3D CAD Industry Standards

Ensure quality, reliability, safety, and compliance by using 3D CAD models from IHS Markit and CADENAS PARTsoluitons.

In a world of intensifying pressures on engineering teams to work faster and smarter, many recognize the efficiency and consistency that comes from the digital interoperability of adopting industry standard 3D CAD wherever possible. An estimated 45% of a design engineer's time is spent searching or recreating CAD models of parts for designs; an inefficiency that engineering teams cannot afford.
