Customer Successes

CADNexus provides solutions to leading companies and organizations worldwide, covering a variety of industries and applications.

NASACADNexus supports NASA in a number of initiatives and software packages. CAPRI is the preferred CAD import option for Chimera Grid Toolset. OverGrid users can directly import CAD models in a mesh-ready format (learn more about using CAPRI with Overgrid). CAPRI also provides the central infrastructure for design and analysis studies using CART3D at NASA Ames Research Center. CAPRI is used for automatic geometry processing and watertight triangulations directly from CAD, which have enabled 100s of design iterations with parametric models to be performed without any manual intervention (learn more about using CAPRI with Cart3D).


Bombardier Bombardier is the world's third largest civil aircraft manufacturer covering aviation products and services for the business, regional and amphibious aircraft markets.CADNexus is collaborating with Bombardier aeronautics group to make parametric CAD more integrated and usable upfront in their design process. CAPRI being used as a gateway to build their CAD-based aerodynamics meshing and design system.
