Concord, MA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
SpaceClaim, the leading provider of flexible and affordable 3D for engineering, design, and manufacturing, today announced SpaceClaim Engineer has been named NASA Tech Briefs' Readers' Choice Product of the Year for 2012.
SpaceClaim Engineer is the world’s fastest and most innovative 3D direct modeler. SpaceClaim Engineer brings 3D solid modeling to the desktops of engineers and analysts who work in 3D, with a simplicity and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) never seen before in CAD.
Each month, editors choose a Product of the Month that has exceptional technical merit and practical value for NASA Tech Briefs readers. They then ask their readers to choose one of those 12 Products of the Month that they feel was the most significant new product introduced to the engineering community in 2012.
"The NASA Tech Briefs Product of the Year is selected solely by the readers -- the buyers and users of these products. The winners are the best of the best -- the products that design engineers feel were the most important new products introduced in 2012 that will help them do their jobs better and more efficiently," said Linda L. Bell, Editorial Director, NASA Tech Briefs.
“We are honored to have been voted Product of the Year for 2012 by the engineers who read NASA Tech Briefs. Our goal has always been to deliver powerful 3D software to all engineers involved in mechanical design. This recognition is validation that we are achieving that goal,” said Chris Randles, President and CEO of SpaceClaim. “Traditional parametric CAD has never been the tool of choice for engineers, who are more concerned with concept development, or design verification than on production of detailed designs and drawings. SpaceClaim easily opens and edit any 3D model, regardless of format, so its users can focus on engineering, not learning how to program CAD features."
