> Spatial Technology Brings 3D Computing to Every Business Desktop
> BOULDER, Colo., June 4 /PRNewswire/ - Spatial Technology Inc.
> (AMEX: STY) today announced that Intel Corporation will make
> available Spatial's ACIS(R) 3D Viewer(TM), a free utility for
> viewing and "cutting and pasting" 3D models into Internet/Extranet
> web sites and Microsoft(R) Office applications. The ACIS 3D Viewer
> provides business users a new level of graphical access to 3D
> engineering data in design and manufacturing companies, where the
> majority of 3D content resides today. The Viewer will be
> distributed via download from Intel's - - and
> Spatial's - - World Wide Web sites.
> "There is already a huge amount of 3D engineering content in
> the manufacturing marketplace," said David Prawel, Director of
> Marketing for Spatial Technology. "The Viewer provides an open
> window to this existing 3D content, enabling broader use for sales,
> marketing, financial or other business needs - wherever dynamic 3D
> models provide added value or visual impact. It also features an
> uncomplicated interface and does not require the months of training
> needed for other applications that are the hallmark of 3D software
> to date. The expanded use of 3D engineering information throughout
> the enterprise is changing the way companies do business."
> The ACIS 3D Viewer is an ActiveX application which can be
> embedded in a company's web page, or used as a standalone
> application for viewing, sharing and manipulating 3D models in
> Microsoft Office applications. It supports dynamic rotation,
> panning and zooming of 3D models in real-time, and includes
> controls for background color management and interaction with the
> Windows clipboard. The Viewer stores models in ACIS SAT(TM) file
> format, which is both smaller and richer in information than VRML.
> The ACIS SAT format is supported by over 100 commercially-available
> 3D graphics applications for CAD, CAM, multimedia and virtual
> reality. There are currently over 100 commercially-available
> ACIS/SAT applications and 650,000 end users of ACIS/SAT technology.
> System Requirements
> The ACIS 3D Viewer runs on Microsoft Windows 95 or NT 3.51 or
> later operating systems. Minimum system requirements are an IBM-
> compatible 486DX personal computer and 16MB RAM. Recommended
> configuration is a Pentium or Pentium II computer with 24MB RAM.
> Background Information
> ACIS is the most widely-used 3D modeling software tool in the
> Computer- Aided Design (CAD) industry, with over 650,000 users of
> ACIS-enabled CAD/CAE/CAM systems, such as AutoCAD (Autodesk, Inc.),
> Bravo (Applicon, Inc.), CADKEY (Baystate Technologies, Inc.),
> CorelCAD (Corel Corporation), Solid Edge (Intergraph Corporation),
> TriSpectives (3D/EYE, Inc.), TurboCAD (IMSI), ElectricImage 3D
> Modeler (Electric Image), and over a hundred others.
> About Spatial Technology
> Spatial Technology is a leading developer of three dimensional
> (3D) modeling software for growing worldwide markets. Spatial
> introduced ACIS in 1989 as the world's first commercial, object-
> oriented, 3D modeling toolkit. The Company licenses its 3D modeling
> software to application developers in technical, business and
> consumer markets, enabling them to incorporate advanced 3D modeling
> functionality into their applications. ACIS is used as the
> modeling foundation for applications in CAD/CAM/CAE, Animation,
> Virtual Reality, Entertainment, Multi-Media, Education,
> Architectural Engineering and Industrial Design and has become the
> world's most widely used 3D modeling "engine."
> With headquarters in Boulder, CO, Spatial also has wholly owned
> subsidiaries in Tokyo, Japan, and Monchengladbach, Germany. Visit
