Our origins

The history of the Company goes back to 1980 when the famous EUCLID CAD system was announced by Matra Datavision. By mid 90' EUCLID 3 was released and employed in the widest variety of engineering domains, from general mechanical and automotive engineering to the complex robotics and aerospace industries.

1993 is the year when a development platform called CAS.CADE (Computer Aided Software for Computer Aided Design and Engineering) was released by Matra Datavision specialists as a future generation of CAD technology. In 1999 Matra Datavision published CAS.CADE in open source on the Internet - since then called Open CASCADE Technology.
