WIN-Verlag and TraceParts Form Media Partnership

The AUTOCAD & Inventor magazine is exclusively attractive to the target groups of Autodesk users and decision-makers. Apart from technical features about Autodesk solutions, the AUTOCAD & Inventor magazine also provides highly technical reports about applications for Autodesk solutions, add-on software for designers, hardware and peripherals, as well as about components from the drive technology, automation, and fluid, connection and electrical technology sectors, and also about materials.


The DIGITAL ENGINEERING magazine is a leading technical publication in the design and engineering sector. It reports on all the key aspects that are important in the process of fully integrated product development. The focus is on solutions and strategies promoting high-performance engineering, as well as on innovations from the fields of drive technology, automation, e-technology, fluid technology, connection technology and design components, and also on materials.


The TraceParts 3D component library is among the most extensive in the world. It contains more than 100 million 3D CAD models and 2D drawings of standard parts from hundreds of component manufacturers that are used in the tool making, engineering, aviation and automotive industries.


Online readers of both magazines can now access the extensive library of purchased and standard parts from TracePartsOnline.net directly via the magazine websites www.autocad-magazin.dewww.inventor-magazin.deand www.digital-engineering-magazin.de.


Users can navigate intuitively through the library or carry out a specific search, configure components, look at dynamic previews and insert both neutral formats and native AutoCAD and Inventor 3D models directly into their design along with the relevant parts list information.

“We very much welcome the opportunity for close cooperation with the well-known magazines published by WIN-Verlag,” remarks Christian Baumgärtner, TraceParts GmbH Managing Director. “The integrated TraceParts library offers WIN-Verlag’s professional readership an additional service, while increasing the attention focused on our catalogs under the slogan ‘Product Content Everywhere’. Users can remain in their own technical environment when accessing TraceParts directly and do not require any additional registration to use TraceParts.”

“Following the relaunch of our websites in 2011, the cooperation with TraceParts has brought us a great deal closer to our goal of offering visitors to our websites additional services. This makes TraceParts an ideal partner for us,” says Bernd Heilmeier, Publishing manager at WIN-Verlag.
