Established in 2000, Runiter Company is dedicated to the development of high-quality yet affordable software products for the general public. Currently, the focus of the company is the development of educational software products that provide visual, tutorial and computational aids for college and university level students. We do not however limit ourselves to educational products and will soon expand to cover other fields of public-interest as well.
Runiter company was established in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and remained there from 2000 to 2009. In 2010, the company relocated to its current location at Cambridge, MA, USA.
The idea of Graphing Calculator 3D came to Dr. Saeid Nourian in 2007 when he was still a grad student in University of Ottawa. As a student he noticed first-hand how effective software tools are in understanding science and mathematics. He specially felt the need to visualize mathematical equations and data in 3D. However the existing software tools were slow, difficult to use and expensive. They also lacked the ability to generate high-resolution graphs needed for professional publications. Since his specialty was in computer graphics he decided to build a software that utilizes the power of GPU to compute and render 3d graphs incredibly fast. He chose Java and Java3D as the platform for his new product because Java programs can run seamlessly on popular operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux.
The result is a powerful graphing tool downloaded by half a million students and teachers across the world. 2016 saw a series of frequent updates that fixed many bugs and added several major enhancements thanks to feedback received by several dedicated professors who use GC3 to create teaching materials for their classrooms.
