Missler Software

Computer Aided Design

Blazing 2D/3D speed graphics

Benchmark rendering quality


Fast and secure integration path


Missler Software, a leading global supplier of CAD, CAM and ERP solutions, is ranked as the number 2 CAD/CAM supplier in France and in the Top 10 worldwide. The company provides an integrated software solution for product design, manufacturing and data management. Missler Software wanted to provide its customers with top performance 2D/3D speed, rendering quality and scalability for its main product line called TopSolid with a fast and secure integration path. Missler Software already had real-time 2D/3D as well as ray tracing solutions so the ability to transition smoothly was critical.

REDsdk enabled the solution

REDsdk provided a flexible incremental approach for integration into the TopSolid application allowing a smooth transition to an optimum balance of performance and visual quality by using REDsdk data organization algorithms and hybrid rendering technology to deliver the best user experience. Indeed, REDsdk can draw inside the same screen, window, viewport as the host application, before giving it back to the application in the same state it received it. The host application can then draw 2D & 3D data or call REDsdk at any time.

Missler Software speaks out

“When REDWAY3D came up with the RED engine middleware, the Missler Software expectations were very high in terms of performance, quality and scalability, due to our past experience”, said Dominique Laffret, Missler Software, Vice President of Strategic Relationships. “When such an important improvement occurs in your application, you worry about the integration time and the possible impact on the way customers use TopSolid, I was surprised to see the first in-viewport integration samples of REDsdk in TopSolid after a few days of work of our engineers. I received a beta version of TopSolid with RED running inside, as well as the confirmation it was a riskless technical path before the free evaluation period of REDsdk ended (4 weeks)! Nothing changed in our GUI or manipulators, the RED integration was transparent “.

“By using REDsdk, we could get the best of the current 2D/3D hardware performance while keeping all our TopSolid 2D & 3D graphics assets” said Jean-Luc Rolland, Missler Software CTO. “It is a full bi-directional compatibility, TopSolid can call REDsdk and REDsdk can call TopSolid”.

“I always heard the REDWAY3D engineers were present and responsive” mentioned Christian Arber, Missler Software CEO . “For any professional company, especially in the industrial business, it is essential to rely on people who understand the challenges and adapt themselves to your needs and requirements.”.
