Archway Systems and Evoqe today announced a partnership between the two companies, as Archway offers solidThinking Forma 3D modeling software coupled with each license of VersaCAD for either Mac or Windows. VersaCAD is a production-level CAD application intended for use by engineers, draftspersons, and other technical professionals working in the architectural, civil engineering, construction, and mechanical industries. SolidThinking Forma is an easy-to-use 3D surface modeler with NURBS support that features a customizable interface layout. VersaCAD for Intel Macs began shipping in January, and both products can import models from the other. The VersaCAD/solidThinking bundle is priced at $800 for a new seat, and existing users of VersaCAD can upgrade to the Premium Service for the latest version of both products for $600/year. VersaCAD for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later (solidThinking Forma system requirements were unavailable).
