Anark Accepted as Adobe Solution Provider

Designed for companies that provide solution-based sales and more based on Adobe tech

Anark Corporation has announced that it has been accepted as an Adobe Systems Incorporated Solution Partner. Adobe's Solution Partner Program is designed for companies that provide solution-based sales, system integration, services, or extended products based on Adobe technology.

Anark now provides product development and design collaboration solutions that harness the powerful capabilities of Adobe® LiveCycle® and Adobe Acrobat® software. Anark's automated 3D CAD transformation products and technologies give manufacturing companies the ability to streamline the process of publishing rich, full-featured PDF files from complex 3D CAD data with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and LiveCycle Enterprise Suite (ES). With Anark Core, companies can easily prepare their 3D data for sharing and enable automated production of lightweight 3D PDF documents for design review, product collaboration, supplier data exchange and markup.

"Anark Core is a strong solution for simplifying and optimizing heavy CAD geometry that needs to be distributed and shared throughout the extended enterprise," said Greg Baker, senior manager, Manufacturing Strategic Alliances for Adobe. "Anark Core will help manufacturing customers further reduce the costs and time associated with preparing CAD files for publishing to the widely accepted Portable Document Format."

The Anark Core Platform is an innovative software solution that quickly and easily transforms complex 3D CAD data for use in applications throughout manufacturing, design, engineering, and support organizations. Unique, recipe-based CAD transformation technology enables a single CAD model to be repurposed in multiple forms specific to each use case requirement. These stored recipes can then be automatically replayed each time the CAD model undergoes a design change, saving countless hours and errors common with other CAD model repurposing tools.

When deployed with Acrobat 9 Pro Extended or LiveCycle ES, Anark Core automates the production of use-case specific CAD models, thereby increasing the value, relevance, and portability of CAD assets that need to be shared with marketing, suppliers, and partners.

"Anark Core's recipe-based automation and CAD simplification and transformation capabilities are an ideal complement to Acrobat and LiveCycle for manufacturers. Together, Anark and Adobe provide a rapidly deployable, integrated solution for organizations that want to extend the value of CAD data throughout the enterprise," said Stephen Collins, CEO, Anark Corporation. "Anark and Adobe are collaborating on additional opportunities and we look forward to working with the Adobe field sales organization."
