Partners Launch New 2D/3D CAD Library

CLEVELAND—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 25, 2006— Penton Media's Design Engineering group, anchored by Machine Design magazine, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with PARTsolutions(R), LLC, a leading provider of publishing solutions for 2D/3D digital parts catalogs, to launch the Machine Design CAD Library, a powerful, new resource for design engineers.

Located at http://www.machinedesign.com/cadlibrary and free to design engineers, the Machine Design CAD Library includes millions of configurable 2D and 3D CAD models of components and assemblies downloadable for easy use in new and existing designs. Unlike other digital parts catalogs, the Machine Design CAD Library models are in native CAD formats with no translation required resulting in the highest possible accuracy and data quality. PARTsolutions' relationships with the major CAD companies make it the only company with solutions that serve the entire market independent of the technology choice of suppliers and OEMs.

"Machine Design's new CAD Library provides an exciting, next-generation resource for designers and engineers taking advantage of the depth and immediacy of the Web to find solutions for their product development initiatives," said Machine Design Publisher John Petersen. "PARTsolutions is the perfect partner to help us continue bringing cutting-edge resources to complement our portfolio of industry-leading information products and services for the global design engineering community."

PARTsolutions CEO, Tim Thomas, added, "The opportunity to be partnered with Penton Media and a best-in-class team with the strongest industry readership is extraordinary. Part catalogs delivered in native formats have long been demanded by industry users and are now accessible in the Machine Design CAD Library. Component suppliers and their customers will all benefit."
