3DPartFinder is a shape search engine that does for parts what Google® does with text: It finds and display parts similar to the initial inquiry either from an existing file or from a rough 3D sketch of the target part directly in Autodesk® Inventor®. You could search internally (Server or Vault) or on the Web in our Cloud based Platform and download standard models and technical information from hundreds of suppliers.

Suitable matches are displayed in an assembly of Inventor and are ranked according to their similarities for further analysis. As necessary, you can rotate any part in the assembly and access any detailed information or function available in Inventor. You can easily launch another search using any file results returned by the first search, and define how many results to return.

Analyze your parts, find duplicates, quasi-duplicates and similar using 3DPartFinder Analytics or provide shape search capabilities to all users.
