Need Help finding CAD models of COTS Parts

Hello,

I am currently in the midst of creating a render of my team's 2012 Robot. As I thought I was done, I noticed that many of my COTS parts that I have downloaded from their respective vendors have no color associated with them.

For example, the jag models that I have on our robot in Solidworks are currently grey. I was wondering if there were any models on the internet that have the full details (Color/Texture, etc..)

Thanks!

Adam Garcia

Re: Need Help finding CAD models of COTS Parts

Generally the CAD models that you will get from vendors are drawn simply to show the dimensions of the product, and therefor do not have any textures. There may be user generated models out there that are more complete.
I suggest browsing pages similar to grabcad.com and the CAD databases that some teams have on their websites.

Google is your friend

Re: Need Help finding CAD models of COTS Parts

I dug through my files and noticed that most everything I use comes from http://www.firstcadlibrary.com/
It is outdated, so hopefully there are no compatibility issues.

If you want something in particular, send me a PM and I will see if I have already have one.

Good luck and have an amazing summer
