Amberg – Germany, September 8, 2009 – T-Flex Parametric and TraceParts today announced the availability of the native T-Flex format in the TraceParts CAD Parts Library. T-Flex users now have direct online access to the extensive models of the purchased and standard parts from leading manufacturers.
In addition to the existing advantageous features of the T-Flex CAD version 11, T-Flex users have another direct and immediate benefit from the customer-oriented partnership with TraceParts. It means that designers in machinery, mechanical systems and mold construction will be able to save time that was previously wasted on manufacturer inquiries about CAD models or on re-drawing by themselves the required components for the integration into their own designs. Additionally, the search engine on TraceParts enables a quick and easy search for the desired purchased and standard parts. The data can be loaded in the native T-Flex format directly via www.tracepartsonline.net/ws/t-flex.
“We are pleased about the partnership with T-Flex”, said Christian Baumgärtner, TraceParts GmbH Managing Director. “T-Flex offers a very good price-performance ratio. This way the parts suppliers available as TraceParts catalogs can achieve an additional visibility while the T-Flex users profit from the time savings.”
The distributor for Germany, HEPS (www.heps.de) comments: “This is another step in the direction of optimized efficiency in design. The reliable and easy-to-use interface of TraceParts and the direct import into the native T-Flex format was the right decision for us! It’s a win-win situation for TraceParts, for T-Flex, the suppliers, and above all for our customers. It’s simply a good partnership.”
T-Flex CAD has been improved continuously since 1978. This is a combined 2D and 3D CAD system for history-based, mechanical design (MCAD) in machine, systems and mold construction with an integrated open API.
The 3D editor offers all of the customary functions such as individual and multiple parts elements, assemblies and welds, metals and tubes, solids, rule-based and free-form surfaces, table and database control, associated 2D drafting according to different norms including cutaway and detail views, as well as automatic parts lists.
However, the 2D section is not simply subordinate to the modeler but comprises its own complete CAD system that can be used to fabricate standardized parametric (!) drawings, assembly drawings and even 2D assemblies. Of particular note is the seamless transition to the optional CAM module, the analysis module (FEA) and the Dynamic Analysis module.
