CADENAS Continues Pioneering Role

First 3D CAD model app for Windows 10 is now available

Published: Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 12:47

(CADENAS: Augsburg, Germany) -- Since 2012, the 3D CAD models engineering app from CADENAS has served engineers and purchasers as a download service and calculation tool for 3D data. Due to the growing popularity and the increasing download figures in Google Play and the iTunes Store, the developer has now decided to also offer the app for Windows 10 as a mobile and desktop version.

“At the beginning of the year we looked at the vast amount of positive customer feedback that was published in the Google Play Store. Of course, we do not wish to withhold this service from Windows 10 users and therefore gave them access to the 3D CAD model app,” says Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS.

Moreover, Heimbach set an ambitious target for this year: “Currently we have 611,000 downloads of our app from Google Play and the iTunes Store. This year we are striving to break the one-million-download barrier. We would like to further strengthen our proven dominant position in the field of 3D CAD model app downloads.”

Far more than CAD models

The app helps engineers and purchasers from the mechanical and plant engineering space, as well as those in the automotive sector, to find the right 3D CAD model in the desired format in a targeted way. The PARTcommunity app is based on CADENAS’ eCATALOGsolutions technology. Furthermore, the CAD models are manufacturer-certified and available in 85 formats for the most current CAD systems like Solid Edge, NX, Parametric, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD, CATIA, SolidWorks, and Creo, among others.

These are the extensive features of the PARTcommunity app: Product configuring extended product information such as pictures and augmented reality, case studies of the respective components in practice, requests for non-binding offers, direct contact to the manufacturers, extensive support, and company news.
