Robert McNeel & Associates (Seattle, WA) and SpaceClaim (Concord, MA) announced a round-trip integration between Rhinoceros and SpaceClaim LTX.
SpaceClaim added 3DM to SpaceClaim LTX to enable product stylists to use 3D mechanical design elements in their designs at an affordable price. The solution allows users to open Rhino files directly in SpaceClaim LTX for creating solid geometry. The 3D solid design can then be sent back to the Rhino file format for precise surface creation by the stylist.
SpaceClaim LTX and Rhino are naturally compatible and think alike, offering an uninhibited environment, precise modeling, and a flat learning curve. Since product stylists require seamless data exchange between surfacing and design applications, the Rhino and SpaceClaim LTX integration enable the creation of free-form surfaces in context of the product design.
Interested customers should contact their Rhino Reseller for a quote on the integrated solution.
