Seemage partners with SolidWorks

Newton, MA, and Concord, MA—Seemage was appointed a SolidWorks Solution Partner with the SolidWorks 3D CAD software compatible 4.2.1 release of the Seemage system.


Newton, MA, and Concord, MASeemage was appointed a SolidWorks Solution Partner with the SolidWorks 3D CAD software compatible 4.2.1 release of the Seemage system. SolidWorks users can use Seemage to create product deliverables including animations, technical illustrations, and service procedures.

The system offers open, XML-based architecture, permits productivity on the desktop, integrates with enterprise systems, and allows non-engineering personnel to accurately and safely create the product deliverables they require directly from the 3D SolidWorks design data and to combine it with additional data such as bill-of-materials information from enterprise manufacturing systems.

“Today, 3D CAD data is increasingly recognized as a valuable enterprise-wide asset, which can be widely used beyond the engineering and design departments,” said Rainer Gawlick, SolidWorks vice president of worldwide marketing. “Now that Seemage is integrated with SolidWorks, delivering digital product information across the business will revolutionize processes like service and assembly procedures, training, manufacturing planning, marketing, and sales.”

Product designers can save a Seemage-formatted, XML-based file directly from within SolidWorks. All product structures including parts and assemblies are supported. In addition, any metadata created by the product designer (such as part names, custom properties, color, etc.) is managed by the Seemage integration. Seemage Sync can also be employed to automatically refresh downstream deliverables created from the Seemage files at any time, solving the problems and costs associated with late product design changes, says the company.

Seemage is hosting a live Webinar on Aug. 29, 2007. Users can register for the live session or watch a replay by visiting .
