IronCAD Licenses HOOPS Framework From TSA

IronCAD, the Innovative Design Collaboration Solutions Company, and Tech Soft America (TSA), the leading provider of component graphics technology to the CAD/CAM/CAE industry, today announced a licensing agreement whereby IronCAD will leverage TSA's HOOPS 3D Application Framework (HOOPS/3dAF) to deliver their new free IronCAD viewer.

Shaun Murphy, Vice President of Marketing for IronCAD noted, "HOOPS/3dAF encapsulates much of the graphics and framework that we would have had to spend time and money developing ourselves. It enabled us to quickly deliver a powerful solution to our end users for the viewing and navigation of IronCAD models and assemblies while we focused our resources on our core areas of expertise to best serve our growing and loyal customer base."

Ron Fritz, Managing Partner for TSA added, "We are gratified to know that HOOPS/3dAF enabled IronCAD to move so quickly and add such value for their user community. This is precisely the promise of the HOOPS components - that you can spend your R&D time and effort where it matters most rather than reinventing the graphics and viewer technologies already available within the HOOPS/3dAF libraries."

About the HOOPS 3D Application Framework
HOOPS/3dAF is an extensible, high-level component that dramatically simplifies the design, development and maintenance of high-performance, interactive 2D/3D applications for Windows, UNIX, LINUX, MAC OS X, Windows CE devices or the Web. Companies such as IronCAD, SolidWorks, PTC, MSC.Software, Autodesk/CAiCE, Bentley/Infrasoft, KubotekUSA, Proficiency, LK and over 175 others license HOOPS technology to help them build better engineering software products faster.

With HOOPS/3dAF the base infrastructure for building extremely custom, advanced performance applications is already optimally designed and built. Developers work from a high level to extend and customize the framework, taking advantage of the power of the underlying set of components and vast functionality already encapsulated within the HOOPS product set.
