    OpenBuilds Parts for your projects!

    Solidworks 2014 OpenBuilds Parts Library
    Official OpenBuilds Part Models commissioned by OpenBuilds,LLC

    The goal when creating this library was to produce simple and accurate models. Samples of all parts were measured directly. PDF drawings of the machined parts are provided for reference.

    To use this library effectively, you should add it to your Design Library in Solidworks:

    Watch what happens when you drag and drop screws over the holes in a plate! They will snap into place automatically. When you release the mouse button, you can choose the screw length.

    "The drawings are no longer included because of concerns with people copying and selling Open Builds parts."

    That is BULLSHIT. Anybody capable of "counterfeiting" open source parts (how is that even possible btw???) is certainly capable of using the cad formats provided.

    All you've done is make things more difficult for us hobbyists.

    Are the PDF drawings no longer included in the files? I can't seem to find them. I also added the parts to the toolbox for easy use as stated but solidworks wont open the files from my hardrive... that could be an issue on my end though.

    Missing Reduction Plate Etc

      There was some hesitancy to include the reduction plate in the Parts Library since they didn't perform nearly as well as expected.

    Awesome work.

    I've found one problem though. When trying to import Linear Actuator End Mount into OnShape, the import fails with "The following 1 parts failed validation and could not be imported: 1 unnamed". I'd much appreciate if you could fix this, as I don't have a copy of SolidWorks.
    1. Rob Stehlik
      Author's Response
      Sorry for the late reply. I have no experience with OnShape, so I probably won't be much help. Does this occur with other parts as well? Can you import STEP or IGES files into OnShape?

    I successfully loaded the file into Solidworks 2016, however each time I select a component to add to the drawing, I continue to receive multiple errors stating "Could not load Solidworks DLL: " and gives multiple file names all ending in .dll after that warning message. Could you please let me know if that's an error on my part? The entire library loads correctly into Solidworks and appears in the design library at the right pane, but once a component is clicked and appears in the drawing pane, that's when the errors began to occur and the only way to stop them no matter what you click, is to "X" out of the drawing.

    This is almost perfect, but I'm having trouble seeing the M5 low profile 10mm screw. It's appearing invisible for some reason. Not sure if this is something stupid I'm doing in Solidworks or if it's an issue with the part itself.
    1. Rob Stehlik
      Author's Response
      I'm not sure what would be causing this. I was just recently using these screws in an assembly and they showed up fine. I have seen situations where you accidentally change a parts display properties in the feature manager, and it can be very disconcerting.
