From Augsburg engineering office to a globally active Innovation Company
The cornerstone of CADENAS was laid in 1992 with a small team around CEO Jürgen Heimbach. Early on, the company recognized the potential of the beginning IT age and specialized in engineering software to optimize design processes. In the following 25 years, the company has developed into one of the most important international providers of Electronic CAD Product Catalogs and Strategic Parts Management and is now represented on all world markets. Leading global players from the sectors of mechanical and electrical engineering, automotive, aerospace as well as architecture, such as Würth, ABB, Festo, Continental, MAN, Daimler or STIHL, use the software solutions to optimize their design process or provide engineers with optimal design data.
Find digital component data with innovative search functions
To support engineers, architects and planners even better in the age of digitization, CADENAS has developed the visual search engine 3Dfindit for digital component data. It enables users to find, configure and download manufacturer-verified 3D CAD or BIM planning & engineering data quickly and easily. Innovative search methods such as 3D Shape Search, Sketch Search, Color Search or Function Search, etc. are available for this purpose, which can be used to find millions of 3D CAD and BIM models from currently over 2500 manufacturer catalogs. The search functions are specifically tailored to the needs of CAD users and can effectively reduce the time required for design and time-to-market.
