Sense and purpose is a marketplace and community for professional users and creators of software (+plugins, libraries, services, etc.) in the fields of CAD, CAM, design and production. It helps you to get more out of your software and to perfect the application. Here, everything revolves around the software you use!

  • You are:
    • professional Software-User
    • Professional software creator or service provider
    • working in the environment of CAD, CAM, design or production
    • an expert in your field or you want to become one
  • You want to:
    • build a distribution channel and offer digital products and services
    • make your software more efficient through digital extensions

Become active on the marketplace for digital extensions and services!


On the marketplace you can create your own webshop for free and sell unlimited digital products and services internationally. Costs only arise when a sale is made. For legal reasons, the sale/purchase is only possible for companies/freelancers/traders. In principle, no products can be sold/purchased that require postal delivery.

Possible digital product types are:

  • Addins/Addons
  • Libraries
  • Documentations
  • Technical Literature/Regulations
  • Freeware
  • Functions/Macros
  • Services
  • Scripts
  • Software
  • Support or consulting services
  • Testversions
  • Tutorials
  • Translations
  • Presetting sets/templates
  • Webinars and Workshops


The community functions (E-Groups) as well as the creation of job offers (E-Searches) and self-presentations in the form of microsites (E-Offers) can be used free of charge, even without company identification.

By the way, the “E” stands for expert!

I look forward to an exciting and efficient time with you all on!
