Cimmetry Ships AutoVue 18 - Bridging the Gap Between MCAD & EDA in a Digital Mockup Environment

    MONTREAL -(MARKots) Cimmetry Systems, the global leader in Visualization and Collaboration solutions for the A/E/C, Engineering, Manufacturing and Electronics markets, today announced that AutoVue 18 is released and shipping. With AutoVue 18, Visualization and Collaboration functionality has gone beyond the conventional to include Digital Mockup (DMU) and design validation.

    "With AutoVue 18, Cimmetry has included MCAD and EDA functionality that goes beyond the capabilities of traditional viewing & markup applications," says Martyn Day, Group Editor at cadserver, MCAD and AEC Magazines. "By providing multiple CAD digital mockup (DMU), AutoVue has become a powerful design validation tool for engineering teams which may run different CAD systems, in different geographical locations. The ability to combine multi-source electronics and mechanical parts, components and assemblies in a DMU environment and perform analysis, such as clash detection, will prove invaluable for the growing number of EDA and MCAD designers. These are unique capabilities and strengthen Cimmetry's position in the engineering market. It's very impressive."

    Ken Versprille, Partner, PLM Research Director at CPDA says, "AutoVue 18's digital mockup is a leap forward in visualization and collaboration technology that will help bridge the gap between EDA, 3D mechanical design, and manufacturing. The product's strong capabilities in 3D interference checking, EDA design verification, and innovative cross-probe functionality make it a leading solution for manufacturing companies."

    AutoVue 18 adds support for many new formats and contains significant new features that include:

    Digital Mockup (DMU)
    --  The ability to import and combine any number of native CAD
          files, regardless of file format, to create a virtual assembly
          including: CATIA, Pro/E, UG, SolidWorks, Inventor, JT, Solid
          Edge, etc.
    --  The ability to combine native MCAD and EDA (3D PCBs) in a
          digital mockup
