PLM Components

Enhance your 3D geometric modeling, simulation, manufacturing, collaboration and visualization applications with our portfolio of software components, openly licensed to 3D software application developers. 

PLM Components

Reduce the cost and risk of delivering 3D software innovation to your customers and increase the value of your applications in design, simulation, manufacturing, collaboration and visualization by joining hundreds of software vendors who choose PLM Components.

Our leading solutions for geometric modeling, digital manufacturing, simulation, visualization and data exchange have a proven history of continuous innovation, industry-tested quality and consistent high performance.

Licensing our 3D software developer toolkits to build a new software application—rather than reinventing the wheel with a proprietary solution—is often an easy decision. For more established software applications, switching to an alternative solution for innovative design, manufacturing or simulation capabilities may require more careful consideration.

With a broad set of benefits that we've consistently demonstrated over decades, licensing our solutions is an attractive option for both new and established 3D software development companies.
