CAD files, the basis of Parts Management

In order for companies to properly manage their standard components, they must be able to access the 2D and 3D CAD files of the suppliers of their standard parts (ABB, AMPHENOL, BOSSARD, EMERSON, EATON, FESTO, SKF, etc.).

For us at UNIK-ID, providing a service in this area was the obvious choice. Nevertheless, this service had to be:

  • different than existing platforms
  • of real interest to CAD users
  • totally free of charge

Lily therefore developed the very first version of our 2D & 3D CAD components platform (in English for the moment), which you can discover at the bottom of this page.

The needs of CAD users

Before launching our CAD components platform, we spoke to more than 300 CAD users from around the world and learned the following:

 

  • CAD users trust the websites of their suppliers much more than community download platforms: on the supplier websites, the data is secure, up-to-date, and usually more complete.
  • Download platforms are useful as they consolidate several suppliers in one central location but are often incomplete and therefore do not always allow companies to bypass the websites of suppliers
  • Currently, there is no way to quickly inform CAD users when suppliers release CAD files of their products

Service at its finest

We listened to CAD users while creating our platform:

 

  • We only offer direct links to the download areas of suppliers. These links are checked regularly so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
  • We list all suppliers free of charge. Gone are the days of navigating between platforms. We’re committed to listing everything. All you have to do is ask!
  • We actively monitor all the manufacturers of standard parts and inform you as soon as CAD files become available on their sites
  • And much more…
