Freebies or paid? For freebies you can check in at the CAD Block Exchange Network. I'm positive that you can buy 3D libraries of nuts, bolts and screws. We talking Imperial or Metric?

what software are you using? mechanical desktop and inventor both have thousands of screws/nuts/bolts built into their content centers.

Bolts: 60 seconds if you include the helical threads.:D

Try this website for a variety of 3D parts including bolts. Note that you have to click on the 3D Manufacturers tab.

For bolts, nuts and washers I suggest looking at a company called Fastenal. Companies are listed in alphabetical order. I hope you find this useful. Wish you had replied with more detail however.

i have also used the thomas register.net for cad files of bolts/nuts. although importing things like this may not always give you the best format to work with.

It's always best, whenever possible, to create your own models. The free stuff you find online is not always the best quality. It will do in a pinch, but as the saying goes, "if you want something done right, do it yourself." :wink:

using punch via cad. very basic i think but it does everything i need except this, i have a hard time doing the threads. i can use any cad format as an input, just needed a little help finding the drawings.

 

thanks.

Just wondering how you would do the helical threads so quickly? be great if you've got time to quickly explain the command for that :?
