100 million native 3D models immediately downloadable from Tracepartsonline Saint Romain (France) – February 1st, 2011
– TraceParts, a leading digital engineering 3D content company, and SpaceClaim, the leader in 3D Direct Modeling for engineering design, today announced the launch of an extensive online parts library seamlessly integrated with SpaceClaim’s 3D design software. This new online resource is the first of its kind to deliver native SpaceClaim models from hundreds of part catalogs commonly used in the Machinery, Tooling, Automotive and Aerospace industries.
Freely accessible from www.tracepartsonline.net/ws/spaceclaim, the new SpaceClaim 3D content portal brings considerable productivity benefits to the fast growing SpaceClaim user community. Without any desktop library to install on their PC, engineers benefit from an incredible content source, which is always up-to-date. Selected parts are directly inserted inside SpaceClaim together with their bill of materials’ attributes, such as description, part number, supplier name, and more. The time saved in this way allows the engineer to spend more time on the critical stages of the design process.
