CADMUS Consulting and Development Ltd. was founded in 1990 by and from among the members of the Geometric Modelling Laboratory of the Computer and Automation Institute, Hungarian Academy of Sciences (SZTAKI). CADMUS Ltd. offers state-of-the-art CAD consultancy and geometric modelling solutions for industry.
Based on the long record of producing software systems of high quality and with numerous industrial turn-key systems behind the team, it offers leading edge CAD/CAM capabilities for industry both in Hungary and abroad. Since 1990, the company has obtained numerous development and consulting contracts for CAD component systems, mainly from Western European companies. Successful projects of the first years were, among other things, a free-form surface modelling and machining package (with a partner from Italy), a library for surface-surface intersections and blend generations for an industrial design system (a contract with a partner from Finland), various topics in optical simulation, system design and verification (Germany), and a consistency checker and blending consultancy for a leading solid modeller (USA).
Recently, CADMUS has been involved as an industrial partner in a European reverse engineering research project funded by a Copernicus grant. The company makes efforts to intensify its role in the the Hungarian market as well.
