Leading distributor of electronic components, automation and measure technology, Distrelec, has partnered with TraceParts to embed 3D Models onto their website.  Responding to the changing shape of the components marketplace, Distrelec has recognised the importance of providing product information in helping their customers’ design process. By introducing enhanced product content, which includes in-depth product data, 3D models and PCB layouts, Distrelec is taking component distribution to a new level.
3D modelling is a key part of modern design.  The power of the latest CAD (Computer Aided Design) software systems has placed advanced design functionality into the hands of companies of all sizes. The use of readily-available 3D CAD models saves design engineers time. 
In the past, an engineer might spend hours remodelling an existing part for a new design.  The ability to download a 3D model in the electronic format of their choice saves on average 2.7 hours, thereby making engineers more responsive and removing inaccuracies associated with incorrect modelling.
Distrelec’s Head of Data Kevin Saynor is excited by the opportunity to engage with engineering customers. “By providing 3D CAD models, we can save our customers a huge amount of time and be their partner during the design-in phase.”
Distrelec has integrated this enhanced product content into their e-commerce platform, thereby making product choices easier and quicker for customers.  The range represented by 3D models covers over 24, 000 products and will continue to grow, and includes products from Distrelec’s own brand, RND.

By introducing 3D models onto their website, Distrelec are reinforcing their commitment to providing the customer with the most comprehensive choice, backed up with technical credibility and expertise.
