Tech Soft 3D and think3, announced that the latest release of ThinkDesign is integrated with HOOPS Exchange and HOOPS Publish. ThinkDesign, think3's advanced parametric CAD system for solid, surface and hybrid modeling, is scheduled to ship in the third quarter of 2012.
HOOPS Exchange and HOOPS Publish are data access libraries and 3D PDF Publishing SDKs developed by Tech Soft 3D. According to the companies, these technologies enhance ThinkDesign's portability with extensive 3D CAD data access and the ability to output rich, ISO-standard 3D PDF files. HOOPS Publish enables this design data to be further shared with 3D PDF output using PRC, the native 3D PDF file format, developed by Tech Soft 3D.
"The dedication and the great collaboration between our combined development teams has allowed a fast and effective integration of HOOPS Exchange and HOOPS Publish into ThinkDesign," said Patrick Bosinco, head of research and development at think3.
"Think3 is committed to providing versatility to its customers," said Tech Soft 3D vice president of SDK products, Gavin Bridgeman. "HOOPS Exchange enables ThinkDesign to provide its users access to the 3D CAD formats they require, and extend the value of their design with lightweight, collaborative 3D PDF output."
