Concord, MA, USA and St Romain, France - 11 April 2007 - SpaceClaim Corp. and TraceParts S.A. today announced the immediate availability of SpaceClaim TraceParts, a comprehensive library of manufacturers' and industry standard parts seamlessly integrated into SpaceClaim Professional 2007. Users can choose components from a variety of leading parts supplier catalogs and place them directly in their designs. The availability and use of manufacturer-supplied design models allows concept designers, engineers, and other SpaceClaim users to increase personal productivity by focusing more time on contributing to their own designs.
"SpaceClaim provides users with immediate productivity gains through a modern user interface, flexible modelling environment, and powerful tool set. The inclusion of the SpaceClaim TraceParts standard libraries furthers user productivity by speeding the design process," said Michael McGuinness, COO of SpaceClaim Corp. "The seamless integration of TraceParts with SpaceClaim Professional 2007 is another example that highlights the advantages of our open XML data model and data exchange capabilities to quickly provide users additional value through customer-focused technology partnerships."
"We are very proud to be the first parts library integrated into SpaceClaim Professional 2007. We've been in the CAD industry for more than 15 years, and we've never experienced the high-level of responsiveness we received from SpaceClaim. They literally integrated our complete library of parts into SpaceClaim in an hour. It tells a lot about how reactive and passionate the whole SpaceClaim team is," said Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts. "SpaceClaim is clearly an industry technology-leader and we expect all of our parts manufacturers to benefit from SpaceClaim's growing acceptance in the marketplace."
