Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Launch Authorized 3D CAD Models of Aerospace Standards built by CADENAS PARTsolutions

Certified SAE AS digital models enable engineers to quickly configure and deploy native 3D CAD components, accelerating engineering design processes


Authorized digital standards are now available as configurable 3D CAD models, providing a valuable new tool for engineers. With direct integrations to all major CAD & PLM applications including: Autodesk AutoCAD®, Autodesk Inventor®, Dassault SolidWorks®, Siemens Solid Edge®, PTC Wildfire® and PTC CREO®, Siemens NX®, Dassault CATIA®, and many more. Engineers can now instantly find, configure and deploy these digital standards directly into their design.


CADENAS PARTsolutions, a leading provider 3D product catalogs and digital parts management solutions for manufacturers, announces a new partnership with the Society of Automotive engineers (SAE) to offer authorized 3D CAD models of SAE Aerospace Standards (AS) components, providing a valuable new tool for engineers across the aerospace and defense industry to accelerate innovation, shorten design cycles and reduce costs.

Working with CADENAS PARTsolutions to create SAE MOBILUS™, the new 3D CAD and digital product model solution, SAE International will provide a light, versatile option that addresses the many needs of their wide engineering user base.

“By partnering with CADENAS PARTsolutions, SAE is able to bring the aerospace industry a solution to reduce design cycle times and ensure quality and consistency thereby generating savings in both time and money.” Michael Thompson, Director of Aerospace – Electronic Publications.

Aerospace Standards customers will now be able to add SAE MOBILUS to their current SAE datasheet and 3D PDF library, providing access to approved 3D models that can be used directly within their designs. SAE MOBILUS will have multiple benefits for users including: reduced modeling and design cycle times, improved productivity and consistency, while eliminating duplicate efforts, and providing assurance of the highest design accuracy through the use of authorized 3D CAD models.

“SAE customers are increasingly seeking greater digital interoperability with technical content,” says Thompson. “SAE is proud to offer a more robust content solution by introducing 2D/3D drawings of 500 SAE aerospace parts standards.  Customers will now be able to manipulate part dimensions and download drawings from the software in over 150 digital formats.”

The introduction of SAE MOBILUS reflects a trend in the market in which more engineers and manufacturers are embracing digital standardization. In order to achieve engineering efficiency, companies need the components and fasteners they use in their designs represented as certified digital models.

“Every day, we hear from manufacturers who need certified digital models of standard products for their engineering teams, we have filled a big void with the introduction of SAE MOBILUS and the SAE AS digital models,” says Jay Hopper, President and COO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. ”Smart companies have programs to manage their digital assets, but we still see waste in engineering process. It doesn’t make sense for engineering teams to waste time by redesigning and redrawing components which already exist in a certified off-the-shelf model in their exact native format. Using tools like this can save millions for manufacturers looking to streamline their design process.”

Key Benefits

  • Shorter design cycles
  • Increased engineering productivity
  • Quality assured by implementing SAE certified CAD models
  • Increased consistency and standardization in parts used on projects
  • Greater accuracy on bills of materials (BOM)

SAE MOBILUS digital 3D CAD models catalog is available on the SAE standards library, online at The SAE AS catalog is also available in the PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management software platform for engineering teams seeking full integration into their CAD and PLM systems.

PARTsolutions Strategic Parts Management is a behind-the-firewall application which enables engineers to search, configure and launch the entire catalog of SAE AS components directly from their desktop workstation into their designs. Additionally, the platform can be populated with more than 600 catalogs of manufacturer certified components for engineers to source 2D/3D CAD data for designs.

About SAE International (
