SolidWorks Introduces 3D PartStream.NET Service

Latest version gives component manufacturers a template-based tool for publishing online catalogs in six easy steps (January 18, 2002)
SolidWorks Corp. today unveiled the latest version of its 3D PartStream.NET service, which lets component manufacturers publish 3D-enabled Web-based catalogs using an easy, step-by-step process. 3D PartStream.NET version 3.0 arrives out of the box and ready to use so manufacturers can create online catalogs integrated with 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models in days rather than months. 3D PartStream.NET allows customers to download 3D CAD models of manufacturers' products and instantly incorporate those models into their own product designs.

3D PartStream.NET's technology allows manufacturers to build 3D-powered catalogs for selling their products more effectively than with paper catalogs. With a 3D-powered catalog, customers can view products from all angles and configure models based on their specific requirements. Customers can then download models in a wide variety of formats for use in their own product designs, significantly reducing the time and cost associated with finding parts and components from outdated paper-based catalogs and re-modeling them from scratch. This capability ensures that customers "design in" (check compatibility and subsequently purchase) these parts and components, giving manufacturers the competitive advantage they need to win customer business.

Customers such as APW Zero Cases is harnessing that 3D online catalog development capability to increase its products' exposure. APW Zero Cases is a subsidiary of APW Ltd. (NYSE: APW) and a leader in producing aluminum enclosures such as carrying cases, equipment racks and aluminum casings used to protect electronic equipment outdoors. It is using 3D PartStream.NET to provide its customers with access to downloadable CAD models for its more than 100,000 different product variations.
