Spatial Corp.
Industry Computer software
3D modeler
Founded 1986
Headquarters Broomfield, Colorado, USA

Spatial Corporation was founded in 1986, and had one main product: ACIS, the first commercially available 3D modeling kernel. Through subsequent years, Spatial added products to its portfolio that enabled ISVs mostly in the CAD/CAM industries, to build applications. These components included extensions and updates to the ACIS modeler, visualization products, as well as acquisitions in translator technology.

A significant transformation took place at Spatial when it was purchased by Dassault Systèmes in late 2000. Spatial Corp. became a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes.

Flagship products

  • CGM (Convergence Geometric Modeler) - the core geometry and topology modeler for Dassault Systèmes’ V5 and V6
