CAD Software 3D CAD models available with a few clicks
Avevas and Cadenas have joined forces to integrate the technical search engine, 3DfindIT.com, into the Aveva E3D Design system. Users of this 3D design solution now have the ability to select accurate equipment models from thousands of manufacturer catalouegs and integrate them directly within their CAD software environment.
By combining their forces, Cadenas and Avevas want to transform engineering processes by accelerating the detailed design phase of industrial capital projects and the development of Engineering Digital Twins. To this end, a new, free plugin will provide users of Avevas’s 3D design solution with the ability to select accurate equipment models from thousands of manufacturer catalogues and integrate them directly within their computer aided design (CAD) software environment, saving hours in design time and costly rework.
The 3DfindIT.com plugin deploys intuitive search methods including 3D geometric similarity search, sketch search, color search, and function search, are specially tailored to the needs of CAD users. With the integration of 3DfindIT.com into Aveva’s 3D design suite, users will no longer be required to spend hours surfing the web to find and verify the parts they need for their plant or ship design. Instead, engineers can quickly configure the desired components individually and capture the CAD & Building Information Modeling (BIM) equipment models directly into their existing designs with just a few clicks, all within a fully integrated design environment.
