Fast and efficient design with HellermannTyton 3D CAD models
Download of 3D CAD models has been seamlessly integrated into the company website
In cooperation with CADENAS, HellermannTyton is providing the 3D and 2D CAD data for thousands of its products for free to download.
HellermannTyton is one of the leading global manufacturers and suppliers of products for fastening, fixing, marking, protecting and processing cables and wires. By implementing this CADENAS service, the company has made it especially easy for engineers to find cable management solutions and then import the respective CAD models of these products directly into their design. The Electronic Product Catalog based on CADENAS’ eCATALOGsolutions technology makes this possible. It currently includes HellermannTyton cable ties and fixings and cable protection products.
Seamless integration of 3D CAD download in product search results
Under the “Products” tab on the www.hellermanntyton.com website, engineers can now view the 3D CAD models of numerous products and download them. This service is featured in the search results alongside links to supplier sources and the respective catalog page for each product. The respective 3D CAD model and its preview are shown to the user in the internet browser via the PARTcommunity 3D web viewer. CADENAS’ PARTcommunity embedded technology has been enabling direct integration of the 3D CAD download into the company websites of component manufacturers since the middle of 2014.

HellermannTyton 3D CAD models are also available via their dedicated PARTcommunity download portal. Engineers can browse for parts in the catalog structure or discover them using the full-text search under www.hellermanntyton.partcommunity.com.
