SAN RAFAEL, CALIF. (Jan. 25) BUSINESS WIRE -Jan. 25, 1999-- StereoGraphics,
the world's leading supplier of Stereo3D visualization products, announced
today that it has become a SolidWorks Solution Partner. SolidWorks(R)
software users can now enhance their 3D mechanical computer aided design
(MCAD) capabilities with Stereo3D visualization products from

"StereoGraphics offers a free SolidWorks software plug-in which, when used
in conjunction with our Stereo3D visualization products, enables users to
view their complex models more realistically," said Bob Derezinski, vice
president, sales and marketing, StereoGraphics Corporation. "Stereo3D
visualization of complex models enables reduced errors, enhanced design
review and accelerated time-to-market."

"We are pleased to add StereoGraphics' line of Stereo3D visualization
products to our SolidWorks Solution Partner program," said Bob McGill,
Solution Partner Program manager, SolidWorks. "Companies must meet a
rigorous set of standards to qualify as a SolidWorks Solution Partner. The
ability to view designs in Stereo3D gives our users a substantial
productivity advantage in design visualization."

StereoGraphics products deliver high-definition, stereoscopic 3D images in
conjunction with compatible software and standard workstation displays.
StereoGraphics has recently announced CrystalEyes Wired, a set of low-cost
Stereo3D visualization eyewear, ideal for SolidWorks users. Designed
specifically for the Windows NT market, CrystalEyes Wired is available for
a suggested retail price of $299 (US).

All of StereoGraphics products, including CrystalEyes Wired, CrystalEyes
and the Monitor ZScreen, utilize Stereo3D technology. Stereo3D is the use
of computer technology to recreate the way we naturally see depth --
stereoscopically. Stereoscopic viewing describes how we use both eyes --
each with a slightly different perspective -- to perceive depth and
perspective in a physical environment. Stereo3D delivers the most realistic
visual representation possible of complex digital models, giving
architects, engineers and scientists the best possible understanding of
three-dimensional information and yields levels of technical proficiency
not available using a typical 3D view. SolidWorks Software Plug-In
