FDES was started in 2007 by our current Managing Director Mr. Kora Nagarjuna Reddy (Nag).
He has started the company when he was 25 years old, with an intention to automate the traditional CAD modelling and drawing creation process. He finished his Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Institution of Engineers, Kolkata and Master’s Degree in Tool Design from Central Institute of Tool Design(CITD) in 2004.
Though he is a mechanical engineer, he is so passionate about programming languages. While he was perusing the Master’s Degree, his passion for programming made him think of building automation tools for CAD software which automates the routine and repetitive tasks.
He started writing scripts for AutoCAD 2004 using AutoLISP and DCL and results were amazing. Based on the results, he foresees the future of these tools in the CAD industry. Then he started discussing the concept with friends who are in the CAD industry. In mid of 2005, through reference, he got an opportunity to work for a client to automate the railway signalling circuit design process in AutoCAD. He has used VisualLisp and DCL to automate the AutoCAD and he was successful. Before he finished this project, he has got another job to automate the design process for another client. He felt this filed as promising to grow and deliver solutions by combining the knowledge he gained in the academics and his passion for programming.
In June 2007, Nag started FDES with 3 more friends and started his journey as an entrepreneur. Now FDES has clients in more than 12 countries and delivered hundreds of plugins and design automation software.
