Tech Soft 3D Launches New HOOPS Desktop and Cloud Platforms
Improved performance, ease of use and support for the latest CAD formats continues to make the 2016 HOOPS Desktop and Cloud Platforms the leading platform choice for building world class engineering applications
February 26, 2016, Bend, OR USA – Tech Soft 3D today announced availability of the newest versions of its two high-performance platforms, HOOPS Cloud Platform and HOOPS Desktop Platform, designed to give developers full access to integrated HOOPS toolkit functionality. The Platforms combine market-leading 3D technologies for CAD data exchange, visualization and 3D PDF creation, along with tight connections to popular modeling kernels. The two Platforms provide an unprecedented level of performance for developers in the engineering market, while also providing up to date support for all the latest versions of the CAD authoring systems, making them the easiest and most cost effective way for developers to leverage the full spectrum of HOOPS functionality for both existing applications and future development projects.
“Whether they are building applications for CMM, CAE, or PLM system, our customers have realized the benefits of using our integrated toolkit technologies through our HOOPS Platforms,” said Ron Fritz, CEO of Tech Soft 3D. “Time is money. And a platform that is best in class, can jumpstart their development projects for the web, desktop or mobile, supports all current CAD systems and is affordable translates to faster time to market and revenues. We are committed to investing in the technology that our customers value and have come to rely on to scale their offerings quickly and easily without sacrificing performance or quality.”
The toolkits in both the HOOPS Desktop Platform and the HOOPS Cloud Platform have been updated to be even more tightly integrated, making it much easier for Tech Soft 3D partners to develop their own applications to solve business problems. A recent integration between HOOPS Exchange technology and Siemens’ Parasolid® software helps developers enhance data re-use by providing easy access to a broad range of CAD formats. Tech Soft 3D worked closely with Siemens PLM Software to deliver an integrated product that helps developers leverage the full breadth of Parasolid functionality, even when working with imported data.
Performance continues to be a focus for the Platforms, making sure features such as file load speed and interactivity are as fast as possible.
