CADFind3D Product Range

See the bottom of the page for recommended system configurations.
Notes: 1. Previous versions of CADFind supported mixed 2D and 3D catalogues and allowed searching for 3D parts from 2D sketches or drawings. These versions are available through our bespoke service.  Contact for more details. 2. The ‘Batch’ add function allows any number of parts to be added to CADFind3D’s catalogue in a single pass, with no further involvement required of the user.  CADfind3D can typically process around 1000 parts/hour. This rate depends on the complexity of the parts and the speed of the workstation. However it should be noted that part complexity does not affect CADFind3D’s search speed - it can search 50,000 parts in under 5 seconds on a typical workstation. 3. The Application Programming Interface (API) allows an external program to add, search, & delete parts from catalogues. This means CADFind can be used as part of a customer-developed system. Recommended System Configurations The Personal version of CADFind3D is intended for use by an individual designer.  The system uses a single catalogue (i.e. parts database) that can hold 1100 parts (FREE version) or up to 5000 parts (Personal Edition). The Enterprise versions are intended to be used in more complex applications where different catalogues need to be used to reflect different product ranges or types of part and where the number of parts involved is much larger.  These applications normally involve a team of people needing access to CADFind3D Usually each catalogue is managed by an ‘owner’, running a ‘Master’ system, who authorizes the addition or deletion of parts from the catalogue whilst other people may only need Read-only access, in which case they can use ‘Client’ licences.  These Enterprise systems have no limits on the number or size of the catalogues used.  We would recommend that each catalogue is limited to around 50,000 parts.  Thus a typical Enterprise implementation involves a mix of ‘Master’ and ‘Client’ licences.
