TraceParts has organized catalogs from major manufacturers of standard parts into master collections on Google 3D Warehouse, each of them containing one native SketchUp model for each product family. Users can either directly download the model into SketchUp 5 or 6, or jump to the same product family on TraceParts Online CAD Library (www.tracepartsonline.net) to select another product configuration and download the corresponding model in SketchUp format or any of the many other CAD formats available.
“As an innovative supplier of 3D Engineering Content we always help the parts vendors to maximize their catalog exposure. We do believe that being the first Supplier Parts Library to be visible on Google 3D Warehouse is something that will directly benefit the supplier”, says Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts. “We’ve reached a key milestone in our global offerings for 3D marketing: joining TraceParts’ fast growing community as a parts manufacturer now also means joining the Google SketchUp community. That makes a lot of sense when it comes to being more visible on the Internet!”.
All TraceParts collections and models available on Google 3D Warehouse are easily and quickly searchable thanks to the rich metadata published together with the 3D model itself, including the part description, the part reference and the product categories in which it is classified. Those categories include fasteners, bearings, shaft and couplings, seals, springs, gears, flexible drives and transmissions, support, indexing and locating elements, linear motion systems, flanges, reducers, elbows, valves, pneumatic and hydraulic fittings, actuators and cylinders, profiles, mold and die components, sensors, connectors, and more.
As a critical and unique resource for every mechanical designer in the tooling, machinery, aerospace, automotive industries and virtually any industry which uses purchased parts, TraceParts enlarges the scope of use of Google SketchUp to the mechanical and manufacturing CAD communities.
SketchUp users are now just a mouse click away from more than 100 millions of standard parts coming from leading suppliers: Asco/Joucomatic, Assfalg, Atlanta, Bosch Rexroth, Boutet, Burster, Cepex, Chambrelan, Contrinex, CSR, Dirak, Drumag, Elitec, Enzfelder, Euchner, Expert, Festo, Ganter, Genustech, Gerwah, GMT, Halder, Hervieu, HP Systems, Hydropa, IFM, Igus, INA/FAG, Item, ITV, Kabelschlepp, Kinetic, Knörzer, Legrand, Legris, L’Etoile, Mädler, Mayr, Mecalectro, Misumi, Norelem, Norgren, Normydro, Nozag, Pinet, Progressus, Quiri, Rabourdin, Rodriguez, Rohde, Römheld, Rötelmann, Rud, Sapelem, Schmalz, Schmersal, Siam-Ringspann, Sick, SNR, Socafluid, Somex, Stauffenberg, Ströter, Stüwe, Suhner, Sumer, Supratec, Telemecanique, Trelleborg, Vanel, Wefapress, Winkel, Zimm and more.
