DesignSuite is an Internet-based library database of 3D models and detailed specifications of more than 100,000 mechanical components that engineers can use in product design. The first product to be developed by InPart Inc., DesignSuite reportedly lets engineers find component data and download a 3D model of gears, motors, and other parts to their own CAD systems.
