Weekly updates.

Spatial Corp., Boulder, Colo., announced the success of its worldwide University Partner Program. The program provides a full function ACIS 3D modeling and interoperability package to nonprofit institutions. It is free for classroom use and to those that join the University Incentive Plan.

Since its launch in early 2001, the program has created partnerships with over 100 new academic and research institutions. The program implemented first university licensees in places such as Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Estonia and South Africa.

According to Professor Robert Joan-Arinyo, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya in Catalonia, Spain, “It is very important to expose our students to a widely used geometric modeler like ACIS, and we anticipate the benefits to reach far beyond the classroom as we prepare these students for successful careers in the European and International design and manufacturing industries.”
