Visual Search Engine 3Dfindit.com Gets Update
Platform for manufacturer-verified 3D CAD, computer-aided engineering and building information modeling data offers accessibility for construction and engineering.
October 14, 2022
CADENAS GmbH has completely renewed the visual search engine for 3D CAD, computer-aided engineering and buildling information modeling models 3Dfindit.com and extended it with numerous functions. As an improved platform, 3Dfindit.com will replace the previous 3D CAD and BIM download portal in approximately a year.
Highlights for Engineers, Designers and Planners
The software manufacturer has incorporated ideas into the development of the new version of 3Dfindit.com. The range of functions has been expanded to provide support for the design and planning process with the intelligent 3D CAD, CAE and BIM models, or so-called digital twins. The user interface has also been revised to offer engineers, designers, planners and architects an upgraded user experience.
Filter Search: Narrow Results With a Few Clicks
Search results can be narrowed down precisely with numerous filters.
3D Grid Search
Starting from a basic shape of the required component, the search results can be narrowed down step by step. The parameters can be adjusted directly in the 3D preview until the part matches the desired model.
2D Sketch Search in Combination With Color Search
If the 2D sketch search returns too many search results, one can narrow down the number of results with a subsequent color search.
3D Shape Search
By uploading an existing geometry, the available manufacturer catalogs can be searched for geometrically similar standard and purchased parts.
3D Preview With Additional Functions
The 3D preview of 3Dfindit.com is a tool with numerous features: Changes to the dimensions can be made directly on the component and sections can be added for better evaluation as well as additionally required values can be determined with the measurement function.
Coming Soon—Direct CAD Integrations
3Dfindit.com is integrated directly into the user interface of numerous CAD systems such as PTC Creo Parametric, Onshape, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk AutoCAD, Siemens NX, Siemens Solid Edge, Siemens Capital or Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS. CAD users can find the 3D CAD & BIM models of all manufacturer catalogs directly in the CAD system without any detours.
