Customer Feedback

Let yourself be convinced by the positive feedback of our customers about the Electronic CAD Product Catalog with eCATALOGsolutions!

This simple, standalone system requires no CAD access or previous engineering experience; they download and start creating in minutes. Designs will be more accurate the first time and iterate much faster. One of my favorite features is how all of the fasteners and connectors are automatically generated for the design and everything is added to the BOM.

This effort is customer driven. Customers really want access to our product CAD data without drawing it themselves. All of our customers design on CAD. And they're ready to accept our data. This is a value added service that our customers need.
Bob Starr

D-M-E Company
We want to support our customers to generate technical documentation. They together with our new, free of charge service will not only be able to illustrate solutions which are in need of explanation, but even be able to select on the screen the appropriate products via the Lapp 3D CAD catalog.
Norbert Gregor
Managing Director
U.I. Lapp GmbH
We have known CADENAS for a long time. In our internal design, we often work with components form diverse electronic catalogs. Moreover CADENAS is one of the few providers of 3D CAD objects for mechanical engineering (plant engineering) as well as architecture (BIM). This way we kill two flies with one stone.

Brother Gearmotors’ new product configurator will greatly aid our customers in determining the ideal products for their needs. The tool it’s self provides true native CAD formats, which our users are extremely happy with. Plus, it’s great from an administration standpoint, because the new tool is easy for our team to use and fast for us make updates.

They provided a good level of support throughout the project and that was something our old system was missing.It is great to work with a highly motivated company that is always looking to deliver new and innovative technology. For example, we love the Microsoft HoloLens which would allow our customers to interact with our products in a virtual augmented reality providing huge communication benefits.

The benefits of this solution from CADENAS is to enable design and engineer teams to reach Güvenal products faster and easier.
Tayfun Tarakcioglu
International Trade Department Manager
Güvenal
Each download is a foot in the door for us. The catalog provides us with more ways to connect with the customer throughout the design process. Our logo is embedded onto the model and the product metadata is preserved within the native CAD model and the bill of materials. That data leads the customer back to us when the project moves from the design stage and into the procurement phase.
John Joyce
Director of Marketing
Brennan Industries
Decisive reasons for choosing CADENAS was the high reach of our 3D CAD data in our strategic business areas and worldwide contact to potential new customers. To us an Electronic Product Catalog, in connection with the 3D CAD model download portal PARTcommunity, is the perfect possibility to provide our international target group with our products and design data in the most uncomplicated way.
Rainer Steinle

Our engineering team loves the new tool because their workload has decreased, and our customers love it because we are providing the information they need faster and in more formats than ever before. Being easy to work with means answering questions quickly and accurately. By providing on demand access to our customers, we give them the ability to quickly and accurately answer the questions themselves. That’s something this new generation expects, and we’re meeting the challenge.

Together with the CADENAS team of experts, the RK Rose+Krieger PARTcommunity portal was extended with a new product configurator for our linear units to improve customer service. This enables engineers to easily assemble the desired linear unit as needed, with plausibility checks in the background.
Bernd Klöpper

The nice thing is our customers can go right to the Web, select the configuration they want with the exact dimensions they need and get a rendering right there. That saves a tremendous amount of time for customers. When they’re happy with the configuration, they download full, native design data.
Terry Oplinger, Jr.

Due to the possibility to visualize the products with eCATALOGsolutions in 3D and by shifting and turning them from all sides in a simulated reality, the customer gets a complete overview of the product.

SOUCHIER
It is clear that our customers increasingly want to plan scaffolding solutions themselves within their own CAD environments. Therefor a wide range of CAD systems are used. So we decided in favour of the Multi CAD Component Library from CADENAS as a comprehensive solution that would provide us with the broadest possible base.
Jochen Köhler

The goal was to save time on both sides. With the configurator by CADENAS, the customer gets the response to his question immediately, while SOUCHIER can concentrate on the more difficult cases due to the reduced amount of inquiries.
David Maillart
Manager research and development
SOUCHIER
Formerly, customers had a tough time gauging size and scale of our products, which made selecting the correct part for their application difficult too. We would provide dimensions but often that wasn’t enough. Sometimes we would end up sending physical samples, which is very inefficient and costly. Now, the customer gets to digitally ‘touch and feel’ the product before they buy. The instant 3D visualization is a great way to preview the product, and the native 3D CAD model is the perfect way to test it digitally in a specific environment.

We can now include our part numbering information directly in the CAD model. It’s particularly important to our customers because it improves order accuracy. Any system based on IGES or STEP simply can’t do that completely.

The Electronic Product Catalog and the 3D CAD models are an excellent presentation of our products. Both our customers as well as our sales department benefit from this form of providing information.

It was critical for our customers to get CAD data fast, 24 hours a day, from anywhere in the world, in the format they want. It also still had to retain all of the essential product information.
