Cad Communities Partner with 3D Digital Parts Site

Santa Fe, NM, and Saint Romain, France, April 14, 2009: ConnectPress, Ltd., in partnership with TraceParts, announces today the launch within the ConnectPress (CP) CAD Communities of a co-branded, 3D CAD parts website for each of the CP Communities. The vertical search engine sites will be utilized by engineering designers when specifying parts for their designs. With traffic on the native site,, already in excess of 5 million page views each month, the two companies believe access to the new website will complement the ConnectPress CAD Communities and provide industrial parts manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors with a targeted venue to educate and promote their parts to designers.

“With nearly 100,000 worldwide suppliers seeking the attention of CAD Designers, this new website is an incredible, new, online marketing tool for industrial suppliers,” says Dan Raker, President of ConnectPress. “Over 90% of designers and engineers now use the Internet to locate and select components for their new designs. Being able to educate and promote directly to these decision-makers during their actual selection process, even as they work within their personal CAD systems, is a novel and new online marketing opportunity.”

”TraceParts catalogs are a fantastic productivity tool for all CAD engineers and we strongly believe this new publishing partnership with ConnectPress will strengthen our leading position in digital engineering 3D content”, explains Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts. ”Our permanent challenge is to maximize the marketing exposure of our hundreds of suppliers and standard 3D catalogs, and these vertical CAD parts libraries will be of great help to reach this goal.”

In conjunction with the 300,000+ member ConnectPress CAD Communities, TraceParts now offers suppliers comprehensive promotion opportunities including Web 2.0 advertising utilities such as targeted display ads linked to micro-sites, behavior-based direct marketing, pay-for-performance pricing, and community sponsorship opportunities which foster brand loyalty and support industry research and development.
