Océ Produces Award Winner with CoCreate OneSpace Modeling
Industry “Oscar” recognizes best in contemporary design
For immediate release
SINDELFINGEN, Germany – 12 June 2007 – CoCreate Software GmbH, a leading provider of 3rd generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, today announced that CoCreate OneSpace Modeling was used to design the award-winning TDS700 printing system from Océ Technical Documentation Systems.
The TDS700 recently won the International Forum Product Design Gold Award. The Gold Award, often called the Design Oscar, is one of the world's oldest and most reputable awards for product design.
Judges chose the Océ TDS700 from more than 2000 entrants because of its innovative design, usability and commitment to a healthy environment—the printer emits the lowest dust, ozone, heat and sound in its class.
“We are proud that Océ used OneSpace Modeling to design this printing system,” says William Gascoigne, CEO CoCreate Software GmbH. “To see our software associated with such acclaimed awards underlines how a Dynamic Modeling based approach to 3D is essential for companies that demand superior flexibility and innovation from their development process.”
Océ used OneSpace Modeling throughout the design of the TDS700. The software proves especially valuable for work on designs that require frequent adjustments and short design cycles.
“CoCreate´s OneSpace Modeling helped us design quickly without shying away from new or better ideas,” says Arjen Wind, Product Designer for the TDS700. “OneSpace Modeling is very easy to use, and you can make changes, even late in the design process, with just a mouse click. A history based modeler could not have matched it.”
By allowing several departments to design, analyze and document products from the same 3D files, OneSpace Modeling connects Océ design teams with mechanical engineering departments and keeps design and communications clear and succinct. This in turn keeps the company streamlined and competitive, especially in a fast-changing business environment.
“With OneSpace Modeling, we create reliable, compact, and easy-to-use printers,” says Wind. “OneSpace Modeling helps us realize all our design ideas, which in turn helps us produce award-winning products like the TDS700.”
