NAS 3D CAD Models

AIA has partnered with IHS and CADENAS PARTsolutions to offer authorized 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models of components based on critical National Aerospace Standards (NAS), providing a valuable new tool for engineers across the aerospace industry to accelerate innovation, shorten design cycles and reduce costs.  The NAS 3D CAD model library will be offered in an annual subscription format beginning in January 2014.  Read the Press Release announcing the partnership here.

Key benefits include:

  • Reduced modeling and design cycle times;
  • Improved engineering productivity;
  • Elimination of duplicated effort and rework;
  • Assurance of quality through the use of authorized CAD models;
  • Increased consistency in parts used on projects; and
  • Greater accuracy in bills of materials.
