CoCreate’s Personal Edition an International Success
September 07, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsFORT COLLINS, Colo. and SINDELFINGEN, Germany – September 7, 2007 – CoCreate Software, Inc., a leading provider of 3rd generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, today announced the extension of its international free 3D CAD program - CoCreate OneSpace Modeling Personal Edition (PE).
OneSpace Modeling PE is a freely available download offering all the power of CoCreate’s enterprise OneSpace Modeling 3D CAD software for assemblies up to 60 parts. Tens of thousands of users from over 100 countries worldwide have taken advantage of this program to experience CoCreate’s dynamic difference, with nearly 90 percent of OneSpace Modeling PE users being new to CoCreate’s Dynamic Modeling based approach.
CoCreate has extended the worldwide program — with no planned end date — based upon the phenomenal success and the continuing growth rate.

The free to download and use 3D CAD software is available in English, German, Italian and Japanese versions.
Individuals and companies wanting to grow into the CoCreate platform have an easy path to move from the personal edition to the professional version.
Both traditional and subscription licensing (rent versus own) give new customers the purchasing flexibility that is right for them. Additionally, all 2D drawings and 3D models created within OneSpace Modeling PE can be unlocked and carried over to CoCreate’s full production environment.
“I used OneSpace Modeling PE to evaluate CoCreate’s product because I was frustrated with the complexity of history-based 3D CAD systems. I couldn’t believe how intuitive it was. In 25 minutes I made a complex molded part with lots of great features. All I can say is WOW! It was so simple,” said Dan Corbosiero, Engineering Manager, of DynoTune, a manufacturer of nitrous systems for the speed and performance market, and new CoCreate customer.
Additionally, existing 2D and 3D CAD data from other CAD systems are easily modified in CoCreate OneSpace Modeling where industry standard neutral file formats are the equivalent of native data. The unparalleled interoperability of a history-free approach means there are no switching costs when moving to CoCreate.
“I imported 3D models originally created in a history-based CAD system into OneSpace Modeling using an IGES file and then carried it forward. It worked great,” continued Corbosiero.
OneSpace Modeling PE is succeeding in driving further awareness within the market that there are two approaches to 3D product development; both history-based and Dynamic Modeling based approaches.
New user feedback supports that a Dynamic Modeling based approach is just simply easier to learn and use.
“I am so lucky that I saw your product in an article in one of my trade journals. I cannot begin to tell you how much easier it is to use your product versus history-based systems. Your product is a winner,” said Dave White, new OneSpace Modeling PE user.
“I like using this baby. I do not think any other 3D CAD modeling program can be made easier to use but I am always being surprised these days.
This is not a history-based CAD program but a dynamic modeler and a truly great one at that,” said Richard Williams, new OneSpace Modeling PE user.
CoCreate’s free 3D CAD program has not only introduced existing 3D CAD users to a new approach to product development, it has also introduced 2D CAD users and users without any CAD at all to the benefits that come with 3D.
CoCreate considers this another measure of the program’s success by boosting the awareness of the benefits of 3D product development to the broader industry - whether it be for personal or professional use.
“OneSpace Modeling Personal Edition has been a tremendous success. This program has started conversations with tens of thousands of people across the world. In nearly all cases, we are speaking with people that are both new to CoCreate and new to a Dynamic Modeling based approach to 3D product development. We are excited to continue to offer this very successful international program,” said William M. Gascoigne, CoCreate CEO.
