LEDAS announced today that CAD Software Solutions has licensed LGC (LEDAS Geometry Comparison) technology for developing Inventor Plug-in. LEDAS is a developer of engineering software and provides software development services to the CAD/CAM/CAE/PDM/PLM market. CAD Software Solutions develops CAD tools for working efficiently with large models and assemblies.
Differences being found in two similar-looking models in new LGC-based Inventor application
About Inventor Plug-InCAD Software Solutions developed its new LGC-based 3D comparison software for making fast and user friendly comparison inside of Inventor from Autodesk. The company plans to deliver Inventor Plug-in to the market this year. Inventor Plug-in is the first software based on LGC being delivered to end-users by CAD Software Solutions. The company plans to consider other CAD platforms for further LGC-related development.
“Developing Inventor-based software is our core competency, and so we have major customers from the mechanical design industry using our other software,” said Paul Schuepbach, CEO of CAD Software Solutions. “We tested LGC for several months, focusing especially on large models and assemblies provided by customers. The results were very positive, confirming to us that LGC is the best choice for our brand-new application.”
“While several CAD companies already use LGC on a commercial basis, this is the first time we have made a public announcement of an LGC license agreement,” said Alexey Ershov, CEO of LEDAS. “This is very important for us, because we are glad to be cooperating with CAD Software Solutions to extend the technology in additional directions, such as 3D parts search.”
