CAD Schroer Partners with 3D PRO to Bring Powerful, Integrated Drafting to Pro/ENGINEER® Customers in Poland

Moers, Germany – 13 August 2008: CAD Schroer Group (CSG), the global engineering solutions provider, today welcomed a new reseller, 3D PRO in Poland, focusing on STHENO/PRO®, the only drafting solution fully integrated with Pro/ENGINEER, Pro/INTRALINK® and Windchill PDMLink™, ideal for consolidating model and drawing-based product development processes.

CSG, known for its MEDUSA4® and STHENO/PRO MCAD software suites, has a strong international presence with offices in Germany, Switzerland, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, and the United States. "Offering local, friendly, and technically competent advice to our customers has always been our fundamental strength," says Michael Schroer, founding Director of the company that has grown from strength to strength since its beginnings as a CAD-based engineering services provider in 1986.

New Partners in Key Locations
Its extensive reseller network, which subscribes to the same ethos, already covers much of the globe, but there is plenty of room for growth in specific countries and market niches. "Our latest partner drive focuses on suppliers to Pro/ENGINEER® customers, who recognise STHENO/PRO as an unrivalled solution", says Joep Brouwers, CSG's International Channel Manager. "This month we are pleased to welcome 3D PRO, a PTC Silver Level Software Partner."

About 3D PRO
Established in 1995, 3D PRO, located in Lodz, Poland, today has a team of 15 technical and sales experts with over 240 customers, offering engineering software solutions and consultancy all around the PTC® product range, as well as providing training, support and implementation services.

“We are extremely pleased to become a CAD Schroer partner,” says Marius Szenfelder, the company's Managing Director, “Adding STHENO/PRO to our product offering means completing our portfolio. We can now offer the ideal 2D/3D solution to new and existing customers. Most Polish companies moving to 3D don't want to give up a strong drafting solution, and that means they need a product that works seamlessly within their Pro/ENGINEER data management environment and integrates with Windchill® PDMLink™ or Pro/INTRALINK®. STHENO/PRO allows them to consolidate data from the 2D and 3D worlds and move forward with best-in-class tools for the entire design process.”

3D PRO is already in the process of implementing a Pro/ENGINEER + Windchill PDMLink + STHENO/PRO solution at a client site, replacing an existing I- deas® 2D/3D installation.

Developed in Partnership with PTC®
“PTC and CSG have been working in close partnership to ensure that STHENO/PRO‘s development is tightly aligned with PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER strategy,” says Michael Campbell, Vice President of Product Management at PTC. “The product has now reached an impressive degree of maturity and technical innovation, and we fully endorse it as the ideal 2D partner application for Pro/ENGINEER, obviating some of our customers’ need for separate drafting packages, such as AutoCAD®. Pro/ENGINEER and STHENO/PRO work hand-in-glove to form the ultimate 2D to 3D solution in companies with a considerable 2D legacy or supply chain.”

STHENO/PRO replaces the need for a 3-tier (Pro/E – 2D – paper) approach, working hand-in-glove with Pro/DETAIL™, offering seamless, bi-directional data exchange, and the incorporation, editing and maintenance of raster data. It allows for the quick and easy creation of things like 2D concepts, layouts and tender designs, as well as 2D adaptations of Pro/DETAIL® sheets for product designs, technical manuals, and installation designs.

"No matter which corner of the globe you visit, design engineers have much in common: they need competent advice, backed by reliable, efficient, integrated tools that work the way engineers do – freeing, rather than restricting, creativity," Michael Schroer concludes. "STHENO/PRO has managed to capture the imagination of customers throughout the world, precipitating our move for further expansion. We are always pleased to find partners who, as leaders in their field, share our passion for friendly and competent customer support, providing real added value to any systems implementation.”
