Altium to Implement C3D Modeler in PCB Software

New application of C3D Labs’ geometric kernel in designing 3D printed circuit boards

Moscow, Russia and San Diego, CA, USA: 20 December 2017 — Altium, one of the world's leading developers of software for computer-aided design of electronic components, has licensed modules from the C3D Toolkit to expand the 3D modeling functions of its flagship product, Altium Designer. Industry leaders, small and medium enterprises, as well as research laboratories and universities, use Altium software to design state-of-the-art electronic devices. More than 80,000 professionals around the world use Altium solutions.

Software Developers Increasingly Choosing C3D Toolkit

C3D Toolkit allows the development of software and applications of great complexity. The toolkit consists of four PLM components that meet fully the needs of engineering software developers. Specifically, C3D Modeler is the component for geometric modeling and calculations, C3D Solver for controlling 2D and 3D models through dimensions and constraints, C3D Vision for rendering visual scenes, and C3D Converter for reading and writing data in the most popular CAD exchange formats. The components can be used together or individually, depending on project parameters.

Unified Platform

“Bringing true 3D design to PCB is key to breaking through the walls between electronic and mechanical engineering disciplines,” said Sergey Kostinsky, VP of Engineering at Altium. “We were first to bring 3D to PCB design and our partnership with C3D Labs ensures that Altium continues to lead the way in modern electronic design.”

 “Developers from Altium Designer trialed our C3D Modeler and confirmed that it is the best component for embedding a 3D modeling subsystem into their product, thus helping them expand its functions,” said Arkadiy Kamnev, Marketing Manager at C3D Labs. “Altium was especially interested in our advanced capabilities, such as surface modeling, curve projection, collision detection, and working with large assemblies. That such a world-famous company licensed C3D Toolkit is not only an honor, but also a great responsibility for us.”

A month ago, C3D Labs held a workshop dedicated for Altium developers at the C3D development center in Kolomna, where mathematicians from C3D Labs hosted experts from Altium to answer all their questions. The one-on-one workshop significantly strengthened the cooperation between the two tech leaders.

During the evaluation period, Altium experts tested the C3D Modeler and the C3D Solver, and subsequently chose both products to embed in their PDB design software. Click here to learn more about C3D Labs solutions.

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.
