Improving Access to Engineering Data

Improving access to engineering data is our mission.   At it’s essence, engineering data is related to shape.  We utilize the precision and intelligence embedded in CAD models to make those models more accessible and work harder for the enterprise via geometry-based search and analytics.

We understand that shape-search is something that has been over-hyped and under delivered for a very long time.  CADseek is the solution you’ve been looking for.  We have high quality references in companies like John Deere and MOEN.  Our largest installation is a Global Fortune 500 company where CADseek operates from a single server, with more 2 million models available to search by more than 3,500 users scattered across thirty global locations, and where CADseek is integrated with CAD, PLM and proprietary databases.

iSEEK said it has expanded its CADSEEK platform with Polaris that enhances core shape algorithms for greater accuracy and speed, and extends the technology to hunt down similar individual parts from an assembly. iSEEK said it has delivered CADSEEK Polaris to Deere & Co.
“a customer will be able to conduct a shape search over their internal CAD databases, search their 2-D data and documents and search the web all from one browser-based interface.”​

CADSeek Products


Polaris is a Windows desktop application combining geometry and attribute search. Polaris is the go-to tool when searching for a design for possible reuse in a new application, to consider the cost of an existing highly similar part when estimating for the new part, to find which vendors supply an existing similar part, and so much more.

CADseek Advisor

CADseek Advisor is a CAD plug-in that monitors a design session in a non-intrusive manner, and alerts a designer to existing similar designs only at points where significant changes have been made to the model.

PLM Integration

CADseek search is now fully integrated with PTC Windchill and Aras Innovator PLMs.

CADseek Analytics

CADseek Analytics provides a fully automated analysis of geometric similarity across an entire library of CAD models in order to find duplication, opportunities for standardization and unwarranted variances in price or performance.
Meta-data filtering for attributes such as material, cost or supplier allows slicing the dataset in an endless variety of ways.

CADSeek Identify

Too often parts get separated from their packaging resulting in lost identities and scrapped parts. The Identify application solves this problem with photo-based identification using a standard tablet or smartphone.


The website is the world’s first universal index for 3D content on the web. The site gathers web content from sources such as Google, Smithsonian, the Protein Databank, and many more, and makes the data highly searchable with CADseek Geometric search.
