Geomagic Joins With Creaform To Offer Educational Discounts

September 12, 2006

Geomagic®, a worldwide software and services firm, and Creaform, a 3D digital technologies company, recently announced an aggressive educational discount program. The new program will allow design and engineering students to access the leading-edge technology currently used by engineering professionals in the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, medical and consumer products industries at a discounted educational institution pricing structure.

“Enabling students to use the latest technology is of great benefit to all,” says Andrew Stein, vice president of product management and marketing of Geomagic, Inc. “We see this as an investment in the future, one that will fuel product and engineering innovation for years to come and prepare students for a digital world of non-contact measurement for design, inspection, and a variety of other applications.”

“We are proud to be part of this important program and support these institutions,” adds Charles Mony, president of Creaform. “The ability for instructors to provide easy to use and accurate hands-on tools to students is invaluable. Geomagic and Creaform believe that the future of design engineering and 3D inspection technology resides with students in universities and trade institutions.”

The educational discount program, available worldwide, will make available a minimum of 150 hardware and software kits at an 80 percent discount to qualified education institutions.
