Pleasant surprise for PARTcommunity: New download record of more than 25.5 million

Christmas at CADENAS this year already began in November
25,5 Mio Downloads by PARTcommunity (PresseBox) (Augsburg, ) There was good reason for CADENAS to be happy already a month before Christmas: In November, the 3D CAD models download portal PARTcommunity registered an absolute record for CAD downloads per month of nearly 25.5 million parts. "We're excited that our users are so convinced about PARTcommunity and treat us to such record numbers", says Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS. "Together with the increasing number of users, it's important feedback for us. They also let us know which parts and manufacturer catalogs they require via the preferred catalog function. We do all we can to continually expand the offer on PARTcommunity and to be the first point of contact for engineers, designers and CAD users."

The next record is already in view: Number of annual downloads will be surpassed

Since the beginning of 2017, there has been an increasing number of monthly downloads of 3D CAD engineering data on the 3D CAD download portal PARTcommunity. Nearly every month has seen downloads of over 20 million – in 2016 such numbers were registered in certain months, whereas in 2017 the number has now been established. "Our specified goal was for 240 million downloads per year", Jürgen Heimbach explains and adds with a wink: "We know already that we'll clearly top that number!"

PARTcommunity as a daily tool for millions of engineers

Constant optimizations, extensions and outstanding innovations are the basis for the increasing trend of CAD models downloads on the CADENAS portal. Engineers and designers worldwide can download 3D CAD components around the clock and import them into their CAD system in more than 100 genuine native formats such as Autodesk, Revit, SolidEdge, SolidWorks, NX etc. The entire contents of over 460 manufacturer-certified CAD product catalogs are available to them. The download portal also offers extensive intelligent search functions such as 2D sketches search or the Geometric Similarity Search GEOsearch.  

Successful marketing of technical products worldwide

This makes the CADENAS 3D CAD models download portal PARTcommunity the daily tool for millions of engineers and purchasers worldwide. An Electronic Product Catalog is ideal for component manufacturers to market their products successfully and internationally. The advantage for manufacturers is clearly evident. Nearly 87% of the downloaded CAD models lead to products eventually sold.

90 vertical online marketplaces, portals and social communities such as Autodesk, DraftSight and Solid Edge serve as multipliers for the Electronic Product Catalogs, where one's own product catalog is represented as well. The online marketplaces are also being steadily expanded. 
With a potential of worldwide over 16.1 million engineers, the 3D CAD models in the Electronic Product Catalogs of component manufacturers are reaching the right target group.
