Access Millions of Parts on CADENAS’ 3D Parts Catalog

cadenas siemens academic community image.pngWe just announced a new academic part portal for students and educators using Siemens PLM software. 

You already know that integrating real-world applications and projects into the classroom better prepares your students for industry.

Now you and your students can access and download standard parts from CADENAS’ massive digital database – for free. 


As noted in the press release: “Engineering excellence can only be achieved with practical orientation,” said Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS. ”Students are now able to use the same resources as the industry pros.” 


We extended our partnership with CADENAS to provide this academic part portal to you. Register on the site – – to quickly locate and use 3D parts from more than 400 manufacturers. Parts are available in NX, Solid Edge and JT 3D data formats.


Like work after graduation, we think this will enable students to spend more time adding value to their product designs.


Here is a video demonstration of the tool:


We think this will be a valuable resource for your classroom. Let us know what you think.
