Take the commands and pilot the A380 Airbus jet in 3D, thanks to TraceParts and the (3D)² magazine!

The First 3D Newsletter, now starring TraceParts

Dedicated to TraceParts and more globally to the Parts Libraries, the 6th issue of the free 3D PDF newsletter allows everyone to manipulate with Adobe Reader a simplified model of the world largest commercial airplane, and one animated assembly of pneumatic fittings from Legris.


The 6th issue of the (3D)2 magazine (to be read as “3D square”), the first free newsletter about 3D … in 3D, is focusing this month on the TraceParts company.


TraceParts offers downloadable 3D models of standard parts to all the CAD users in the world, featuring 100+ million CAD drawings compatible with all the leading formats and enabling mechanical engineers to boost their productivity when designing equipments (machinery, tooling, …).


Parts manufacturers and distributors can include their products in TraceParts CAD Library to get them published to 600,000 potential buyers, especially from the design, production and maintenance departments.


Additionally to the A380 air plane, the 6th issue of (3D)2 magazine also contains two other 3D models to manipulate and animate: an assembly of LEGRIS components for industrial fluids and an AIRBUS tooling designed with TraceParts components.
