ITEDO solutions will become an important part of PTC's Arbortext[R] product family, providing extensive 2D technical illustration capabilities today and further enhancing PTC's 3D interactive content for technical publications in the future.
The integration of ITEDO and PTC solutions will enable companies to create highly configured and current versions of documentation earlier in the product or service development process, while eliminating the duplication of work inherent in the process today.
By complementing and extending the PTC Product Development System with ITEDO products, PTC will be able to provide customers with the ability to use Pro/ENGINEER[R] information as the basis for technical illustrations, with automatic updates to the illustrations as changes are made to the upstream CAD models.
PTC's launch into technical publications, through its acquisition first of Arbortext and now of ITEDO, paves the way to a new level of automation by extending the concept of associativity from product development into dynamic publishing of both text and illustrations.
George Ashley, director, engineering technology, Ingersoll Rand added, "As a long-time customer of both PTC and ITEDO solutions, we are excited about the steps PTC has taken to deliver on its vision for integrated product development and technical publications solutions.
Customers will continue to be able to leverage all ITEDO products, including IsoDraw, IsoView and IsoCompose, as stand-alone solutions or as an integral part of PTC's Product Development System.
ITEDO Software is specialized in the development and sales of software solutions for technical illustration.
