Just wondering if anyone has seen any pre drawn cnc parts like ball screws, bearing supports motors mounts ect ect or seen them on net any were to save a lot of time when drawing stuff up? I managed to find some hiwin rails on grabcad but that's about it, there doesn't seam to be a hole lot of fusion stuff but plenty of solid works.

if not perhaps we could start a library of parts on here?

The import function works brilliantly in my experience and will accept most common formats.

Grabcad have lots of parts and you can happily download e.g. a solidworks assembly and import into fusion.

The manufacturers also sometimes have 3d models of the parts/components in question available to download.

ok thanks I will have to look in to how to import other files my fusion skills are still rather basic and not got to that stage yet, i had a paly before but could figure it out properly so you could edit them, i think i was importing them as a stl.

grabcad, traceparts and hiwin.de are where I get my stuff from. Download as IGES or STEP and then upload them to Fusion. The A360 platform will convert it to a readable fusion format and then you drag them in to the assembly you want.

Getting things to line up in fusion is a different issue.
