RS Components make 3D CAD models available in SpaceClaim format to enable direct modelling for faster design

Users of SpaceClaim intuitive 3D modelling tools given access to latest electronic component technologies

OXFORD, England — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 21, 2011RS Components (RS) the world’s largest high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products and the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), announces that its 3D CAD product models are now available in SpaceClaim format. SpaceClaim empowers engineers and industrial designers to be more creative and deliver products to market faster without the specialist training and complexity associated with traditional CAD tools.

Throughout the product development cycle, SpaceClaim’s direct modelling methodology, which has been described as being similar to clay modelling on a computer, makes it possible for engineers to easily explore their ideas and solve problems in 3D. They can re-use and quickly edit concept models from any CAD system, and simplify models for analysis in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional CAD based on complex parametric modelling. SpaceClaim’s simplicity means that non-CAD specialists can contribute at the early stages of product development, perhaps with input from sales, marketing and production departments. The addition of RS’ 3D model library will give SpaceClaim users access to the latest electronic component technologies in a familiar and fully verified format.

Commenting for RS Components, Mark Cundle, technical marketing manager, said: “SpaceClaim is unique in its ability to involve many disciplines within a business in the product design process. By doing so early in the design cycle, it eliminates a lot of the time-consuming rework associated with traditional processes and enables organisations to tap into creative contributions from a variety of individuals from diverse disciplines. It’s an extension of the RS promise to make it very easy for all contributors to the design process to find, design-in and buy electronic components.”
