Geometric launches GeomCaliperT for CATIA® V5
Product will be showcased at COE 2005

MUMBAI, India, March 16, 2005 - Geometric Software Solutions (Geometric), a leader in product lifecycle management (PLM) services and technologies, today announced the launch of GeomCaliper for CATIA V5.

GeomCaliper is an innovative tool for measuring and checking the wall thickness of CATIA V5 3D models. It is easy to use and can be accessed within a CATIA V5 session, providing immediate feedback to designers during the design process itself. Among other applications, it will help engineers to quickly detect thin areas in plastic molded components that may result into warps, or thick sections in castings that may result in hot spots. Minimal training is required to use the tool and interpret the generated results.

GeomCaliper provides users with:

. Quick and accurate thickness calculation
. 2D and 3D thickness values at specified sections
. Intuitive graphical display of results
. Identification and display of regions with thickness in a given range
. "Dynamic" and "Point click" display of thickness data
. Report generation in XML/HTML format
. Printing support

GeomCaliper is based on Dassault Systèmes Component Application Architecture (CAA V5) and leverages the CATIA V5 Mechanical Design configuration. CATIA V5 customers will benefit from its 3D oriented productivity features such as advanced thickness map display and manipulation.

The pre-release version of GeomCaliper for CATIA V5 supports CATIA V5 R12, R13, and R14.

Geometric will showcase the product at COE 2005 Annual PLM Conference and Technifair; being held on March 21-23, 2005, Phoenix, Arizona.

Detailed product information and limited period trial version of GeomCaliper for CATIA V5 is available at Geometric's site.
