TraceParts has launched its native Onshape App, bringing ‘hundreds of millions’ of free standard and supplier-certified 3D models to the 3D CAD system.
Once the TraceParts 3D Design Library app is added to Onshape as a free subscription, designers will be able to instantly find millions of products from over 1,100 leading suppliers of mechanical, electrical, electronics, pneumatics, hydraulics, and many more types of industrial components.
When a product is selected, designers are provided with a real-time 3D preview and a rich Bill of Materials (BOM), and they can directly insert its CAD model inside their design project.
This should greatly simplify and accelerate the design process for Onshape users – adding to that ever important daily productivity and reduced time-to-market for designing new products.
“We are extremely excited to build such a strategic partnership,”said TraceParts CEO Gabriel Guigue. “By leveraging the best of both technologies, we are giving Onshape users easier and greatly optimised access to hundreds of millions of product data though this powerful and seamlessly integrated application.”
Bertrand Cressent, Traceparts product portfolio global manager, added: “A key component of our business model is to support leading CAD software partners like Onshape by delivering rich geometric content just a mouse-click away to all their users, globally.
“Providing Onshape users with instant access to TraceParts’ huge part library is a new great illustration of our 30-year ‘Product Content Everywhere’ commitment helping Engineers boost their design productivity.
“Our collaboration with Onshape brings a lot of additional marketing exposure to the 1,100 component suppliers already publishing their product data with TraceParts. This allows part vendors to get highly qualified sales leads by simply uploading their digital product information onto the TraceParts Publishing Network. They instantly benefit from TraceParts fantastic reach of over 29 million engineers and designers worldwide.”
TraceParts free 3D Design Library app for Onshape is available to users through the Onshape App Store.
