Original Press Release:

CoCreate's OneSpace Designer Makes the Most of Engineering Designs

Lightweight viewing and enterprise system integration opens engineering data to the entire company

FORT COLLINS, Colo., and SINDELFINGEN, Germany - May 31, 2005 - CoCreate Software, Inc., a leading provider of flexible CAD and collaborative PLM software applications, today announced the release of 13.20 for OneSpace Designer 2005. This version includes the previously announced XVL Converter module for CoCreate's 3D CAD product and introduces a new version of integration with the mySAP(TM) Product Lifecycle Management (mySAP PLM) solution.

XVL Converter

Lattice3D's XVL publishing technology is now available within CoCreate's 3D CAD product, OneSpace Designer Modeling. With the module, Designer Modeling users can export their 3D CAD designs to XVL, a popular, lightweight 3D graphics format. These smaller 3D files (typically compressed to ~2% the size of the original) can then be easily shared with the extended team. Recipients view the file using a free XVL Player, a small downloadable plug-in for both Internet Explorer and Netscape.

The XVL Converter module adds to the number of lightweight viewing formats already available within Designer Modeling for publishing 3D CAD designs - helping to enable collaboration within the design process and extending the reach of 3D design data across the organization.

Integration with mySAP PLM

OneSpace Designer's integration with mySAP PLM provides complete mapping of the lightweight CAD model and drawing files and associated data in mySAP PLM.
