MOSCOW and SKOLKOVO, Russia, Nov 3, 2017 – C3D Labs announced that the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) has licensed its C3D Toolkit. Skoltech made the decision following a detailed evaluation of software components and their ability to construct 3D models, solve 2D and 3D constraints, convert CAD data between different formats, and generate renderings of 3D scenes. Skoltech will use the toolkit to develop engineering software.
The agreement between C3D Labs and Skoltech was initiated three years ago when IT company’s software was presented at a workshop on new production technologies organized by Skoltech and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Following this, C3D Labs representatives were invited to Skoltech’s Concurrent Engineering Design Laboratory (CEDL) to participate in a seminar on 3D modeling technologies. There, professors and students learned about the C3D Education Program and discussed success stories of using the C3D Toolkit at other universities.
As a result, a group of Skoltech students were tasked with carrying out the Concurrent Engineering Data Exchange project (CEDESK). Dr. Clement Fortin, dean of Faculty and Postdoctoral Affairs at Skoltech and a member of Canadian Academy of Engineering, lead the group. Following his recommendation, the CEDESK team evaluated 3D components from C3D Labs, and the university subsequently licensed the software to allow students to solve research problems. At the same time, an additional agreement was signed delegating Masters student Nikita Letov to a two-month internship at C3D Labs’ development center in Kolomna.
Evgeny Selivanov, head of Industrial Technologies and Industrial Internet of Things at Skolkovo Foundation: “C3D Labs became a resident of the IT cluster in 2013. Since then, this small start-up has become a full-fledged player in the PLM market with key customers in Russia, USA, China, India, Turkey, Korea, and Sweden. C3D Labs started its business four years ago with the promotion of its commercial geometric kernel, but today the Company offers a whole range of software components for developing state-of-the-art 3D modeling packages. The Company actively cooperates with other residents of the Skolkovo Foundation (Eremex, Research and Software Development Center APM).
