"We initially evaluated CADseek against all other shape-based search engines with a pilot of 50,000 CAD files. CADseek was the hands down winner. We found iSEEK to meet and exceed all expectations."
Brian Rugh, John Deere
We are extremely pleased with how [Analytics] is working for us and its usefulness. [...] We see many benefits of continuing to use CADSEEK.
The iSEEK Corporation’s management and staff have provided Peterbilt with excellent support over the two years of association with their CADseek product. iSEEK has been very responsive incorporating product enhancements to address our needs. Their CADSEEK product has the functionality necessary to help our company reduce costs through several paths. CADSEEK can improve reuse and repurposing of existing designs by rapidly identifying similar parts through both geometric model based
comparison and attribute based search engines. The tool can also rapidly identify existing duplicate parts permitting cost savings through consolidation, standardization and part number reduction. iSEEK’s technical expertise and proprietary approaches for geometric comparison have been well proven in our evaluations.”
Rick Mihelic, Engineering Systems Manager, Peterbilt Motors Company
"CADSEEK has had a good acceptance among our designers, and we have measured the reuse of about 30 parts already. We attained six times the return on our investment within seven months of deploying CADSEEK."
Effective shape-based search must tackle two primary jobs: identifying topology similarities and displaying results in a comprehensible fashion. CADseek accomplishes both with ease and simplicity.
Then I have days like this week when it makes it all worth it – when I find what could become a super promising startup that solves a very difficult problem in a brilliant way.
What I discovered was iSeek, a firm with a handful of employees, but an early customer list that includes very well-known industrial manufacturing firms who have purchased a visual search tool that is hard to explain in text, but instantly intuitive in a demo. Basically, what iSeek has built over a decade of hard work is an open-ended search engine that allows users to broadly look for parts in an unstructured manner. If you ever met with Endeca before that firm was subsumed by Oracle, you would instantly recognize the concept – and the next evolutionary stage visual search and analytics functionality that iSeek delivers. So far, use cases include engineers and supply chain managers who want to find parts faster or compare parts to eliminate wasteful purchasing.
