This new feature of the online catalog provides a pop-up 3D viewer that allows the visitor to see different views of the selected product, rotate the model to any viewing angle and zoom in to view detail. Models can be downloaded and saved for use in 3D CAD systems for inclusion in panel designs, process loop and system designs.
Compatible with multiple systems
The 3D files are compatible for many popular CAD systems including Pro/ENGINEER, Autodesk Inventor, SOLIDWORKS, Parasolid, AutoCAD, Catia, IGES, Anvil, CADKey, IronCAD, Mechanical Desktop, ACIS, SDRC I-DEAS, and Unigraphics in 3D formats .IGS, .NEU, .PDF, .SAT, .STP, .X_T, and 2D formats .DWG and .DXF. Products that feature a 3D CAD model are identified with a “3D View” icon, and a download button is available on each product page.
Dropping standard product models into a CAD design streamlines the engineering design process, makes it easier to source products for purchasing, simplifies installation and maintenance, and can shorten lead times for stocking spare products. Engineering Director Bob Myles commented that “The 3D CAD models will make it much easier for our customers to integrate Moore Industries products into their system designs by reducing fabrication time and shortening the overall engineering timeline”.
