Actify Product Update: SpinFire 11.1 Ultimate Released

Actify announced the release of SpinFire Ultimate 11.1. SpinFire Ultimate supports files created in any major CAD file format, such as the latest versions of Catia V5 and Unigraphics NX just to name a few, allowing users in the manufacturing industries and their supply chains to use a single software solution enabling them to view, measure, mark-up and share all major 2D and 3D data formats without needing to purchase and maintain seats of native CAD systems. This streamlines the communication process and allows for paperless distribution of complex product data, ultimately increasing productivity and cutting costs.
