Breault Research Organization (BRO) Partners with SolidWorks to Become OEM Distributor; SolidWorks Parts 3D Modeling Engine Now Available with ASAP
TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2007--Breault Research Organization (BRO), manufacturer of ASAP® Optical Software, is pleased to announce a formal partnership with SolidWorks Corporation, manufacturer of the SolidWorks® 3D Modeling Engine. BRO is now part of SolidWorks Corporation's OEM Distributor network.
As an OEM Distributor developing next-generation optical software, BRO intends to unite optical simulation features with the CAD visualization and modeling tools product designers in industry depend upon -- setting new capability and ease-of-use standards for optical software tools.
Under the terms of this partnership, BRO will now ship CAD-interoperable optical software products and maintenance continuations with the latest SolidWorks Parts Only 3D Modeling Engine.
While BRO will continue its partnership with McNeel & Associates, manufacturer of the Rhinoceros® NURBS Modeling package, Rhinoceros software releases will no longer be included with BRO products or maintenance continuations. However, the ASAP IGES format embedded in Rhinoceros shall remain in place so that established interoperability is unaffected.
According to BRO's VP of Global Sales Kimberly Matty, "Customer demand for greater CAD interoperability has inspired this partnership, which will improve the workflow between mechanical and optical engineers, and make optical simulations accessible to engineers in disparate fields."
