ANSYS, SpaceClaim Renew License, Distribution Agreement
MA, Jan 8, 2013 - SpaceClaim, providing the world’s fastest and most
innovative 3D Direct Modeling solutions, and ANSYS, the leading provider of
engineering simulation solutions, today announced that they have extended
their license and distribution agreement originally signed in 2009.
The engineering fidelity of the ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler joint offering
has fostered innovation, lowered product costs, and reduced time-to-market.
SpaceClaim and ANSYS have worked together for the past five years to provide
an industry-leading environment for engineering simulation, revolutionizing
engineers’ ability to use simulation to drive their product development
SpaceClaim will now be bundled with a variety of existing ANSYS offerings,
including ANSYS DesignSpace, ANSYS Mechanical PrepPost, and ANSYS CFD
PrepPost. These bundles will put SpaceClaim directly in the hands of
engineers involved with early concept phase design work, where engineering
simulation can deliver low-cost, high-impact system optimization, upstream
of building the first physical prototype.
“Ease-of-use and the ability to quickly analyze many different design
variations are crucial for a company to be confident that its products will
be successful in the real world,” said Barry Christenson, director of
product management at ANSYS.
“Our customers enjoy the streamlined workflow efficiencies from ANSYS
SpaceClaim Direct Modeler and we look forward to working more closely with
SpaceClaim in the future.” “We have been extremely pleased with how our
partnership with ANSYS has developed,” said Rich Moore, SpaceClaim VP of
“Our business relationship is very strong, and we continue to be amazed at what
our mutual customers are able to accomplish. We welcome this opportunity to
expand our relationship with ANSYS and make SpaceClaim more available to its
global customer base,” he added. These new bundles are available today and
