Earlier this year, Samtec and CADENAS PARTsolutions collaborated on an advanced interactive catalog of 3D CAD models. The new tool assists engineers in defining and specifying any of Samtec’s more than 1 trillion product models.
Samtec’s customers can dynamically configure, preview and download 2D/3D models in over 150 different formats. This adds speed, accuracy and flexibility to the connector selection and design process.
Reducing Sample Times from 24 Hours to 24 Seconds
Samtec’s Sudden Service® capabilities support global customers with the tools, products and services needed for the connector design process.
One key differentiator is Samtec’s ability to provide mechanical product samples within 24 hours or less. However, the process needed a 21st-century update.
Samtec began a 15-year digital transformation in the early 2000’s, creating 3D CAD models in-house for their clients. Over time that approach proved limited as the 3D CAD models were static and instantly outdated. Samtec could only support a few standard formats.
That’s where CADENAS PARTsolutions came in. They replaced Samtec’s entire 3D CAD model catalog in 9 months. Samtec’s CAD models are dynamically generated in real-time on their servers, and the 3D CAD models are instantly available for downloading.
How have engineers and customers responded to this new capability? Samtec consistently sees demand for roughly 1,000 3D CAD model downloads per day across the entire Samtec product portfolio.
