Let Your Design Imagination Loose!

Connector Geek

Engineering is a serious business, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun now and then!

Christmas 3D Tree Competition

TraceParts and Schneider Electric have just launched the 14th Annual Christmas Tree competition.  The rules are simple: create a virtual Christmas tree using 3D models that can be downloaded free of charge from the Schneider Electric 3D part library, available from  You can use whichever 3D CAD software you like (but we'd love you to try our own DesignSpark Mechanical).

TraceParts has been a DesignSpark partner since the website's launch over 10 years ago.  TraceParts is a world-leading digital engineering content company, delivering 3D models in over 60 different native CAD formats.  The entire DesignSpark 3D catalog is available on the TraceParts website, and TraceParts technology powers the 3D model integration on the RS website.

Schneider Electric is a major supplier to RS Components.  Specialists in a wide range of industrial control and energy technologies, there are more than 15,000 products available from RS Components.  With such a varied range of products available, there is sure to be a selection of 3D models that will spark your imagination!

Download your copy of DesignSpark Mechanical, visit the TraceParts blog to learn more about the conditions of entry, and get designing.  Your imagination might win you an early Christmas present!

Connector Geek is Dave in real life. After three decades in the industry, Dave still likes talking about connectors almost as much as being a Dad to his two kids. He still loves Lego too. And guitars.
