Saint-Romain, France; January 13, 2016 – TracePartsOnline.net, the platform that TraceParts created in 2001 to provide free access to CAD models and technical specifications of hundreds of millions of industrial parts, has announced that its engineering community has grown by 20% to reach nearly 2.4 million registered designers.


With CAD shaving valuable time off the design process and shortening new product development cycles, TraceParts delivered an array of innovative solutions in 2015 to give users of the engineering platform an enhanced experience, with over 60 million CAD files downloaded. All the improvements made in 2015 helped generate over 5,000 new leads for every single catalog published on the TraceParts platform.
