25 Jan, 2009

New releases include the SpaModeler module and PDF and SVG export capabilities.

The Open Design Alliance (ODA) announced the release of v2.7 of the ODA software development platform, DWGdirect and DGNdirect.

DWGdirect v2.7 includes a beta version of a new SpaModeler module, which integrates the Spatial ACIS 3D modeling engine to provide 3D solids creation, editing, and visualization.

DGNdirect v2.7 provides support for V8 XM data, RSC fonts, and linetypes. It also features an updated DWGdirect export interface to provide export capability to PDF and SVG file formats directly from DGNdirect.

"The new features and improvements built in to both DWGdirect and DGNdirect further advance the attractiveness of our developer platform to software developers and designers. We are particularly pleased with the addition of the new SpaModeler component to our platform. Easy integration of quality third-party components adds great value to our software, and we are continuing to expand our offerings in this area," said Neil Peterson, chief technical officer at ODA.
