3Dfind.it boosts number of downloaded, intelligent CAD data from electronic manufacturer catalogs

Augsburg, Germany, 18 October 2019. Autumn is not only the time when colorful kites fly to unreachable heights, the 3D CAD download numbers are also on the rise.

3Dfind.it gives CAD download numbers a boost

The number of 3D CAD downloads is also boosted by 3Dfind.it, the new visual search engine for 3D manufacturer components of the next dimension developed by CADENAS and recently launched. With its intelligent search functions and the free download of CAD & BIM data, 3Dfind.it is the indispensable platform for architects, planners, engineers and designers.
