LAS VEGAS, NV – (BUSINESS WIRE) Feb 18, 2002 – VirtualE3D, an engineering and software services development company, announced today that it will demonstrate its revolutionary VCollab visual collaboration software in booth #122 at the SolidWorks World 2002 International Conference from February 17-20, 2002.
VCollab software enables distributed engineering product development teams to visualize, analyze, improve and collaborate with any 3D content independent of the CAD source. VCollab is tightly integrated with SolidWorks(R) software and users can activate a VCollab session from inside the SolidWorks window. Using VCollab, designers working in a heterogeneous CAD environment can load and study large assemblies and find clashes among parts dynamically. Assembly teams can study assembly sequences while maintenance teams can use VCollab to assess the ease of maintenance of the product.
VCollab is designed specifically for the aerospace, automotive, heavy engineering, consumer goods, electrical and electronics industries, and allows companies using SolidWorks and other engineering design and analysis tools to visually collaborate with all the 3D engineering data on one, common, neutral platform. This collaboration offers companies increased productivity and cost savings. All the product design and development teams across the product life cycle can visualize, analyze, experience and improve the product before it is manufactured. VCollab provides a secure way of sharing the 3D information and allows various product design and development teams to study the functional product throughout the product life cycle.
VirtualE3D was founded by the same IT professionals who founded InfoVision Consultants, Inc. The companies work together closely on marketing, development and implementation of VCollab software. InfoVision is a SolidWorks Research Partner.
“Our close association with InfoVision has enabled VirtualE3D users to collaborate with SolidWorks software and bring more design organizations up to current levels of virtual prototyping and visual collaboration,” said Prasad Mandava, CEO of VirtualE3D. “This enables them to participate in the design of the product much earlier in the lifecycle, ultimately increasing team productivity.”
“SolidWorks has become the standard 3D design solution within the discreet manufacturing market, and our goal is to bring the power of 3D to everyone involved in the design process,” said Robert McGill, manager of SolidWorks Partner Program. “The goal of our partnership with VirtualE3D is to give our customers a choice of distributed design solutions that help manufacturers get new products to market faster.”
