Frequently Asked Questions

What is a challenge?

It is our goal to increase the exchange of knowledge among engineers of our portal PARTcommunity. As a benefit for our active community members we have created several challenges together with the support of numerous component manufacturers, which are awarded with interesting prizes.

How does it work?

Follow the description and tasks of the respective engineering challenge. Post your contribution together with a photo or screenshot to the defined section within the PARTcommunity portal. After the process is finished an independent jury will figure out the winner and notify him.


We'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have per email under Marketing@cadenas.de or via telephone under +49 (0)821 2 58 58 0 - 0.

Social Share


Share your 3D Soccer Tip in other platforms and win an orignal World Cup Football.

How does it work?

Login to PARTcommunity and create your 3D Soccer Tip with the  interactive configurator then share the downloaded model in other 3D platforms. After successfully uploading it post a screenshot into the group 3D WM Soccer Tips. It’s irrelevant if it is correct. All you need is this the “screenshot as evidence”.

Examples for other 3D platforms:

Example for screenshot:

For each sharing action you are awarded points throughout the duration of the world cup.
The point system works as follows:

1 Point for each Tip you share
10 Point for each platform you share on

You uploaded 3 Tips one 1 platform = 13 Points – 10 for platform; 3x1 for tips
You uploaded the same 3 Tips on three platforms = 39 points 3x10 for platforms; 3x3 for Tips

What can you win?

At the end of the world cup all points will be added up and who has the most points will win an original Brazuca world cup football worth: 80 EUR

Who can participate?

All duly registered members of CADENAS PARTcommunity who are at least 18 years of age
