An overview of Physna software and its tools for engineers and designers in CAD and PLM, including shape search, finding parts within parts, feature recognition, AI and machine learning, automated part classification, PLM cleanup and duplicate reduction and identification, finding components and highlighting differences and similarities, etc.
Physna is internationally protected IP and is widely regarded as the most advanced 3D search and analysis technology on the market.
Physna, short for “Physical DNA” (aka “PNA”), breaks CAD models and other 3D models down into a proprietary codified, normalized and standardized structure that allows for automated geometric search, also called shape search, CAD search, part search, or by Physna users even as 3D autofill, along with automated model analysis and comparison. Physna can find parts in parts, show where models fit in assemblies, identify duplicates and near-duplicates, help standardize designs, and more. Physna utilizes advanced AI and machine learning to automatically classify parts and components, how to make them, who can make them, CAD model costs and pricing, materials required / material usage, and much more.
Physna reduces redundant designs, increases part reuse and improves engineering efficiency by up to 400%. It also reduces procurement costs by up to 40% by identifying where components are used throughout companies, and which suppliers can offer or manufacture which parts. Because interchangeable parts and duplicates are identified geometrically, Physna also reduces sparing issues, where unnecessary spare parts are kept and needed spares in inventory go unused.
Physna works with virtually all CAD and PLM systems, as well as PDM software, ERP software and even custom software via its API. Physna can be deployed on the cloud or on-premise.
Physna bridges the gap between 2D digital data and our 3D physical world.
