Helsinki, FINLAND, June 5, 2002 – DeskArtes announced today the new
version 5.1 of the Design Expert software with a price offer which
enables small and even one man companies to enter the world of
professional 3D CAD.

DeskArtes Design Expert is a surface modeling system, which provides a
full range of functionality for interactive free-form curve and surface
design. The product is designed especially for users with no previous
background of 3D CAD. While the software is frequently applied for
conceptual design by manner of sketching of aesthetically pleasing
shapes, it is just as well applicable for accurate detail design of
production-ready complex parts. The results can be presented with
photorealistic renderings or sent to manufacturing processes using IGES,
VDA-FS or STL formats.

allowing smaller users and one man operators to start using professional
3D CAD. Current DeskArtes customers include major car manufacturing
companies, largest European glass and ceramic manufacturers as well as

of DeskArtes. ”With the new aggressive pricing and with improved
products and customer support we want to be at the leading edge of this
