CAPVIDIA announces cooperation with CADENASLEUVEN, June 26, 2014, CAPVIDIA, a world leader in 3D engineering software, announces a newly established cooperation with CADENAS GmbH, a world market leader for standard parts software solutions.

The CADENAS flagship software product PARTsolutions for parts management will be extended by Capvidia`s “Feature Recognition”, “3D CAD Data Exchange, Repair and Healing”, as well “Reverse Engineering” capabilities.

PARTsolutions is the answer for engineering and purchase to easily find components and standard parts. The software helps to reduce and control part inventories and moreover cut down production costs considerably during the design phase, allowing coming to a “make or buy” decision quickly and efficiently.

The CAPVIDIA functionality will be integrated for the CADENAS PARTsolutions suit to provide a broad access to PMI (Product Manufacturing Information) and 3D model feature definition, by analyzing the 3D model (BREP representation) and automatically identifying entities such as: cylinders, cones, planes, cylindrical segments, elongated cylinders, arcs, lines, opposite planes, etc. (over 20 different features are automatically recognized) and linked with the information from the PMI defining feature characteristics such as: circularity, concentricity, angularity, parallelism, flatness, perpendicularity, etc. The feature and characteristic information is easily accessible over open XML based QIF/ CAPXML file format.


The Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium announces that the QIF v1.0 (Quality Information Framework) draft standard is now available for public review in the ANSI weekly publication called Standards Action.  To participate in the formal ANSI public review and comment process, please go to for more information.  The public review period is from September 20, 2013, to November 4, 2013.
