Creaform signs with Dassault Systemes

24 de outubro de 2007

LÉVIS, October 25th, 2007Creaform is proud to announce the creation of a value-added reseller (VAR) partnership with Dassault Systemes, the world leader in 3D and PLM solutions.

Under the terms of this new agreement settled last August, Creaform can sell CATIA V5 and Dassault Systemes’ complete PLM solution to its customer base throughout Canada and the United States. Moreover, Creaform will offer training sessions for many workbenches as well as technical support. Since Creaform is a long-term and intensive user of CATIA V5 in many fields of activity, its appointment as Dassault Systemes’ VAR appeared only natural for both stakeholders.

This partnership brings new opportunities to Creaform, as the company’s portfolio of products grows to fulfil the 3D technology needs of a wider range of clients. Within the scope of this partnership and in addition to Dassault’s highly efficient and powerful products, Creaform can offer its clients a true and complete laser scanning, reverse engineering and CAD solution at a competitive price. When packaged with one of the powerful laser scanners from the Handyscan 3D™ line-up of products and the Handyscan Scanning Module™ (HSM) data acquisition software, CATIA V5 offers the only true reverse engineering solution and CAD platform on the market.

Creaform and Dassault Systemes partner in a CAA program since February 2007, under which the HSM™ was developed. This data acquisition software fully integrates the process of scanning 3D objects with the Handyscan 3D™ laser scanners, as well as most VxScan™ functions and features, into CATIA V5. The software also outputs a CATIA V5 file ready for post processing, model re-construction, surfacing and 3D inspection operations to gain efficiency.
