Troy-based solidThinking Inc. announced last week that it had signed Cambridge, England-based Cadsoft Solutions Ltd. to its network of worldwide distributors.

As the company’s United Kingdom-based distributor, Cadsoft Solutions will introduce its creative design and architectural customer base to the extensive design capabilities of solidThinking 8.5 and solidThinking 8.5 Inspired.

“This new relationship further emphasizes the international interest surrounding solidThinking,” said Jim Hassberger, solidThinking vice president of business development. “Adding a prominent U.K. distributor such as Cadsoft Solutions to our growing network provides the opportunity to extend our reach within the global design community and highlight how solidThinking can complement the concept development process.”

Cadsoft Solutions provides two- and three-dimensional computer aided design software that enables product development and design. The addition of solidThinking to its product portfolio will further enhance Cadsoft Solutions’ ability to provide its customers with the latest in concept design technology.

“solidThinking’s powerful conceptual tool set and cross platform compatibility make it an ideal addition to our product portfolio,” said Nicholas Johnson, founder of Cadsoft Solutions. “True surface modeling history via solidThinking’s ConstructionTree and the ability to rapidly explore organic forms through solidThinking Inspired’s Morphogenesis technology are just some of the highlights which will enhance design flexibility and value.”

SolidThinking, a NURBS-based software, offers conceptual modeling, high-quality visualization tools and fast real-time photorealistic rendering for design presentation. Its best-in-class ConstructionTree technology allows designers to experiment with designs without having to start from scratch when changing their minds. SolidThinking is available on Mac and Windows operating systems and is compatible with leading CAD/CAID/CAE software, encouraging enhanced collaboration and productivity between industrial designers and engineers during the product development cycle.

For designers and architects who are interested in exploring with form generation to enhance and structurally optimize their initial design concepts, solidThinking offers solidThinking Inspired software. With solidThinking Inspired, users can apply Morphogenesis form-generation technology — which draws on the principles of biomimicry — to grow efficient shapes in response to environmental forces and pressures.
