Belmont Technology Selects Software Components from Siemens

PLANO, Texas, September 5, 2013 – Belmont Technology Incorporated ("Belmont"), a venture backed software start-up founded by CAD industry veterans, has licensed Siemens’ Parasolid® software and D-Cubed™ software components to be the foundation of a new generation of cloud-based applications for the computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) market. The Belmont team, which includes Founder and Chairman, Jon Hirschtick, and CEO John McEleney, will use Parasolid and D-Cubed components to provide the solid modeling and geometric constraint solving capabilities that are fundamental to modern CAD/CAM/CAE applications. Parasolid and D-Cubed components are developed by Siemens’ PLM software business unit.

“Through an extensive evaluation against comparable products, the Parasolid and D-Cubed components proved themselves to be the leading technologies for us to deliver the best possible products to our future customers, and we are convinced that Siemens will ensure that is the case for many years to come,” said Hirschtick. “The Belmont team is happy to once again be partnering with Siemens, who have proven themselves to be a great partner to us over the years in supplying such technologies.”

Belmont will use the Parasolid Designer software, along with the D-Cubed 2D DCM (Dimensional Constraint Manager) and the D-Cubed 3D DCM. The company cited the products’ superiority across a broad range of criteria, including functionality, performance, quality, compatibility with cloud computing platforms, and compatibility with multi-processor architectures. Belmont also noted that its confidence in Siemens as a trusted, open supplier of PLM software component technology was a critical factor in their decision.

“It is particularly gratifying when people with the deep industry knowledge and experience of Belmont’s founders select our technology as the foundation for their own products,” said Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO, Siemens PLM Software. “This important new relationship is a clear indication of Siemens’ technical leadership and our reputation as the most trusted supplier of PLM software component technology on the market. Our philosophy of licensing our PLM Components toolkits to other software vendors enables more end-users and suppliers to benefit from proven technology and strengthens our position as the one PLM software company with a culture of openness.”
