Sigmetrix To Deliver Interoperability Solutions With PTC Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0

Sigmetrix, LLC, a software integration and strategic software partner with PTC since 1990 and the preferred supplier of tolerance analysis software for Pro/ENGINEER customers, announced the release of CETOL 6 Sigma Version 7.1, providing interoperability with PTC's newly introduced Pro/ENGINEER® WildfireT 2.0.

CETOL Version 7.1 has significant customer driven enhancements allowing the CETOL user to develop more comprehensive tolerance analysis models with less effort while providing greater understanding of how variation affects the key characteristics of their design. Other enhancements include Monte Carlo and derivative based solvers, comprehensive support for family tables, improved visualization in Pro/ENGINEER, real time updates to the degree of freedom state, and more user preference controls.

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 offers ASME Y14.41 compliant 3D drawing capability incorporated directly into the core product and interoperability with all major CAD systems including UGS PLM I-DEAS®, CATIA® V5 and UG NX. Additionally, this version delivers major improvements in software usability by extending the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire User Model to sheet metal, simulation and other areas of the solution.

"The integration of CETOL 7.1 with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 will provide the capability for more engineers to solve more complex tolerance problems without the burden of specialists or over simplifications. Companies realize the need to better define design requirements while understanding the effects of 3D variation behavior. Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 interoperability and the introduction of the ASME Y14.41 compliant 3D drawing capability will have a significant impact on driving the automation of CETOL 6 Sigma tolerance analysis models directly from the Pro/ENGINEER model. Sigmetrix has enjoyed a long relationship with PTC, providing integration tools, global marketing programs and a broad customer base. PTC's well established partner program has allowed us to continue to develop CETOL to meet the on going needs of Pro/ENGINEER users," said Timothy V. Bogard, President and CEO, Sigmetrix, LLC.

Sigmetrix, LLC is a software development company focused on providing easy-to-use assembly tolerance analysis and optimization software for mechanical engineers. Sigmetrix has been shipping CETOL 6 Sigma software to PTC customers since 1992. In 1999, PTC selected CETOL 6 Sigma for worldwide distribution as its preferred tolerance analysis solution. Many leading companies in the manufacturing industry have used Sigmetrix software to realize significant returns on investment in the deployment of Six Sigma methodologies.
