Optimal CAD data for engineers

Provide engineers with maximum comfort and functionality during product development. With eCATALOGsolutions you make your product data available so engineers can embed these into their designs simple and easily.


Technology from the last century

3D CAD models of competitors solely provide mere geometry. To check the feasibility of a design, engineers need much more information.

CADENAS modern technology

CADENAS intelligent 3D CAD models offer plenty of important information far beyond the geometry of a part. Is it possible to tension the coin? What are the adjustments options?

CADENAS 3D model in the CAD system

By means of CADENAS intelligent 3D CAD models, engineers can check the functionality of selected parts directly in their CAD System.

CAD models with intelligent information

The geometry of a part alone is not enough for construction. With eCATALOGsolutions your Electronic Product Catalog contains CAD models
with intelligent functions that go beyond simple geometry.
CADENAS  eCATALOGsolutions offers intelligent functions for CAD models

This gives engineers the opportunity to test the path of motion already in the CAD system.

More than 100 different CAD formats

With the Electronic Product Catalog, your products are available as native 3D CAD models in over 100 different file formats in current CAD systems, such as: CATIA®, Autodesk® Inventor®, SolidWorks®, Creo Parametric, NX™, AutoCAD® or Solid Edge®.

Your components in over 85 different CAD formats

Necessity of Multi CAD on the example of various car manufacturers

A very comprehensive specification document of the respective car manufacturer regulates how the CAD data of supplier- and standard parts needs to be to use it for designing.

Necessity of Multi CAD automotive manufacturers

The CAD System CATIA is very common, however there are car manufacturers who rely on other CAD Systems like NX™. Automotive component manufacturers do not only have to provide their CAD data in various CATIA formats, but also prepare their data for other CAD Systems like NX.

The Electronic Product Catalog eCATALOGsolutions CADENAS supports i.a.:

  • BMW Group guideline for the design of supplier- and standard parts with CATIA V5

  • VW / AUDI specification document 21-38D 597822 design data supplier parts

  • Daimler Requirements 100412 AP2_W10

  • Other guidelines of various car manufacturers or automotive suppliers
