Blue Ridge Numerics Announces Strategic Partnership With SpaceClaim

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 30, 2007 -- Blue Ridge Numerics announced today the company has joined in partnership with SpaceClaim Corporation, the leading provider of CAD-neutral modification solutions for the extended product development team, to offer CFdesign for SpaceClaim Professional 2007. The joint solution empowers engineers to conduct design-driven flow and thermal trade-off studies without having to be CAD operators.

"Fluid flow and heat transfer are major considerations for many engineers involved in the product development process," stated Blue Ridge president Ed Williams. "While many are quite comfortable addressing flow and thermal issues as part of the CAD operation, others view the creation and modification of 3D models as a barrier to using CFD upfront in the design process. We are optimistic this joint solution will enable the multi-discipline engineer with an intuitive 3D modeling and CFD solution for better decision-making and collaboration."

CFdesign for SpaceClaim Professional is ideal for project engineers, product managers, mechanical engineers, thermal engineers, and electronics engineers. Enhancing team collaboration and design re-use, models can be built or imported into SpaceClaim, optimized with CFdesign, then readily shared with designers working in Autodesk Inventor, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, and UGS NX.

"SpaceClaim's goal is to make 3D accessible to more individuals involved in the product design process. Our partnership with CFdesign enables engineers to collaborate more effectively with the rest of the team," commented Mike Payne, CEO of SpaceClaim Corp. "To date, the process has required engineers to maintain proficiency across multiple applications or rely heavily on the CAD operator for help. SpaceClaim and CFdesign free the engineer and the CAD operator to be more efficient in their work."

CFdesign for SpaceClaim Professional 2007 will be available in November from Blue Ridge Numerics.
