Manufacturer catalogs more popular than ever: 39 million CAD models downloaded for the first time in one month

With the support of the search engine, the CAD download figures are springing up like mushrooms

With the support of the search engine, the CAD download figures are springing up like mushrooms at CADENAS.

This autumn not only mushrooms are shooting up rapidly, but also the number of 3D CAD downloads. In October 2019, engineers and buyers worldwide downloaded 39,355,366 engineering data from more than 500 product catalogs of well-known manufacturers for their designs. The number of 3D CAD downloads is also increasing thanks to, the innovative visual search engine for 3D manufacturer components developed by CADENAS.

Numbers that speak for themselves:

  • Steady growth in 2019: The download record in October is already the 5th monthly record in 2019.
  • High increase in download numbers within 12 months: The number of 3D CAD downloads has increased by 37% within one year, also thanks to (Period: October 2018 - October 2019).
  • Large number of manufacturer catalogs: More than 1,300 catalogs are already represented on
  • Continuous expansion of manufacturer catalogs: More than 300 new catalogs have been added to since September 2019.
  • Worldwide distribution: The goal is to be able to provide up to 25,000 product catalogs for 10 different markets to 50 million users on by 2022. offers worldwide marketing potential for component manufacturers

The innovative search engine from CADENAS was launched in June 2019. Conventional search engines focus specifically on delivering search results that are as suitable for everyday use as possible. However, these are often unsuitable or irrelevant for engineering and architecture. Using, manufacturers and their components can be integrated directly into the CAD & BIM designs of engineers and architects as well as into the respective parts lists. These are then finally procured by the purchasing department. Studies show that in 87% of cases, downloading engineering data later leads to a real purchase of the product.
