RS Components (RS) has recorded 300,000 downloads of 3D CAD models from the RS website. This milestone for the distributor has been achieved just over two years after it launched the 3D CAD programme to provide engineers with access to an extensive library of 3D models downloadable completely free-of-charge from the RS website.
The RS 3D catalogue now exceeds 30,000 models from more than 40 leading manufacturers, with new additions being progressively introduced. The models are available to download in all of the most common 3D CAD formats, accessible via the company’s 3D CAD microsite or through its ModelSource component library on DesignSpark, the RS online community for engineers.
“The rate at which engineers are using our web resources as their source for 3D models has really taken off, and in the past twelve months we have logged double the amount of downloads as in the previous year to reach this impressive figure,” said Mark Cundle, Head of Technical Marketing, RS Components. “Our data analysis shows that the uptake is truly global, evidence that engineers in virtually every country around the world are increasingly starting to trust and rely on RS for support with their designs.”
