Site to provide 24/7 dynamic forum for worldwide user community

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., October 24, 2006- Geomagic® (, a worldwide software and services company, announces the launch of the Geomagic Knowledge Base. The Geomagic Knowledge Base, in beta, is a first-of-its-kind customer resource for knowledge sharing on Geomagic software and its application in digital shape sampling and processing (DSSP).

The new Geomagic Knowledge Base, an extension of the company’s website support section, is designed as a 24/7 interactive forum that will enable up-to-the-minute, information exchange on best-practice use of Geomagic software. The beta release features regular postings of customer technical issues by Geomagic support staff, which will be augmented by content from partners and customers later this year.

"Our goal with the Geomagic Knowledge Base is to build a self-sustaining forum that builds community by offering the latest tools and information our customers can use to best leverage Geomagic software solutions and services," says Jim Johnson, Geomagic vice president of sales. "The Knowledge Base is one more way we can ensure the success of our users in their work with Geomagic technology and DSSP."
