Parker Instrumentation has added 3D models of its manifold, valve and tube fitting product lines to its website – supporting the rapid growth in usage of 3D CAD.
They are available as direct inserts into a wide range of CAD systems including AutoCAD, Catia, Inventor, Mechanical Desktop, Pro/ENGINEER, TopSolid, TurboCAD, Solid Edge and SolidWorks.
The 3D models are expected to be of particular benefit to equipment builders designing for space-sensitive applications. Included in this category are panel builders and skid builders – especially those producing equipment for offshore applications.
Here, Parker Instrumentation’s 3D models provide an easy means of visualising shapes and clearances, for human factor engineering purposes.
Downloadable 3D models – and 2D drawings – are available for most of Parker Instrumentation’s popular industrial tube fittings, instrumentation valves and manifolds, as well as its range of high-purity valves and fittings fabricated from PTFE/PFA for semiconductor and biopharm applications. High purity regulators and valves will be added to the service shortly.
Parts can be configured before download, typically using simple tick selection techniques.
