CDS CAD Model Search Engine included in PTC Creo™

Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers, today announced the inclusion of 3DModelSpace within PTC Creo™ 1.0. This provides designers with access to hundreds of thousands of downloadable 3D CAD models during their design process and from within their Creo CAD system.

3DModelSpace is the leading CAD Model Search Engine linking directly to manufacturers and distributors web pages that offer 3D CAD models. It provides vertical search specific to manufactured parts and deep links directly to appropriate parts on manufacturers and distributors web sites. The 3DModelSpace search engine also includes direct links to six Pro/LIBRARYACCESS™ Catalogs complete with CAD downloads for Creo and Creo Student Edition.

"Engineers search online for manufactured part content more than ever before," said Michael Campbell, DVP Creo Product Development, PTC. "With 3DModelSpace embedded within Creo, designers can search across manufacturers and go directly to specific parts of interest that have downloadable CAD models. The result is that they can focus on designing and innovating new products instead of spending time and effort modeling parts they don't manufacture."

“Within our long term partnership with PTC we are delighted to make www.3DModelSpace.comavailable from within Creo”, said John Major, CEO of Catalog Data Solutions. “The sourcing and buying process has changed and engineering designers now search for parts online. The 3DModelSpace site is the perfect place to search and be assured of finding a 3D CAD model.”
