Moscow and Novosibirsk, Russia: March, 1, 2017 – C3D Labs, a subsidiary of the ASCON group of companies and the commercial developer of the C3D Toolkit, and LEDAS Ltd., a leading provider of software development services for the CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM/PLM market, today announced the successful integration of their products. The LEDAS Cloud Platform (LCP) was bridged with C3D to achieve better performance and quality when working with real-life user models. Before this, LCP had already been coupled with an open-source B-rep geometric kernel and 3D modeling library, so that the new integration was achieved smoothly and in a short timeframe. This proved that LCP can be easily bridged with any general-purpose geometric modeling kernel.
LEDAS Cloud Platform provides most popular and most requested cloud capabilities -- data storage and management, 3D visualization, communication and collaboration -- by bringing them to users through Web browsers. Several applications have been developed on the LCP platform to deliver even more complex and specific user functions, such as editing and analyzing 3D models on the Web. These applications were developed much more quickly than usual thanks to the added value of LCP available to licensees. LEDAS, as a long-time provider of software development services, is able to develop any features requested by customers.
The main functions that LCP needs from a 3D kernel is to read and tessellate CAD data into triangular meshes, which are used on the browser side for visualization, navigation, mark-up, and other user interactions. By employing additional data structures, LCP maintains a map between triangular meshes and CAD data, and provides a bi-directional work flow between client and server. Operations done by users on the client-side trigger corresponding operations on server side, which modify the 3D model accordingly. Once all operations are done, the CAD and mesh models are saved in users’ spaces on cloud data storage sites for sharing and later reuse.
About C3D Labs
C3D Labs specializes in the technology-intensive market of PLM components. The company develops and markets C3D Toolkit, that embodies the achievements of the Russian school of mathematics, coupled with more than 20 years of experience in creating advanced 3D technologies. Computer-aided design systems are the most widely known software in which C3D Toolkit is typically used. As the 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.
