Ledas Launches Cloud Platform with Real-time 3D Collaboration

NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA, Oct, 23, 2017 – LEDAS Ltd., a leading provider of software development services for the CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM/PLM market, today announced the availability of their brand-new LEDAS Cloud Platform. As a customizable cloud platform for 3D applications, it is suitable for deploying software for viewing, collaborating, and designing in private and public cloud environments.

Among other features of LEDAS Cloud Platform (LCP) is its ability to provide users with a real-time collaboration environment for a variety of 3D modeling applications. Many users from different parts of the world can be simultaneously accessing and viewing the same 3D data on Web browsers.

Over the last several years, the ability for two or more users to simultaneously access, view, and modify data – text, spreadsheets, games, and even CAD models – in Web browsers has become de facto among modern Web apps.

“Our customers expressed to us their interest in being able to do multi-user editing in their products in many areas of 3D modeling, including BIM, CAD/CAM, 3D meshes, and point clouds,” said Nikolay Snytnikov, head of the LCP project at LEDAS. “This is why we decided to support this exciting feature in LCP.”

LCP currently supports the following formats:

  • STEP for MCAD modeling
  • IFC for BIM applications
  • STL for 3D printing and 3D meshes
  • XYZ for 3D point clouds

LCP can be supplemented by other popular CAD and 3D formats, on request.

LEDAS Cloud Platform Availability

LEDAS Cloud Platform is available now. Customers may license the source code and then compile, modify, and supplement LCP with new functions on the customer side. They can do this work with their own in-house development team, third-party programmers, or else by contracting LEDAS to perform the software development services for them.

LEDAS provides LCP as an extendable client-server system so that customers can enrich it by any functionality they want. The LEDAS team is always available to support software developers.

“We have gained a deep experience in working with the 3D technology stack for the Web,” said Alexey Ershov, CEO of LEDAS. “We have found the cloud well-suited to developing a variety of 3D modeling applications for CAD/PLM, AEC/BIM, and even general 3D modeling.”

Dietech India Selects C3D Toolkit for Mold Design

MOSCOW, Russia and TAMIL NADU, India, Oct 23, 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.

Products made using molds designed by Dietech India


“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.”


Engineering software package designed by Dietech India using C3D Toolkit

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.
