LEDAS Ltd. is an independent software development company, founded in 1999 in Novosibirsk, Russia on the base of academic lab of artificial intelligence (AI). Using its core competencies in mathematics, computer science, computer-aided design, and a solid expertise in software development, LEDAS provides R&D software outsourcing services in the areas of CAD, CAM, BIM/AEC, and general 3D modeling for desktop and cloud applications.

Over the years, LEDAS worked on technically advanced geometric engines, such as LEDAS Geometric Solver and a 3D geometric kernel. Today, LEDAS offers a broad range of expertise in computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM).

The largest and most significant project involved LEDAS is cooperating with Dassault Systèmes. The work spanned 12 years, developing components for Dassault’s CATIA CAD program and CGM kernel. The project deployed expert programmers and mathematicians at LEDAS in developing a state-of-the-art geometric constraint solver for the world’s largest CAD software company (more in Success Stories).

We at LEDAS see our mission as automating key industrial processes — 3D design, simulation, and planning. These are the areas in which users require sets of intelligent functions to accelerate product development and the planning of related processes and resources. We help our customers develop engineering applications, and then promote and deploy them.

Our R&D team consists of 50+ highly qualified mathematicians, mechanical engineers, and software programmers. Nearly a dozen have a Ph.D. degree; the others attained MSc and BSc degrees in mathematics, computer science, and mechanical engineering.

Recently, LEDAS celebrated its 20th anniversary by acquiring a new 1000 square meter headquarters at Academpark’s Center of Research and Development, a top Russian IT hub, and has now moved into the new offices. Academpark is located in Akademgorodok, a world-famous education and scientific research center in Novosibirsk, Western Siberia, the third largest Russian city after Moscow and St. Petersburg. Akademgorodok is home to 50+ IT companies and Novosibirsk University, one of the top Russian universities in mathematics and the natural sciences, which is a unique source of a highly qualified workforce for LEDAS.
