1.0 of its software development toolkits.
This release continues Spatial’s long tradition of delivering innovative and robust solutions to the industry and adds a number of enhancements and new capabilities to Spatial’s product line, the company said.
Spatial said early customer reaction to the new release has been strong.
“Spatial has been an excellent development partner and we appreciate that they provided us with the opportunity to beta test version 2017 1.0,” said Yasuhiro Fukunaga, director of R&D at PHOTRON Ltd.
“This beta testing gave us insight into the new features and functionality along with great confidence in this latest release. We are ready to begin our migration work immediately.”
“Intergraph provides the process, power, and marine industries with a powerful portfolio of industry-leading, best-in-class design, and data management solutions,” said Eunice B. Howell, technical director at Intergraph Process, Power and Marine.
“Included in our portfolios are solutions that involve large-scale design automation, automatic creation of large, and complex engineering drawings, and the generation of high-quality manufacturing data.
“We are excited about deploying 2017 1.0 3D ACIS Modeler in our products because we see innovations such as the new incremental Boolean approach as an automatic backup for difficult Boolean operations that improves the robustness of automated workflows. Improved robustness translates into real value for our customers.”
With this release, Spatial said it continues to enhance its 3D ACIS® Modeler, the standard for 3D geometric modeling, adding to the vast breadth of capabilities while also extending the depth of workflows and use cases that enable reliable innovation for Spatial’s customers.
“We added new workflows for Boolean operations, one of the most important and common geometric modeling capabilities needed by industry,” said Brian Rohde, senior product manager.
“Customers can solve additional complex use cases involving massive numbers of entities, even when they may not be within tolerances.
Spatial said the new options allow users and application developers to automate as much of the workflow as possible, while enabling iterative engagement on problem areas, and serves as a foundation for even more Boolean empowerment in future releases.”
