SolidWorks Introduces 3D PartStream.NET ServiceLatest version gives component manufacturers a template-based tool for publishing online catalogs in six easy steps (January 18, 2002)
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their own product designs, significantly reducing the time and cost associated with finding parts and components from outdated paper-based catalogs and re-modeling them from scratch.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.
