In the past, sourcing these CAD standards was a manual task where engineers had to translate a 2D representation into a 3D model. This manual translation created an opportunity for errors and often omitted critical meta data needed by sourcing and procurement. That has all changed thanks to the Society of Automotive Engineers launching their new native CAD models for the SAE/AS Aerospace Standard.

SAE/AS 3D CAD Models are now available from IHS Markit and CADENAS for use directly within Dassault SOLIDWORKS and other CAD platforms. The new tool delivers standard 3D parts directly into an engineer’s open CAD project, streamlining the specification process.
By providing access to their 3D part library and providing CAD models in more than 150 formats, SAE is ensuring their digital solution is as rock-solid as the physical products they sell. CADENAS PARTsolutions technology platform enables SAE and IHS to deliver product models in Autodesk AutoCAD®, Autodesk Inventor®, SolidWorks®, Solid Edge®, PTC Wildfire® and CREO®, Siemens NX®, CATIA®, and many more.
