BEND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- Oct 29, 2012 -- Tech Soft 3D, Inc. announces it is the global provider of all software development products developed by long-standing partner, Autodesk, Inc. AutoCAD OEM, the new Inventor OEM, and the RealDWG® SDK are available worldwide through Tech Soft 3D. Through this new agreement, software development teams can easily evaluate and license OEM products through a single source. The addition of Inventor OEM to the Tech Soft 3D portfolio builds on a long-standing relationship between the two companies that began in 2005 when Tech Soft 3D began managing worldwide RealDWG sales and was expanded in 2010 with sales for AutoCAD OEM in North America.
The introduction of Inventor OEM follows on Tech Soft 3D's success with AutoCAD OEM, a cost-effective development platform for developers building unique AutoCAD-based applications, which have broadened the choices for users seeking AutoCAD-based solutions. Both OEM platforms enable developers to either create new applications or extend existing AutoCAD or Inventor-based plug-ins into standalone offerings that can be scaled to niche markets. Through the OEM program, developers gain access to the Inventor and AutoCAD platforms and functionality, can pick desired features, and brand with signature elements, icons and visuals. Additional information regarding both products is available on Tech Soft 3D's website.
"Tech Soft 3D has helped drive adoption of AutoCAD OEM throughout the development community," says Bill Griffin, Autodesk vice president, worldwide channel. "With the addition of Inventor OEM, Tech Soft 3D is now the single source for Autodesk OEM products, and their knowledgeable team will help our customers to quickly implement these products and develop innovative and competitive products built on the AutoCAD and Inventor platforms."
"Our goal is to provide developers with a broad choice of technology to help them build successful applications," says Tech Soft 3D CEO, Ron Fritz. "We look forward to expanding the community of developers building on Autodesk's OEM platforms, and appreciate Autodesk's continued trust in Tech Soft 3D to drive this growth."
