Bologna, Italy and Berkeley, CA – September 18, 2012 – Tech Soft 3D and think3, creator of 2D and 3D CAD design solutions for the manufacturing industry, announce that the latest release of ThinkDesign is integrated with HOOPS® Exchange and HOOPS Publish. ThinkDesign, think3’s advanced parametric CAD system dedicated to solid, surface and hybrid modeling, is scheduled to ship in the third quarter of 2012.

HOOPS Exchange and HOOPS Publish are data access libraries and 3D PDF Publishing SDKs developed by Tech Soft 3D, the leading provider of software development tools to the engineering software industry.  These technologies enhance ThinkDesign’s portability with extensive 3D CAD data access and the ability to output rich, ISO-standard 3D PDF files.
