C3D Toolkit Delivers 3D Solid Modeling to DWG-based nanoCAD Mechanica

Moscow, Russia: April 30, 2019 – C3D Labs is pleased to announce that Nanosoft’s newly released nanoCAD Mechanica 9.0 software features its C3D Toolkit components. Three-dimensional solid modeling is brand new in Mechanica 9.0, and its capabilities are based on the C3D Modeler geometric kernel and the C3D Converter data exchange module.

nanoCAD Mechanica powered by C3D

Nanosoft is a rapidly growing international CAD developer, with an extensive line of design software all running on its DWG-based nanoCAD program. Mechanica is its design application for mechanical engineers.

The components from C3D Labs incorporated into nanoCAD Mechanica provide users with feature-based 3D modeling, as well as extended export/import functions for the most common interchange formats -- STL, IGES, STEP, and so on.

Previously known exclusively as a 2D mechanical drafting and design application, nanoCAD Mechanica 9.0 now offers standard modeling tools for 3D design, including extrusion, rotation, chamfering, filleting, and pulling objects along paths and out of sections.

The cornerstone of the 3D design environment is the history window, with its construction tree representing the step-by-step history of the models’ creation process. The tree is a sequence of features (or actions) that created the models. In nanoCAD, 3D History is a nanoCAD Inspector window with a specific set of tools. In addition to the history approach to the solid modeling, nanoCAD Mechanica 9.0 also provides standard Boolean operations on 3D solid objects, such as union, intersection, and subtraction.

By adding the C3D Converter module, nanoCAD Mechanica 9.0 offers the flexible data conversion functions:

  • Reading and writing B-rep models in STEP (with PMI), IGES, ACIS SAT, and Parasolid X_T and X_B formats
  • Importing and exporting models in JT format
  • Reading and writing polygonal models in STL and VRML formats

“We had been closely watching the development of the C3D kernel and then made the decision to build it into our CAD application for mechanical engineering,” said Dmitry Popov, deputy director of Nanosoft. “The robust components from C3D Labs are progressing quickly and have all the solid modeling features necessary for us to deploy them right now.”

“We are proud to partner with Nanosoft in implementing their strategy of creating cost-effective CAD solutions,” said Oleg Zykov, CEO of C3D Labs. “Our C3D Toolkit components integrate smoothly into the DWG environment, enabling nanoCAD Mechanica to enter the 3D world and so make solids modeling affordable to users.”

About C3D Labs

C3D Labs specializes in the technology-intensive market of software components. The company was founded in 2012 by ASCON Group, a well-known CAD and PLM developer in Russia. Development of the C3D kernel was begun in 1995.

C3D Labs today provides the C3D Toolkit to engineering software for constructing and editing precise 3D models. As a tool for software developers, C3D Toolkit is the only package to incorporate all four modules critical to CAD: 2D/3D modeling, 2D/3D constraint solving, 3D visualization, and file conversion.
