CAD software for comprehensive product development

Cadenas07192Cadenas has developed a visual search engine of the next dimension: With Engineers, buyers and architects can find millions of 3D CAD + BIM models in hundreds of worldwide available catalogs of manufacturers in the fields of architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronics and then download them for their own design.

The search results are digital product data of components that manufacturers provide for engineering, design, and planning. Many catalogs offer various native and neutral CAD formats via 150, such as Autodesk Revit, Nemetschek Allplan, Archicad, Autodesk Inventor, NX, Solid Edge, PTC Creo Parametric, Autocad, Catia or Solidworks.

Cadenas07191In order to reduce the search effort significantly and to increase the efficiency in engineering and building planning, the search engine for digital component data was developed. The following search functions are available in

  • Parametric Text Search
    High-performance full-text search that offers suggestions for alternatives and corrections and allows logical operators (eg: D <12)
  • 3D Shape Search
    Find geometrically similar parts based on a reference part
  • 2D Sketch Search
    By sketching a simple 2D drawing get matching results
  • 2D Photo Search
    By uploading a component photos find similar components
  • Color Search
    Filter components within the parts library by color
  • Feature / Topology Search (coming soon)
    Find components that have the same properties and dimensions
  • Search by Category like DIN / ISO / eClass (coming soon)
    Filter components according to specific categories
  • Class 2.0 Search / Reverse Search (coming soon)
    Finds the counterpart to the existing component in the component libraries
