Within the framework of its digitalization strategy, SCHUNK rapidly expands its range of digital tools based on eCATALOGsolutions technology from CADENAS: After the successful start of the SCHUNK online configurator for assembly automation, the world's first 3D configurator for gripper/swivel units is now set to follow in its footsteps.

CADENAS and C3D Labs, the fast-growing provider of 3D software development toolkits, today announced their partnership in technology integration: 3D CAD models are now available for free in C3D formats Renga and KOMPAS-3D on the CADENAS download portals BIMcatalogs.net and PARTcommunity.

The new UK BIM Alliance report “A fresh way forward for Product Data” identifies some of the key challenges to the digitaliation of product data and explains why the process is far from ready to use. In order to help building component manufacturers master these challenges, CADENAS provides a comprehensive BIM solution.

Butterfly caterpillars are very picky and usually prefer only a single fodder plant. As if that's not enough, another criterion is their concrete location. Also with the development of new products, the step by step narrowing down of right components by the engineer can often be helpful, which is made possible by PARTsolutions filter assistants.

Schiedel adds the 3D BIM engineering data of their energy-saving chimneys of the ABSOLUT series as well as the entire range of Kingfire stove and heating systems to their Electronic Product Catalog powered by CADENAS. Architects and engineers can now configure and download even more products of the European market leader for chimney and flue gas systems and add to their design in the respective CAD system.

RAILBETON HAAS has been specialized in the planning and production of concrete components for industrial and traffic-facilities construction. For the upcoming age of BIM, a digital 3D BIM CAD catalog has been prepared together with CADENAS. Architects, planners & civil engineers can now download 3D BIM CAD models of concrete bases for signaling equipment at http://railbeton.partcommunity.com.

At Digital Construction Week (DCW) 2018 in London, Wienerberger has demonstrated the organisation’s BIM-readiness by launching their new product data platform Wienerberger Connect – a result of a collaboration between coBuilder and CADENAS. Paul Surin, Head of Built Environment at Wienerberger AG provides insights into the manufacturer’s side of BIM and the decision making process at Wienerberger UK in an interview.
