In an effort to increase its penetration into CAD/CAM markets, and broaden its reputation as a scientific software supplier, Schlumberger CAD/CAM Division has announced that two of its software packages will be available on Apple Macintoshes under A/UX Unix by the first quarter of 1989. Schlumberger says Modeler and Detailer will be the first workstation class CAD/CAM products for Mac IIs; they are currently available as part of Bravo3 for VAXes, VAXstations and Sun workstations and will be relaunched under the MacBravo name. Schlumberger says Mac users have the same features as Bravo3, but with the benefit of an improved user interface. Modeler is task-optimised for three dimensional mechanical design, Detailer a mechanical detail draughting product primarily for engineering and manufacturing drawings. The new MacBravo applications from Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Schlumberger CAD/CAM are also able to exchange information with Bravo3, and Schlumberger is further encouraged by the increasing used of workstations for CAD/CAM applications, and the growing use of Macs for such operations. Distribution will be through a limited numer of CAD/CAM specialist resellers; talks are nearing conclusion with Desktop Engineering Systems for UK distribution. Prices are UKP1,500 for Modeler, UKP2,000 for Detailer and UKP500 for IGES, the initial graphics exchange standard method of exchanging data; all three, bundled as MacBravo Design cost UKP2,750.
