    Default Insert a CAD Drawing From a Library of Objects

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a Library out there (Free), where I could find a rendition of a robot arm mechanism (something simple) not metric. Where I could insert into my drawing. Similar to inserting a drawing of Visio Library into a file? Or similar to inserting art into a Word document?
    Thanks

    Your question is a bit like can every body please do all the googling for me.

    Generally a google of say "robot parts + Autocad" should reveal something.

    I believe they call what you are looking for a.........................wait for it..............................BLOCK.

    There are many websites that have free blocks available for downloading. CADforum (the Czech website) is one.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    Manufacturers websites will sometimes have files for downloading for free. If not you can sometimes contact them and get one, especially if it's a company you do business with.

    looks like the Kuka website has robotic arm drawings available to download. probably loads of other types too.

    here's one chosen at random
