Recently Sanjay Gangal interviewed Oleg Zykov, CEO of C3D Labs at MCADCafe headquarters.
SG: Tell us about C3D Labs, when did the company get started?
OZ: C3D is a part of Ascon Group – a large CAD and PDM developer based in Russia. We're celebrating 30 years in the market as a software component provider. Initially, it was a company that developed 2D CAD software, but in 1995 our founders made a decision to develop 3D software, as well. The 3D software is based on our own kernel so, our 3D product is more than 20 years old and continuing to mature. Six years ago, a separate company, C3D Labs, was established to develop and to promote the kernel outside of Ascon Group to independent software vendors that encompass many vertical industries.
