Spatial licenses 3D Mesh from Visual Kinematics, Inc (VKI), a leading supplier of component software tools for the CAE industry for 20 years.
“We chose to partner with Spatial because they also have a long history of selling and supporting technology leading 3D software components. The integration of ACIS with the VisTools/Mesh (3D Mesh), combined with Spatial’s experienced support and professional services organization, provides a compelling reason for customers to choose Spatial for their component needs” stated Gordon Ferguson, President of VKI. “We are working closely with Spatial in support of their sales efforts, and continued development of our VisTools/Mesh component based on joint customer feedback.”
Application providers are looking for ways to accelerate product delivery, while maintaining their competitive advantage. CAE suppliers often differentiate themselves through proprietary solvers best suited for their applications and end-user needs. Mesh generation, however, is not usually a core competency and these vendors prefer to license a third-party component for this capability, rather than carry the cost and risk associated with doing the development work themselves. For internal development organizations working on highly-specialized applications, 3D Mesh enables them to concentrate their resources on addressing the specific problem, rather than expend valuable resources on technology that is already generally available.
“We are constantly looking to partner with companies like VKI that excel at what they do and offer technologies that complement our existing product portfolio,” commented Jerry Walters, Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Service. “Spatial ensures that the components all work together, eliminating the integration burden for our customers. Plus, our customers benefit from a single source for sales, support, and services.”
3D Mesh is delivered as thread-safe libraries, enabling multi-threaded applications to take advantage of multi-core hardware platforms and deliver optimal application performance. The software component includes an ACIS bridge, for easy integration with ACIS- and InterOp-enabled applications.
