)-- Now available to configure and download free from www.hypertronics.com are 3D models of popular connectors from Hypertronics, the world leading provider of high performance Interconnect solutions for the most demanding applications. 3D-Config is an online catalog with 3D models, 2D drawings and part configurator.
Hypertronics’ 3D-Config enables designers to view, configure or download parts in 3D using many of the industry-standard mechanical CAD programs, speeding and enhancing their designs and eliminating costly data manipulation and delays. Explains Peter Persico, Technical Support Supervisor at Hypertronics: “Having to model or redraw standard parts is time consuming and costly – plus there is an inherent risk of misrepresentation. Hypertronics has removed that process from the equation by making this latest innovation available to the market. Using 3D-Config, engineers and designers will easily be able to find and/or custom configure a connector, download it into their native CAD software, and check for form, fit and function immediately. The result is a massive time saving – and users can be 100% sure of its accuracy.”
To date, 3D-Config includes 3D models of Hypertronics’ KA, 2mm and VME64x series PCB connectors, and KS Series Docking Station/Portable Device Connectors. The company plans to include its full range of standard products shortly. Available formats include SolidWorks®, Pro/Engineer®, AutoCAD®, and Mechanical Desktop® to name only a few.
