ANSYS SpaceClaim Signs Top New Resellers and Expands Sales Force

Resellers Leverage Surging Market Shift to 3D Tools That Are Fast, Flexible and Affordable

Concord, MA, November 24th, 2010: ANSYS SpaceClaim, the leader in 3D Direct Modeling solutions for rapid concept design and geometry manipulation, today announced new resellers across the Mid-Atlantic and Mid-West regions. The new resellers include Solid Technologies, and 3DP, and represent ANSYS SpaceClaim’s aggressive strategy to continue to build the US-Americas channel and expand the sales force. These resellers join a rapidly expanding list including EMS, covering the Southern region.

“We’re increasingly hearing from our customers that they need a tool that will help their engineers easily and quickly innovate, design, edit and prepare models for analysis. This trend is fueling a dynamic shift toward 3D direct modeling rather than more complex solutions,” said Ben Marino, President/CEO of Solid Technologies. “ANSYS SpaceClaim is a natural choice for us to add to our arsenal, open up new opportunities and win more business. We are integrating ANSYS SpaceClaim into the solutions we provide our customer base and helping them maximize their design options and deliver outstanding results.”

ANSYS SpaceClaim’s groundbreaking 3D Direct Modeling solution, ANSYS SpaceClaim Engineer, enables sales, concept and simulation engineers to rapidly and effectively use 3D to solve business, engineering and geometry problems. Resellers are able to help their customers win more business, shorten the time-to-market, and drive new levels of innovation through ANSYS SpaceClaim’s ease of use, flexibility, and compatibility with traditional CAD products.

“We look forward to working with our new resellers as they expand their markets and leverage new opportunities,” said Steve Costello, Vice President of Sales, Americas, ANSYS SpaceClaim. “We are aggressively building out our channel and partner relationships to meet the demand for engineering tools that are easy to use, require little to no training and are powerful enough to handle complex tasks in concept modeling, bid modeling and model preparation for CAE simulation. ANSYS SpaceClaim was designed from the ground up as the optimal solution for 3D direct modeling.”
