ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA – ASCON Group, a Russian engineering software developer and systems integrator in the field of design and manufacturing automation, introduced the first AEC design system built on the C3D geometric modeling kernel from C3D Labs.
Creating a new 3D design system like ASCON Group's Renga Architecture requires extensive use of sophisticated geometric definitions and complex mathematical functions. The developers at C3D Labs adapted their geometric kernel to meet the needs of Renga's programmers and the demands of its many beta testers. Programmers reworked many functions and methods crucial for the smooth operation of CAD-based AEC systems.
The new Renga Architecture software combines object-oriented programming with customizable modeling. The CAD system allows users to rapidly create 3D representations of buildings and construction sites using well-known commands like Wall, Column, Beam, and Window. The C3D kernel's approach to design fluidity helps greatly in transforming ordinary 3D models of buildings into amazing architectural masterpieces.
For the last two years, C3D Labs worked at implementing the many changes and new kernel functions required for architectural software like Renga Architecture. For instance, it is now possible to create swept surfaces with guides through the new MbSpine entity. In the area of triangulation, joint management was added. C3D's programmers expanded the operation that sets thicknesses, added new constructors, reworked multi-threading, improved link counting, enhanced 2D line dimension calculations, and more.
