RS Components has proved the popularity of its free online design resources by reaching impressive milestones for the number of user downloads via the RS website and from DesignSpark.com.
The 3D CAD model programme has attained the highest download figure for a single online resource available from RS, with a total of more than 500 000 model downloads from the RS website since the programme’s launch in 2010.
This figure represents a rise of almost 50% since the beginning of last year, and has been hastened by the recent release of DesignSpark Mechanical, the free, intuitive 3D solid modelling tool co-developed by RS and SpaceClaim. The RS 3D model programme now offers access to more than 35 000 3D models from over 60 leading manufacturers in all of the most common 3D CAD formats.
DesignSpark Mechanical logged 100 000 downloads within the first two months since it was launched in September last year. Half of these downloads were recorded after just two weeks of the tool’s availability – statistics that show the keen interest in affordable, easy-to-use 3D design software.
With a total of 100 000 downloads in the first 12 months of availability, the company’s extensive ModelSource component library of PCB schematics and footprints is also a major success for RS, further demonstrating the high value placed by engineers on free, downloadable time- and cost-saving resources.
