MCADCafe Industry Predictions for 2024 – C3DLab

In 2024, the boom of new CAD/CAM/CAE developments continues, both by independent vendors and within corporations. China is obviously becoming the epicenter of CAD development. Just look at the number of Chinese companies among the founding members of ODA or at the Open Geometry Group. Under the conditions of significant time constraints, the industry imposes high requirements to CAD software components and the speed of their development. What technologies will be most in demand in the new year? Let’s note two.

The first trend is the web: a huge number of products for data management, both in engineering and construction, are moving or being written from scratch to work in the browser. To ensure comfortable work with large assemblies, these products must be built on modern web visualization components. This is largely why C3D Web Vision module has become one of the drivers of our business in 2023.

Next trend – the boundary representation is no longer enough for CAD. Too much data has started coming to designers in polygonal representation. Here we are talking about data coming from 3D scanners, and about the results of generative design. CAD must have tools both to convert such models to solids and to work directly with polygonal models using traditional methods. Working ahead of the curve, we started a project to create a polygonal geometry kernel.

In 2024, we at C3D Labs will continue to work closely with our customers around the world, invest in the team, in R&D, in order to provide the market with most complete toolkit for engineering software developers.
