Autodesk Fusion 360 Now Includes TraceParts Engineering Catalogs

TraceParts has extended its long-lasting strategic partnership with Autodesk, announcing the immediate availability of its free 3D CAD library now seamlessly integrated within Autodesk Fusion 360.

Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D modeling, CAD, CAM, CAE, and PCB software platform for product design and manufacturing.

1,400+ TraceParts 3D catalogs featuring hundreds of millions of industrial components are now seamlessly integrated into Autodesk Fusion 360.

The benefits for Fusion 360 users

Through this out-of-the-box integration, Fusion 360 users can browse and search hundreds of millions of mechanical, electrical, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, and many other types of products. Once a product is chosen, designers configure product options, dynamically preview them in 3D, and insert native Fusion 360 3D models directly into their designs.

Metadata rich Bill of Materials (BoM) properties connect chosen components back to the manufacturer to streamline supply chains and ultimately save time when ordering those components.
