Tech Soft 3D Empowers 3D CAD Project Collaboration for New Cloud-Based Service

BERKELEY, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 14, 2012 -- Tech Soft 3D and VisPower are pleased to announce that the newly-released TeamPlatform, a cloud-based productivity application to help manage intra/inter-company projects among design, engineering and manufacturing firms, is built with Tech Soft 3D HOOPS Exchange data access libraries. Using Tech Soft 3D's HOOPS Exchange, TeamPlatform enables its users to visualize and track embedded metadata from a variety of 3D CAD formats, including IGES, STEP, SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, Siemens NX, CATIA and Autodesk Inventor without the need for a CAD system, simplifying project collaboration and enabling instant engagement from all stakeholders.

TeamPlatform creates secure, sharable workspaces in which users can visualize, comment and manage all versions of a document, multimedia file or CAD file entirely within a web browser as projects move along. For CAD models, easy-to-start, intuitive workflows in TeamPlatform also track sophisticated information about designs -- including hierarchies, assembly components, annotation and measurements -- all which can be selectively shared as designs are modified and finalized.

HOOPS Exchange provides TeamPlatform users comprehensive and robust import of all aspects of their models. TeamPlatform's cloud servers use models imported with HOOPS Exchange to create in-browser 3D displays, meaning users can analyze designs and design versions including viewing 3D files without having to download and open them in dedicated 3D CAD software.

"VisPower Technology was looking for a solution that brought multi-format design data into a project collaboration environment," says Tech Soft 3D CEO, Ron Fritz. "HOOPS Exchange works within TeamPlatform to bring models' full data sets, from a variety of formats, into a user-friendly cloud application."

"Tech Soft 3D has been wonderful to work with -- providing outstanding support in addition to a product that fits our needs," says VisPower CEO, Simon Bae. "Our partnership with Tech Soft 3D will ensure TeamPlatform is compatible with the latest formats and delivers the highest degree of accuracy for our customers' complex collaborative projects, now and into the future."
