SpaceClaim adds value to existing CAD infrastructure by enabling all engineers to leverage existing data and contribute to product definition in 3D. SpaceClaim can seamlessly open and edit 2D and 3D data from almost any CAD system and manipulate lightweight geometry from digital mockup formats such as JT. SpaceClaim can edit foreign data just as easily as if it were created in SpaceClaim itself. SpaceClaim also produces precise, accurate 3D data and 2D drawings to specify detailed design in CAD, creating the most effective handoff to CAD possible. By allowing all engineers to communicate in 3D and 2D, teams can eliminate much of the waste and rework associated with monolithic CAD processes.
