Traceparts has announced that its 3D library of suppliers and standard parts catalogues has been certified for the Autodesk Inventor 2012 3D mechanical design software.

The 3D library was certified through the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program.

Digital prototyping with the Autodesk Inventor software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualise and simulate how a product will work under real-world conditions before it is built, which is intended to help reduce cost and increase efficiency.

The 3D component library features more than 100 million 3D CAD models and 2D drawings, including both industry-standard parts as well as products from hundreds of manufacturers’ catalogues used by the tooling, machinery, aerospace and automotive industries.

Users can browse or search for products, configure product options, create dynamic 3D previews and insert native Inventor 3D product models directly into their designs together with their bill-of-materials attributes.

Jim Quanci, director of the Autodesk Developer Network, said: ‘Traceparts provides easy and quick access to millions of native-format Autodesk Inventor models of the parts our customers use every day.

‘So now, the Inventor Community can concentrate on designing and innovating new products instead of wasting time and effort modelling parts they don’t manufacture,’ he added.
