CADENAS Partners With Onshape

CADENAS are a leading software developer in the areas of Strategic Parts Management, parts reduction (PARTsolutions), and Electronic Product Catalogs (eCATALOGsolutions). They have fully integrated its millions of part models into Onshape, a new cloud-based CAD system that runs on any computer, tablet or phone.

Engineers, designers and builders can now access over 400 3D CAD manufacturer catalogs for free, directly from the program, Onshape. In 2015, CAD users imported more than 152 million 3D CAD models from the CADENAS 3D CAD models download portal PARTcommunity. CAD users can select their desired part models directly in Onshape, and integrate them into their design within an Onshape assembly.

Access to CADENAS 3D CAD manufacturer catalogs is enabled through the deep integration of the 3D CAD download portal PARTcommunity. “As an Innovation Company, CADENAS is constantly striving to incorporate new approaches and technologies into our products,” says Walter Leder, COO of the CADENAS GmbH. “We love to cooperate with companies that revolutionize the market and with Onshape we have the perfect partner.”

“We’re delighted to integrate CADENAS parts into Onshape and give our customers millions of more choices of parts and components when designing their products,” says Darren Henry, Onshape’s Director of Marketing. “Onshape is all about speeding up the design process and we’re confident our community will value the additional time savings from having instant access to these models.”

Onshape, which runs in a web browser or mobile app (Android and iOS), is especially designed for teams. It is said to be the first professional 3D CAD system to enable multiple people to simultaneously work on the same model.

If users already have the Onshape app, they just have to use it to gain access. In their documents, there is an own tab where they get access to the 3D CAD manufacturer catalogs. Users who don’t have Onshape app have to subscribe the app once to get access afterwards.
