With 354,000 new registered users, including 150,000 opt-in contacts, the TraceParts 3D content platform had an excellent year in 2022 

TraceParts, one of the world’s leading CAD content providers, has a very large database of engineers and designers that is constantly growing. Today has more than 4,9 million users and is rapidly approaching the 5-million-member mark. An important milestone that should be reached in a few weeks.  

Last year, more than 354,000 new contacts registered on the platform. Among them, there are 150,000 opt-in contacts that can be targeted thanks to TraceParts’ digital marketing solutions. 

What is an opt-in contact? 

Opt-in, or previous consent, is one of the main principles of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). An opt-in contact is a contact who has given explicit consent to receive communications, including marketing communications. In practice, this means that you, part manufacturers and distributors, computer hardware vendors, CAx software vendors, 3D printing, rapid prototyping, and 3D scanner professionals, can communicate directly with more than 950,000 contacts because they have given their consent when they registered on the TraceParts platform. Among them, 150,000 new opt-in contacts have joined the database in 2022.
