3D PDF Consortium Annual Meeting at 3DCIC in Denver May 21-23

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   3D PDF Consortium to Hold Its First Annual Meeting At 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress Consortium Also to Sponsor the May Congress     Wakefield, MA – February 7, 2012 – The 3D PDF Consortium announced today that is holding its first annual meeting in conjunction with the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress (3DCIC – www.3dcic.com), on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 23rd. The 3DCIC is dedicated to fostering and improving collaboration and interoperability in product design, development and manufacturing. The 3D PDF Consortium is also sponsoring the popular industry forum.   “3DCIC is a natural fit for our annual meeting,” says David Opsahl, the Consortium executive director. “The Congress focuses on end user experiences across any industry, and how users are meeting their objectives by leveraging product data assets in ways that generate real return on investment. This is very appealing to our members. They gain valuable insights on innovative ways their manufacturing colleagues are addressing some of the same challenges they themselves face.”   “3D PDF will become ubiquitous as people throughout manufacturing learn what they can do with it to enhance collaboration in product development”, explains David Prawel, president of Longview Advisors, and founder of 3DCIC. “3D PDF already has a long history with our event. As many our attendees are implementing real-world solutions to their PLM challenges, 3D PDF always ends up in the dialog.”   About the 3D PDF Consortium The 3D PDF Consortium is a community of companies interested in collaboration of dynamic 3D data through PDF files. Software providers, systems integrators, government agencies, and businesses that provide and...

SpaceClaim Joins 3D PDF Consortium

Contacts: Bernie Buelow SpaceClaim Corporation (978) 482-2211 bernie.buelow@spaceclaim.com     SpaceClaim Joins 3D PDF Consortium as Founding Member   DENVER, CO, May 21, 2012 – SpaceClaim, the leader in easy and accessible 3D CAD for engineering, mechanical design, and manufacturing, announced today at the Collaboration and Interoperability Conference (3DCIC) that the company has become a founding member of the 3D PDF Consortium. The consortium is holding its first annual meeting at the 3D CIC meeting this week.   “We are pleased to welcome SpaceClaim to our membership,” said David Opsahl, Executive Director of the 3D PDF Consortium, “as a true innovator in the CAD space, and as a leader in providing 3D Direct Modeling solutions. Their experience in delivering cost effective and easy-to-use 3D tools to the product development, engineering, and manufacturing communities is a welcome addition to our efforts in promoting 3D PDF as an open standard for visualization, collaboration, data exchange, and the long-term archiving of 3D data.”   “We look forward to supporting the efforts of the 3D PDF Consortium,” said Chris Randles, President and CEO of SpaceClaim, “as it seeks to communicate the benefits of 3D PDF, and drive its adoption as a standard in engineering and manufacturing. SpaceClaim is an innovator in 3D design, and the Consortium’s goals perfectly align with our own strategy. SpaceClaim’s is CAD-neutral, and our goal is to expand the market for 3D by providing easy-to-use tools that can create and edit any kind of 3D data – even formats that are normally seen as limited to visualization – thereby eliminating many of the headaches associated with traditional, proprietary CAD...
