Rapid Launches 3D Model Catalog
Rapid launches a free CAD library of sheet metal parts on TraceParts.
Nashua, NH – October 24, 2016 – Rapid, one of the largest prototype manufacturers in the United States has launched a free CAD library on TraceParts. The parts catalog includes over 200 CAD files of sheet metal parts and features such as U Enclosures, Cutouts, Embossments, Punch Tooling and more.
TraceParts is the world’s leading digital media company for engineering. One of the services TraceParts offers is a CAD library. The library includes over 100 million parts available for download. Rapid joined TraceParts vendor library to offer engineers an alternative to creating from scratch standard sheet metal enclosures and tooled features. To use the service, engineers create an account on the TraceParts website. The customer then chooses the 3D CAD file they wish to use and then download the file. The process is frictionless.
James Jacobs states, “Rapid is always on a mission to expand our services and better serve our customers. By partnering with TraceParts we are able to offer product developers standard enclosures and common tooled features essential to their product, but not worth the design hours to create the part from scratch.”
