PRNewswire: Unigraphics Solutions Announces Parasolid Availability on Linux OS

Feb 17, 2000, 21:38 (2 Talkback[s])

"Unigraphics Solutions announces that its industry-leading kernel solid modeling product, Parasolid, is now available on the Linux operating system. The decision to support Linux demonstrates Unigraphics Solutions' continuing commitment to broaden the appeal of Parasolid's interoperable Data Pipeline as an industry standard for data sharing. Parasolid is licensed by a majority of the leading mainstream CAD/CAM/CAE vendors and will support the Linux version offered by Red Hat Software Inc."

"In response to the growing interest in the Linux operating system, Parasolid has been working closely with a number of customers who are preparing to release their 'Parasolid Powered' products on Linux," says Don Vossler, director of Business Development for Parasolid. "We are quickly approaching 500,000 end user seats on the Parasolid Data Pipeline. The support of Parasolid on Linux opens the benefits of interoperability to the Linux community."

"Many Parasolid customers who are leaders in their fields will be supporting their products on Linux. MSC.Software, for example, has demonstrated a commitment to Linux with recent initiatives including a new company division -- MSC.Linux, dedicated to the support of Linux products and services. "MSC.Software is engaged in expanding its current line of Linux-compatible solutions as part of an on-going drive to serve emerging markets," says Gregory Sikes, general manager, MSC.Linux Division. "Given the rapid adoption of the Linux platform by so many industries, our customers will certainly benefit from the decision by Unigraphics Solutions to offer a Linux version of the Parasolid kernel."
