Seemage Releases Seemage 4.2

New Release Advances the State-of-the-Art for Producing Product Deliverables Directly From 3D CAD Models and for Integration With PLM Systems

NEWTON, MA and PARIS--(Marketwire - June 6, 2007) - Seemage Inc. ( announced today the worldwide availability of Seemage 4.2. Seemage 4.2 contains dozens of updates and new features that extend Seemage's industry-leading platform for producing product documentation and service procedures directly from any 3D CAD system.

Seemage 4.2 Extends Performance and Capability Across the Enterprise

Highlights of the important new features available in Seemage 4.2 include:

--  Automatic regeneration of downstream deliverables. Without the need
    for any additional servers, Seemage 4.2 now automatically regenerates all
    product documentation whenever the digital product definition changes. By
    eliminating requirements for additional servers and integrating easily with
    PLM systems, Seemage 4.2 offers users and IT administrators the best of all
    worlds: automation and performance without the headaches of additional
    servers and system changes.
--  ProductGrabber™. This revolutionary new capability decreases by
    orders of magnitude the cost and effort required to create and publish
    product configurations.  With ProductGrabber, manufacturers can easily
    produce unlimited product variations by simply combining Seemage saved
--  Quick search available across the Seemage product line. Seemage is
    well-known for its superior performance in managing models with tens of
    thousands of parts. Now, that performance is extended to search in all
    Seemage authoring and viewing tools, including the free Seemage Player.
    With quick search, users can easily zero in on the exact information for
    which they are looking.
--  Integration with Auto-trol Tech Illustrator™. Seemage 4.2 and Tech
    Illustrator now deliver the industry's most comprehensive system for
    producing illustrations that comply with important 2D commercial and
    governmental standards like S1000D, ATA iSPEC 2200 and WebCGM 2.0. Users
    can easily transfer Seemage-created 2D content directly into Tech
    Illustrator format to assure standards compliance.
--  BOM fidelity. In Seemage 4.2, bill-of-material (BOM) information
    dynamically changes based on the active product definition. For example,
    with BOM fidelity, the assembler of a product has access to what components
    have been used, what components are being used in the current assembly step
    and what components remain to be completed.
"Seemage 4.2 is a major step forward in the product's evolution," said Eric Piccuezzu, executive vice president and co-founder, Seemage Inc. "Unlike competitive server-based solutions, our open XML-based architecture provides desktop productivity without forcing complex IT infrastructure. With Seemage 4.2, we have increased further Seemage's leadership in functionality and performance."

A Complete System for Product Documentation

The Seemage 4.2 system consists of Seemage Viz, Seemage Mockup and Seemage Publisher for creating product content from 3D CAD models. Seemage Player is freely distributable and offers users many useful features in addition to viewing Seemage-authored content.

Seemage 4.2 also includes Seemage Secure3D for security, Seemage Rights Manager for access control, Seemage Importers for data import, Seemage Sync for data synchronization and Seemage Clash for interference checking.

Seemage 4.2 is available directly from Seemage and from Seemage's worldwide network of distribution partners.
