Dietech India Licenses C3D Toolkit for Software Development

Moscow, Russia and Tamilnadu, India: 20 October 2017 – C3D Labs announced today that Dietech India has licensed its C3D Toolkit for customized mold design software development. Dietech is a leading die tool firm in South India specializing in the manufacture of low-, gravity-, and high-pressure die casting molds.

Dietech India recently set itself the goal of achieving mistake-free mold designs and reducing its lead time from days to hours. To achieve this result, the company made the decision to develop its own software to configure mold bases for various HPDC (high-pressure die casting) tonnage machines. A pilot project was developed in-house and being used for regular production. Later the company also decided to make a commercial venture of it. Dietech India entrusted this task to its project office in Chennai, which devised the software package concept. The office chose and employed the 3D kernel from C3D Labs as the engine driving the new software.

"As we specialize in developing innovative software here at Dietech India, we recently licensed the C3D Toolkit,” said Srinivasan Natarajan, Chief Product Consultant at Dietech India. “We found that the team of mathematicians and programmers from Russia to be highly professional. This became quite clear in the testing phase, and so gave us the assurance that we will receive the technical support we need to solve any issue related to the use of the software from C3D Labs.”

When it came to choosing a 3D technology, a huge advantage to Dietech India was the ample evaluation period provided by C3D Labs, as well as the availability of the C3D Vision visualization module. Developers at Dietech India rely on .NET and so actively use the wrapper for C# programming.

“From the evaluation phase onwards, our Indian colleagues made a great contribution to the development of the .NET shell,” said Dr. Anna Ladilova, mathematician and programmer at C3D Labs. “The improvement process is ongoing, even though the decision to license it was already made. This is especially important to our other C3D Toolkit customers, when we consider that all improvements to the wrapper are immediately available to them.”

The commercial version of Dietech India’s software is not yet released on the market. It is, nevertheless, already being used at the company's own production facilities, which cover 35,000 square meters.

About Dietech India

Active since 1995, Dietech India has fulfilled over 1,000 orders for the design and manufacture of molds for clients as well-known as Bosch, Honda Motor, OSWAL Electrical, Wipro, and NPF Italy. The company employs 50 engineers and 125 machine operators and tool makers at its massive plant in SIPCOT Industrial Park, Tamilnadu, India. Dietech India specializes in designing and manufacturing high-pressure, gravity, low-pressure die castings.

About C3D Labs

C3D Labs specializes in the technology-intensive market of PLM components. The company develops and markets C3D Toolkit, which is used for constructing and editing 3D models. Computer-aided design systems are the most widely known software in which C3D Toolkit is typically used. As a software developer’s tool, it is today the only modeling kit that incorporates all four modules critical to CAD: 2D/3D modeling, 2D/3D constraint solving, 3D visualization, and file conversion. In 2013, C3D Labs became a resident of Skolkovo, Russia’s state development office park.
