ASCON Partner Rubius Tapped for C3D Geometric Kernel Development


ASCON today announced that long-time development partner Rubius’ new role as a developer of CAD systems and applications based on ASCON’s C3D kernel. The partnership between ASCON and Rubius stems from years of collaboration between the two software developers.

Rubius specialists proved their experience in CAM development through their development of the parametric solid modeling module embedded in ESPRIT CAM. They are applying their knowledge by developing a similar module for a Russian CAM system to be released shortly.

ASCON and Rubius have long worked together. Their partnership began when Rubius developed PDM modules for ASCON; later, they integrated ESPRIT with ASCON products, and then adapted KOMPAS-3D for specialized requests by users. In addition, the company successfully developed software such as Rubius Electric Suite for KOMPAS-3D and Rubius Project Manager.

“We gained a rich experience in working with C3D and its developers,” reports Sergey Koshevoy, software development manager at Rubius. “The C3D kernel is a powerful and reliable technological foundation upon which we can solve complex engineering tasks using 3D design. We are ready to extend our experience to new projects, and by providing a service in integrating C3D with customers’ software.”

“Not only is it important to us that C3D be developed as a product, but we also want to establish an ecosystem around our geometric kernel,” said Oleg Zykov, C3D product director of ASCON. “Rubius is famous for its highly qualified programming team, and so we are glad to recommend that our customers take advantage of our new partner’s services.”
