Liberating CAD Data to Drive Insights and Visibility
CADnection is a search solution that helps engineering and manufacturing companies find information and insights trapped in the content of CAD drawings. The solution is built on Lucidworks’ Fusion Platform and extends the power of the platform’s cognitive search engine which is trusted by some of the world’s largest companies and scales to billions of documents and millions of users.
Built on a Proven Foundation
Lucidworks’ Next-Generation Fusion Platform
Fusion Server combines the Apache Solr open-source search engine with the distributed power of Apache Spark for artificial intelligence. Highly scalable, Fusion Server indexes and stores data for real-time discovery.
Fusion AI applies machine learning at the moment of data ingestion for NLP, document classification, and topic detection. At query time, Fusion AI predicts the user’s intent and returns relevant, hyper-personalized results.
Fusion App Studio allows search engineers to rapidly develop rich applications. It combines a development environment, powerful pre-configured components, and APIs for developing powerful search user experiences.
Lucidworks and vdR Group
Liberating CAD Data to Drive Insights and Visibility with CADnection
vdR is Lucidworks’ engineering and manufacturing domain partner. To support this relationship, vdR has developed CADnection to help extend the search and insights capabilities of Lucidworks’ Fusion Platform into all the major computer-aided-design formats such as AutoCAD, Catia, Inventor, NX, SolidWorks, and Revit. Users can now easily find and view data that’s been trapped in CAD files and models across disparate file folders and siloed applications such as ECM, PLM, PDM, ERP, MES, and MRO systems.
Operational highlights include, intelligent data extraction, integrated 3D and 2D visualization, P&ID dynamic-navigation, BOM structure navigation, “where-used” insights, and “composed of” relationships. CADnection is a business unit of vdR Group. vdR is a Gold Certified Lucidworks partner.
