DP Technology (Camarillo, CA), author of the ESPRIT CAM systems, signed an agreement with Spatial Corp. (Broomfield, CO) to extend the use of Spatial’s InterOp Suite, which delivers interoperability between CAM and computer-aided-design (CAD) formats, in ESPRIT CAM.
ESPRIT 2009 and ESPRIT Mold v10 will both include Spatial’s InterOp Suite as a standard feature of the product line. ESPRIT uses InterOp to support the direct native transfer of ACIS-based CAD data into the ESPRIT CAM system. Additionally, in ESPRIT Mold InterOp is used for a variety of optional CAD data translators.
DP Technology also signed an agreement with Siemens PLM Software (Plano, TX) to extend the use of Parasolid software, a geometric modeling component for demanding 3D applications, in its ESPRIT CAM software.
The standard base license of the ESPRIT 2000 series will now use the Parasolid Designer level functionality, thereby offering the advanced solid modeling capabilities of ESPRIT, previously an optional product, as a standard component of the software. The ESPRIT Mold version of the software will, for the first time, use Parasolid Communicator as part of its standard base license.
Existing ESPRIT customers with active software maintenance contracts will receive these upgrades at no additional cost as part of their existing service agreement with DP Technology.
