Complementary Toolkit Providers
Parasolid customers frequently use toolkits from other technology vendors in areas such as CAE Meshing or Graphics Rendering. The Parasolid team has a history of working with vendors of leading toolkits in adjacent disciplines to make it easier for our mutual customers to get products to market more easily. The Complementary Toolkit Provider Initiative (CTPI) enables toolkit vendors to formalize this relationship. CTPI members receive a of Parasolid license with the agreement that they build a standard integration (bridge) to Parasolid that they may distribute free-of-charge to valid licensees of both toolkits.
