COMSOL Moves from Silver to Gold Partner


BURLINGTON, MA (October 9, 2009) - COMSOL, Inc., the maker of COMSOL Multiphysics - the market leading software for multiphysics modeling and simulation - announced today that it has moved from a Silver Partner to a Gold Partner within PTC’s PartnerAdvantage™ Program. The upgrade to the Gold tier, which provides access to a comprehensive suite of capabilities, followed an extensive review of the COMSOL Multiphysics® integration with PTC Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire 4.0.

The move from the Silver to the Gold tier followed the release of the LiveLink™ for Pro/ENGINEER®, a seamless connection between the two environments. By establishing an associative connection between the two applications, a change of a feature in the CAD model automatically updates the geometry in COMSOL Multiphysics, while retaining physics settings. This enables the user to optimize their designs using automatic parametric sweeps. Andy Barlow, PTC’s Senior Director of Business Development, stated, “We are pleased that COMSOL has chosen to extend its partnership with PTC. We are looking forward to working closely together to enhance the value COMSOL Multiphysics brings to Pro/ENGINEER users.”
