Why is high-quality digital product data so important for the day-to-day work of engineers and designers? What is the difference between STEP and native CAD data? These and other questions were answered in the CADENAS webinar "STEP vs. NATIVE CAD data". For all those who missed the event, there is now a video recording to rewatch.

Smooth and optimized collaboration between MCAD & ECAD: Millions of 3D CAD & CAE product data with information on circuit diagram symbols, connections, component types (connector, cable, standard component, terminal, etc.) or parent-child relationships are available free of charge in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D.

Since 1970, World Standards Day is celebrated each year on October 14. Standards are indispensable for the expansion of technological innovations, such as electromobility, because they accelerate development processes, ensure a high level of quality and increase acceptance of new technologies.

35 teams from around the world submitted their clever design ideas to the 8th Engineering Newcomer challenge.
