Geometric Search

The Geometric Similarity Search of CADENAS' Strategic Parts Management system PARTsolutions searches and compares parts according to the respective CAD geometries.

Find the needle in the haystack!

Beginning with a reference part (catalog part, self-constructed part, repeat part or company standard) or the rough sketch of a 3D CAD model you can, just like search engines, browse the whole database for CAD components.

The result is a ranking list of the most similar parts which are displayed visually.
