<a href=’http://www.CADRegister.com’>CADRegister.com</a>, an online resource provided by Thomas Register, is now accessible from within PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire product design and development software.

The relationship between the two companies gives product designers access to millions of CADRegister’s 2D and 3D computer-aided design drawings and models, helping them increase the speed of product development.

The next generation portal will provide product designers with native Pro/ENGINEER models based on PTC’s Granite One interoperability kernel. To support this initiative, Thomas Register has licensed Granite from PTC.

The portal itself features a seamless drag and drop integration, leveraging the Web services supported by PTC’s Wildfire. It also helps users reduce the amount of time they spend searching for standard component data or creating standard components for their product models.

The component portal can be found on the PTC ‘Catalog Directory’ at the <a href=’http://catalogs.ptc.com’>PTC Catalog Directory</a> or through Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.
