Simpoe signed an OEM agreement with PTC, authorizing Simpoe to develop a new extension for PTC Creo for the plastic industry, which will replace PTC's plastic advisor extension.
This new extension is expected to be available with the new release of Creo in 2013. Existing plastic advisor customers under active maintenance with PTC will be able to migrate to the new Simpoe embedded plastic software suite for Creo at no charge. In addition to the new extension, a limited function version of Simpoe software will be included as standard with each seat of Creo parametric.
Simpoe will continue to market and sell its SimpoePro product suite of complete plastic injection simulation software, which is fully integrated with Creo. According to the company, SimpoePro users can optimize the design and manufacturing costs of their plastic parts, without ever leaving the Creo graphic user environment.
