TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Nov. 29, 2011) – Tri-D Technologies, makers of ExactFlat CAD software, announced today that IMAGINiT Technologies, a division of Rand Worldwide (OTCBB:RWWI), is the latest organization to join their growing partner network. ExactFlat products enable customers to convert the most complex 3D CAD models into production-ready 2D flat patterns in just minutes. Integrated with Autodesk Inventor 3D CAD software, ExactFlat extends the power of Autodesk Inventor to solve the 3D flattening problem.
“ExactFlat’s 3D-to-2D advanced flattening technology has been used by some of the largest, most demanding and advanced manufacturers for years”, said Steven McLendon, Executive Vice President of ExactFlat. “Partnering with IMAGINiT, we’re excited to bring our innovative products to a broader base of regional, national and global manufacturers working within the industrial fabrics space.”
Working together, ExactFlat and IMAGINiT are demonstrating for customers how they can better leverage their existing technology to keep the entire design and engineering workflow on the desktop – eliminating expensive and slow manual processes that impact every manufacturer working with industrial fabrics.
“ExactFlat has solved a significant problem in the CAD market”, said Bob Heeg, Senior Vice President of Sales at IMAGINiT. “We kept hearing from our customers that solid modeling and surface modeling were disconnected, necessitating a highly-manual, repetitious process that included modeling, draping and digitizing. With ExactFlat, our customers can instantly close this gap inside Autodesk Inventor and drive tremendous efficiencies from 3D CAD right through to the cutting table.”
ExactFlat, developed by Tri-D Technologies Inc., develops products to save manufacturers time, money and effort when converting 3D CAD models into 2D cut patterns for manufacturers working with industrial fabrics, recognizing that faster time to market equates to more time in the market. ExactFlat, integrated with leading 3D CAD platforms, is an advanced 3D-to-2D automatic pattern part generation system for industrial fabrics and digital texturing. Engineers and designers across a wide range of industries – including automotive, marine, architecture, tent, awning, pool liners, furniture, and fashion – incorporate ExactFlat into their design to production workflow to get fast, accurate results every time. ExactFlat was founded in 2008 and is based in Toronto, Canada. For more information, visit www.exactflat.com.
