CADENAS PARTsolutions Integrates Onshape Virtual Design Tool

CADENAS_logoCINCINNATI, OH, May 14, 2015 – CADENAS PARTsolutions announce a new integration with virtual design tool Onshape, giving users direct access to hundreds of manufacturer catalogs and millions of 3D CAD models via the cloud-based PARTcommunity download portal.

051415_CADENAS_onshapeOnshape is the first and only full-cloud 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team simultaneously work together using a web browser, phone or tablet. Users can instantly share cloud-native documents and simultaneously work with peers anywhere around the world. Their new, simplified approach to mating components enables the user to define complex Assembly relationships with one-third fewer steps than traditional CAD.

Instant Access to Millions of 3D CAD models

A key component of Onshape’s virtual design tool is the integrated library of authorized supplier parts, built by CADENAS PARTsolutions. This integration provides Onshape users with direct access to 3D CAD models from more than 400 industrial manufacturers. The parts library brings added functionality by pre-populating a catalog of standard and supplier parts for use within user interface, shortening design time and increasing design accuracy.

New and Larger Audience

CADENAS PARTsolutions’ integration with Onshape enables manufacturers to reach a new and larger audience by allowing users to order parts once they are pulled into a design. Part numbers, configurations, and options are built in, providing the user’s purchasing department with the exact part to order. The manufacturer gets a sale, and the Onshape virtual design tool user has access to millions of parts that can be configured and downloaded into designs in their native format.

The Future of CAD Modeling

Virtual design tools like Onshape provide users with ease of part integration, assembly mating, and collaboration abilities not found in desktop CAD software. Add in CADENAS’ library of authorized supplier parts and Onshape’s virtual design tool beats any desktop software.
