SAMTEC, represented by Arrow Electronics , now has two types of 3D models for its micro and high speed interconnects available for download from Samtec.com.
Designers can choose between them based on the type of information and amount of detail needed in the model.
Both model types are acceptable for form, fit and function in most applications.
The newest Basic detail 3D models do not include inside body or pin details and are parts rather than assemblies. Therefore, these 3D models are smaller file sizes and will download more quickly.
Although there are fewer product series in this list to date, every part number within that series is available in all major 3D modeling software formats. These 3D models have the added feature of being able to be viewed on-line and rotated to show views from any desired perspective.
Our Full Detail 3D models including inside body and pin details are much larger files sizes.
The majority of all Samtec product series are available; however, not every part number variation for each series will have a model available.
These models can be downloaded in IGES, STEP, Parasolid and ACIS formats. If the needed model is not currently available, it will be developed at no charge by Samtec and requires approximately two to three weeks to be created.
Models are available in the following formats: SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, CATIA, Unigraphics, Mechanical Desktop, IGES, STEP, SAT (ACIS), VRML, STL, Parasolid, VDAFS and DWG/DXF.
