Vancouver, B.C.– Safe Software announced the release of FME 2012 Service Pack 3 (SP3), which features compatibility with Esri’s newly released ArcGIS 10.1 and support of Autodesk’s 2013 version of AutoCAD Map 3D. FME 2012 SP3’s timely support of the latest versions of these industry-leading programs ensures that FME users can upgrade without issues or delays.

FME 2012 SP3 allows users dependent on both FME and ArcGIS to upgrade to the newest version of Esri’s software without having to worry about losing functionality of either program. The update will also provide access to several new features including Windows 64-bit support for more Geodatabase formats, and the ability to write out LAS files produced in FME for use within ArcGIS.

Safe continues to assist AutoCAD Map 3D users through its support of the newly released FDO 3.7 in FME 2012 SP3. This allows the AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 user to directly read and display dozens of FME-supported formats.

“As with every new version, this latest release of FME demonstrates our commitment to supporting the latest technologies as quickly as possible so that our customers always have access to the most advanced spatial data applications,” says Dale Lutz, vice president of development at Safe Software.

Safe maintains comprehensive format compatibility and FME remains backwards compatible for users of earlier versions of ArcGIS and FDO. To download FME 2012 SP3, visit
