Product stylists require seamless data exchange between surfacing and design applications. They need an affordable and intuitive mechanical design tool to create details and components they integrate into their product designs. Rhinoceros from McNeel & Associates is a free-form 3-D modeling tool. SpaceClaim exchanges 3-D data with Rhino, so product stylists can include 3-D mechanical design elements in their designs and deliverables. The solution allows Rhino files to be opened directly in SpaceClaim, modified and returned to Rhino in native format.
