ThomasNet’s Clients’ CAD Models Now Available to Users of Siemens’ NX Software

Thomas Industrial Network Joins Siemens Solutions Partner Program; Provides New Seamless Access to 2D/3D CAD Models to NX Users

NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 12, 2013 — Thomas Industrial Network, a new Siemens Software & Technology Partner, today announced the availability of a Direct Insert Driver for NX™ software, Siemens PLM Software’s fully integrated computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) solution. This tool provides NX users with seamless access to models from Thomas’ 2D/3D WebCAD clients and directly inserts 3D CAD data and related information into NX.

ThomasNet’s 2D/3D WebCAD Publishing Technology, powered by the company’s Navigator Platform, enables part/component suppliers to publish their detailed product information in a file format that is compatible with all major CAD systems. Design engineers find parts and products online to specify into their designs and download models and drawings directly, which helps save time and eliminate errors.

Models include front-to-back, top-to-bottom and side-to-side views, complete with dimensional information to help engineers ensure that the parts will fit correctly. The models and drawings also include the full bill of materials for use by purchasing departments.

“We’re delighted to provide this technology enhancement to our clients and open up the potential for new business from engineers using Siemens’ NX software,” said Peter Mooney, Product Director of Enterprise Solutions at Thomas Industrial Network.

“We are pleased that Thomas Industrial Network has joined the Siemens Solution Partner Program as a Software & Technology Partner. This technology gives NX users access to Thomas’ broad ranges of 3D CAD models for use in designs,” said Bill Boswell, Senior Director of Partner Strategy, Siemens PLM Software.
