Geometric Search

The Geometric Similarity Search GEOsearch from PARTsolutions by CADENAS searches and compares parts according to the respective CAD geometries.

Find the needle in the haystack

Beginning with a reference part (Catalog part, self-designed part, reused part or factory 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 geometrically most similar 3D CAD parts, which are displayed visually.
