The acquisition is reported to strengthen Tech Soft 3D’s position as a provider of CAD data translation, visualization, and collaboration tools for application developers and end-users.

BEND, Ore.—Tech Soft 3D, a provider of engineering software development toolkits, recently acquired the Actify core business from Actify, Inc., a developer of advanced CAD viewing and collaboration technology. The acquisition includes Actify SpinFire, CAD Publisher, and Centro, according to a release from Tech Soft 3D.

The move is said to underscore Tech Soft 3D’s commitment to accelerate growth, as it establishes an End-User Solutions division and broadens its product portfolio through further acquisitions, the company said in the release.
