CADENAS equipment models integration accelerates engineering efficiency for AVEVA E3D Design users

Seamless, free access to thousands of manufacturer catalogs directly within AVEVA's 3D modeling software

3D equipment models powered by CADENAS for AVEVA E3D Design.

AVEVA and CADENAS have joined forces to integrate the CADENAS technical search engine,, into the AVEVA™ E3D Design system in the process plant and marine industries. This new, free plugin will provide users of AVEVA’s 3D design solution with the ability to select accurate equipment models from thousands of manufacturer catalogs and integrate them directly within their computer aided design (CAD) software environment, saving hours in design time and costly rework. “This partnership transforms engineering processes by accelerating the detailed design phase of industrial capital projects and the development of Engineering Digital Twins,” says Amish Sabharwal, Executive Vice President of the Engineering Business at AVEVA.

CAD models available in just a few clicks

The plugin, which is compatible from AVEVA™ E3D Design version 2.1, deploys intuitive search methods including 3D geometric similarity search, sketch search, color search, and function search, are specially tailored to the needs of CAD users. With the integration of into AVEVA’s 3D design suite, users will no longer be required to spend hours surfing the web to find and verify the parts they need for their plant or ship design. Instead, engineers can quickly configure the desired components individually and capture the CAD & Building Information Modeling (BIM) equipment models directly into their existing designs with just a few clicks, all within a fully integrated design environment.

In alignment with AVEVA’s and CADENAS’ shared ambition to accelerate industrial digital transformation, this new offer will provide a step-change in engineering work processes by improving overall engineering efficiency and accuracy and ultimately helping the customers deliver industrial capital projects around the world on-time and on-budget.
