Adobe enters CAD arena with TTF

Adobe today acquired Trade and Technologies France (TTF), a little known CAD software development firm.

TTF develops CAD file viewers, CAD software interoperability translators and libraries for converting between different CAD formats (like AutoCAD DWG to Solidworks or CATIA).

Though the TTF acquisation may help Adobe in the further development of Adobe Acrobat 3D, it may be the first clear signal that Adobe could plan for a place in the highly-lucrative CAD business dominated by AutoDesk.
