PARTsolutions for KeyCreator Becomes as Easy as the Push of a Button
MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 27 // -- Kubotek(R) USA, creators of geometry-based CAD software, today announced that the company has entered into a premier partnership with PARTsolutions(R) LLC, a leading provider of 3D digital catalog publishing and enterprise parts management solutions. As result of the partnership, users of Kubotek USA's KeyCreator(R) software are now able to select and configure industry standard and supplier-specific parts from PARTsolutions' extensive library, and place those parts directly into KeyCreator designs.
A seamless interface has been built between KeyCreator 3D CAD design software and PARTsolutions' industry standard and digital parts system. The companies worked closely to ensure the KeyCreator software was able to present a highly accurate and detailed rendering of the PARTsolutions components, indistinguishable from manually created components. Direct support of PARTsolutions digital parts catalogs will save Kubotek USA's mechanical CAD customers time and ensure design accuracy when standard parts are being integrated into a design.
"The ability to quickly find, configure and import specific manufacturers' parts and reuse those components in CAD designs can save product developers significant time and money," said Rob Zesch, president of PARTsolutions. "Direct access to the PARTsolutions digital catalogs from KeyCreator software offers users an avenue into the most up-to-date database of components available from a wide range of manufacturers."
Kubotek USA expects its KeyCreator software customers to quickly gain value from the PARTsolutions technology. Use of part referenced assemblies, especially for parts recurring throughout a design, lowers the memory footprint of the design, thereby speeding modeling operations. Taking advantage of part references also allows users to save time and reduce errors when design modifications require a change to parts used repeatedly throughout the design. As a result, engineers designing assemblies with a large number of supplier components will find the integrated PARTsolutions catalog an ideal solution.
"Our one button integration with PARTsolutions delivers accurate and up- to-date supplier content directly to the KeyCreator user as the data is needed," explained Bob Bean, executive vice president of Kubotek USA. "With the explosion of fragmented data sources scattered across the Internet, locating the right parts is becoming more and more time consuming. Together, Kubotek USA and PARTsolutions are streamlining access and management of part libraries."
Access to PARTsolutions for KeyCreator parts libraries is currently available in Kubotek USA's recently released KeyCreator Version 6.3. PARTsolutions for KeyCreator will be available to purchase from select Kubotek USA resellers.
PARTsolutions(R) LLC, based in Cincinnati, Ohio and CADENAS GmbH of Augsburg, Germany, developer of PARTsolutions technology, are the leading providers of solutions for the management of standard and commercial parts as well as cross-media, catalog publishing solutions for Internet, CD and printed catalogs. Founded in 1992, PARTsolutions is the largest supplier of 3D digital product catalogs in the world and now has over 300 2D and 3D catalogs available in the native formats of virtually all CAD systems available to engineers worldwide.
