ANSI, ISO, JIS, DIN & Mil-Spec Standard Fasteners Available with Faceted Search
San Jose, CA, July 15, 2014. CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online B2B e-Commerce solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced its 3DModelSpace.com 3D CAD search engine and portal now include ANSI Metric & English, ISO, JIS, DIN & Mil-Spec standard fastener Catalogs containing free 3D & 2D CAD Models of 188600 parts.
“The industrial buying process has changed. Today engineers and buyers, like the rest of us, search online for what they need usually before talking to a supplier. They are also accustomed to an excellent user experience from sites such as Grainger®, McMaster-Carr® and Amazon®. Industrial suppliers need to adapt to the new buying process and match customer expectations,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “3DModelSpace.com is now showcasing CDS’s Catalog as a Service™ technology to offer advanced catalog and search for industrial suppliers and for these standard fasteners. When engineers need standard fastener models, the 3DModelSpace catalog now provides faceted, graphical and power grid search then download of 3D CAD models.”
“From our 2014 CAD download user survey, more that ¾ of engineers now think downloadable CAD models of parts are ‘essential, very important or important’ when selecting a supplier. The survey also indicates that ~50% of product CAD downloads result in at least one order and on average ~160 units are ordered. Industrial suppliers need to offer 3D CAD models of their parts on their own websites and syndicate them elsewhere on the internet. 3DModelSpace.com is a vital component both for syndication and for advertising.”
CDS enables growth through industrial B2B e-Commerce and strengthen customer loyalty for its clients through interactive online catalogs, configurators, 3D CAD & BIM model delivery, e-Commerce and 3DModelSpace.com.
3DModelSpace is a CAD model search engine that connects Engineers & CAD Designers with Industrial Companies that offer free online 3D CAD models. 3DModelSpace provides two unique search methods to access millions of downloadable free 3D CAD Models. First, it provides a specific keyword search resulting with a vertical “Google Like” display of supplier deep links pointing directly to the appropriate web pages on manufacturers’ and distributors’ web sites, which contain the CAD Models related to their search. Second, it provides a unified search experience of supplier CAD Models using CDS’ advanced Catalog as a Service™ technology, which includes faceted, graphical, and power grid search. The result is engineers finding the CAD Models they are looking for quickly and easily, allowing them to focus on designing and innovating new products instead of spending time and effort modeling parts they don't manufacturer. All industrial suppliers who offer free online models for CAD designers are eligible for inclusion in 3DModelSpace. For more information, visit www.3DModelSpace.com or call +1.408.550.8820.
