MAY 2--Breault Research Organization (BRO; Tucson, AZ, USA; www.breault.com), manufacturer of ASAP Optical Software, announced a formal partnership with SolidWorks Corporation (Concord, MA, USA; www.solidworks.com), manufacturer of the SolidWorks 3D Modeling Engine. BRO is now part of SolidWorks Corporation's OEM distributor network. As an OEM distributor developing next-generation optical software, BRO intends to unite optical simulation features with the CAD visualization and modeling tools. Under the terms of this partnership, BRO will now ship CAD-interoperable optical software products and maintenance continuations with the latest SolidWorks Parts 3D Modeling Engine.

While BRO will continue its partnership with McNeel & Associates, manufacturer of the Rhinoceros NURBS Modeling package, Rhinoceros software releases will no longer be included with BRO products or maintenance continuations. However, the ASAP IGES format embedded in Rhinoceros shall remain in place so that established interoperability is unaffected.
