Saint-Romain, France, 24 October 2018 – TraceParts, a world-leading supplier of 3D digital content for engineering, consistently ensures that its CAD content platform embraces the latest technologies. The company’s proactive development strategy means that TraceParts is one of the first CAD content platforms to offer the new STEP AP242 output format.
STEP AP242 – ISO 10303 is a standard that has been endorsed by the International Organization for Standardization. This neutral format represents an open 3D data model that can be used to exchange product data between design offices and production departments.
This format allows designers, engineers and specifically aerospace and automotive industry professionals to download and incorporate 3D models directly into their design projects in the neutral STEP AP242 format.
We believe that this format plays an important role in industry 4.0, because it contains much more than just geometric data. It includes information about the product lifecycle, manufacturing process, assembly and mounting constraints, among other things. It is a real asset for all those engineers and designers using our platform, as well as parts suppliers publishing their product catalogs with our solutions due to the fact that its’ native-like properties retains all the product-related information,
explains Bertrand Cressent, Product Manager at TraceParts.
