Proven 3D CAD Search Tool for PLM Features High-Level Data Access Technology

BERKELEY, CA and EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) -  Tech Soft 3D (TS3D), leading provider of component technology to the engineering software industry, and ShapeSpace Ltd, developer of world-leading search technology for CAD and PLM, announced today that the ShapeSpace Enterprise Solution will feature the advanced data access capabilities of HOOPS® 3D Exchange (HOOPS 3DX) in 2011.

Now integrated with most PLM applications, ShapeSpace Enterprise Solution's unique 3D Shape Search function locates criteria within complex CAD libraries, be it parts, size, text attributes or shape.
