TraceParts as a company are famous for, amongst other good things, hosting a huge library of 3D models spanning across a massive range of industry relevant parts.

This partnership is well established. RS and TraceParts have been working closely together for some years now as TraceParts have been responsible for hosting 3D models for access through the RS Online catalogue.




In February this year RS exceeded 300,000 3D model downloads through this link. This number has now topped 450,000 and is growing at around 5% per month! Clearly 3D models are forming a crucial part of the design process for more and more businesses.


TraceParts was formed in 1989 and has gone on to prove itself as a reliable and professional organisation supporting CAD users worldwide with their library service. They are part of the global Trace Software group.

RS Components are proud of the partnership with TraceParts and of all the positive outcomes this generates. Here’s to what the future may hold!
