Physna, short for “Physical DNA,” is a geometric search engine designed to enable engineers to develop better workflow, find CAD drawings faster, reduce part duplication, and more easily compare part and component drawings.

Whereas CAD programs rely on text-based naming conventions and metatags that might not be consistent across multiple engineers or locations, Physna makes geometric search in order to find parts quickly and accurately.

Physna is available as a plugin for CAD and PLM software or as a standalone software product. It can be used in the cloud or on site to meet ITAR requirements. Physna works with most file types, the company says, enabling geometric search across multiple CAD platforms.
