Autodesk and PARTsolutions launch online parts database


Autodesk Inc. has unveiled the Autodesk Manufacturing Supplier Content Center , an online portal resource that will provide catalogs of models and parts directly to user desktops of Autodesk Inventor software. The Manufacturing Supplier Content Center is linked to content through strategic relationships with PARTsolutions, a provider of systems for the management of standard, commercial, and proprietary parts. The portal contains information from over 100 leading manufacturing component providers and will continue to grow with new catalog offerings from partner- and manufacturer-developed content.

Autodesk’s Manufacturing Supplier Content Center enables users to select from millions of 2D and 3D engineering models and place them directly into Autodesk Inventor designs.

The Center also will enable Autodesk Inventor users to eliminate many manual, error-prone, and time-consuming steps in the product design process. Commercially available components can be integrated into the Autodesk Inventor Content Center and Autodesk Inventor designs, providing access to supplier part numbers, bill-of-material parameters and geometry. Engineers’ ability to access this content creates tremendous efficiencies by helping assure that accurate, orderable components are woven into designs from the beginning, freeing up users to focus on bringing their products to market faster.
