3DQuickPress at METALFORM '06


Buffalo Grove, IL, March 21, 2006 — 3DQuickTools Ltd., the leader in 3D die design automation, today announced the third major release of 3DQuickPress® and related products. This release is composed of more than 150 innovative and user requested enhancements. These enhancements improve system, unfolding, strip layout, punch design, die set design, sketching tools, detailing, and customization capabilities of 3DQuickPress. 3DQuickPress V3 will be showcased at METALFORM ’06 in Nashville, TN, March 21-23, 2006 in booth 424.

"We have met with a variety of customers and clients in the metal stamping industry to understand their current day to day pressures and productivity bottlenecks with 2D and 3D CAD design methods. With their comments, advice, and practical experience, we challenged our research and development team to solve their needs. Version 3 was created to solve much more than 2D and 3D CAD limitations for die designers. It was designed to empower die designers to utilize the true power of 3D automation”, states C.H. Lai, Director of R&D, 3D QuickTools Ltd.

“Version 3 is a milestone to symbolize that 3D die design is no longer at the infant stage. Many leading tool and die companies in North America are implementing 3DQuickPress for production tool design. The main reason our product is being implemented is that it is much more than just 3D. 3DQuickPress can automate the users style of design--including 2D detail drawings--without complex programming”, said Robert Konczal, President of Strategic Technology Solutions (STS), the value-added distributor of 3DQuickPress.
