TraceParts experiences a sharp increase in the number of design professionals registered to its online CAD platform in 2016


Saint-Romain, France, May 25, 2016 – TraceParts, a global vendor of 3D marketing solutions, has announced a sharp increase of 25% in less than 2 years in the amount of user registrations to its online CAD delivery platform.


The TraceParts platform hosts hundreds of million of supplier-certified CAD data in the cloud and offers free and simple download services for 2D/3D CAD files in the most popular native formats of products ranging from standard fasteners to electronic or mechanical components, such as connectors or linear motion modules.
With the number of CAD downloads consistently increasing by 20% year on year to reach 60 Million downloads last year, the TraceParts CAD community now counts just over 2.5 Million registered users on its online platform. This substantial increase confirms the growing appetite among engineers and design professionals for downloading 2D/3D CAD files from a trusted source.


Since the launch of our web platform in 2001, we have really proven that our business model to offer ‘Product Content Everywhere’ really worked for the global design community. From our online presence, our mobile app and through the TraceParts catalog distribution network, design engineers have multiple entries to a wealth of technical data on industrial parts and the possibility of freely downloading the CAD models chosen for their design projects.


With over 2.5 Million currently registered users on our platform, parts vendors publishing their 3D catalog with TraceParts are also experiencing a substantial increase in the number of new sales leads generated by their product data

added Bertrand Cressent, Product Manager at TraceParts.
