Belmont Technology Incorporated (Belmont) has licensed Siemens’ Parasolid software and D-Cubed software components to be the foundation of a new generation of cloud-based applications for the CAD/CAM/CAE market.
Belmont is a venture backed software start-up founded by CAD industry veterans. The Belmont team, which includes Founder and Chairman, Jon Hirschtick, and CEO John McEleney will use Parasolid and D-Cubed components to provide the solid modelling and geometric constraint solving capabilities fundamental to modern CAD/CAM/CAE applications. Parasolid and D-Cubed components are developed by Siemens’ PLM software business unit.
Hirschtick explains that the Parasolid and D-Cubed components proved themselves to be the leading technologies for Belmont to deliver the best possible products to their future customers.
Belmont will use the Parasolid Designer software, along with the D-Cubed 2D DCM (Dimensional Constraint Manager) and the D-Cubed 3D DCM products. The company cited the products’ superiority across a broad range of criteria including functionality, performance, quality, compatibility with cloud computing platforms, and compatibility with multi-processor architectures.
Belmont also noted that its confidence in Siemens as a trusted, open supplier of PLM software component technology was a critical factor in their decision.
Chuck Grindstaff, President and CEO, Siemens PLM Software comments that the important new relationship is a clear indication of Siemens’ technical leadership and reputation as the most trusted supplier of PLM software component technology on the market. Siemens’ philosophy of licensing its PLM Components toolkits to other software vendors enables more end-users and suppliers to benefit from proven technology, strengthening the company’s position as a PLM software company with a culture of openness.
