Mechanical design software upstart think3 recently announced that The Pfaltzgraff Co. has selected think3's single-environment 3-D solid and surface modeling software, thinkdesignTMfor aiding in the design and documentation of its popular line of tabletop products, including dinnerware, glassware and flatware. Pfaltzgraff selected thinkdesignTM due to a combination of advanced 3-D functionality, ease of use, compatibility and affordability, according to Mike Kohorst, Pfaltzgraff engineering manager. Within less than five months of implementation, the company has produced its first product using tools designed entirely in thinkdesignTM -- part of the Naturewood Serenity line of dinnerware, slated for worldwide introduction later this year. By the end of the year, Pfaltzgraff has plans to standardize on thinkdesignTM as its 3-D CAD system of choice for all tool design and engineering -- after more than 15 years of running a Catia-based CAD operation.
