More news on the strategic partnership front to promote the use of 3D as a universal media. CAD and PLM leader Dassault Systems is teaming up with Seemage Inc. to build tighter integration between their respective product lines.
Together with the Dassault lineup, Seemage’s tools, used to deliver product information and CAD data in different formats throughout the enterprise, will provide customers will a seamless link between product documentation and PLM product-related data. Company officials say the integration will help eliminate all disparities between product-related IP and any required product documentation, including animations, training illustrations, maintenance manuals and service procedures.
Seemage’s XML-based architecture integrates with other enterprise systems and allows users to exploit 3D data from CAD platforms, meaning that content can be created for any desired output in formats, including Microsoft Office documents, PDF and HTML.
Other PLM vendors have already built similar bridges in the area of digital product content production. PTC, for one, has been working towards this goal following its acquisition of Arbortext.
