Electronics and related mechanical component distributor RS Components said more than one million 3D models have now been downloaded via its extensive DesignSpark 3D model catalogue.
RS Components' 3D Model catalogue offers access to 100+ million 3D models, available via the TraceParts 3D library. Access to all of the 3D models was integrated into version 2.0 of DesignSpark Mechanical.
“The millionth download is a major milestone for the RS 3D model programme, which has been achieved by working closely with world-leading 3D content company TraceParts, and with tremendous support from major global component suppliers such as Phoenix Contact, Schneider and Molex,” said Glenn Jarrett, Global Head of Product Marketing at RS.
"Being the exclusive supplier of RS for 3D models is a great honour for TraceParts. For over 20 years, TraceParts has been providing best-in-class modelling, cloud-hosting and publishing services for CAD catalogues to hundreds of manufacturers and distributors, but RS is definitely one of the most marketing-mature and service-driven part vendors we have ever met. They have had a unique and pioneering approach from as early as 2010 when it came to seamlessly integrating TraceParts 3D viewing and multi-CAD download capabilities within their e-commerce product pages. We have learnt a lot from RS during these past five years and we are looking forward to helping them launch many more 3D-marketing services in the future,” commented Gabriel Guigue, TraceParts Managing Director.
The 3D models are available for free download in the RS 3D catalogue, available via DesignSpark and www.rs-online.com.
