San Rafael, CA--January 27, 1997--IMSI (San Rafael, CA) announced that it has entered a strategic alliance with Spatial Technology Inc. (Boulder, CO) which will enable the company to incorporate ACIS solid modeling technology into future versions of TurboCAD.
The company revealed plans for a phased approach to the integration of ACIS components into TurboCAD, IMSI's flagship CAD product. The first step will be to give TurboCAD users the ability to exchange files with those from other packages, such as AutoCAD R13, which support the ACIS .SAT format. Future plans, the company said, will depend on customer needs and market changes, but certainly will include the delivery of more 3D features in TurboCAD and other products in the TurboCAD line.
Through this alliance, IMSI joins a number of other software companies which have included ACIS technology in their CAD products. IMSI's line of CAD software products includes TurboCAD 2D/3D, for Windows and Macintosh TurboCAD Designe,r and FloorPlan Plus 3D.
