good on you for getting this going! I will dig up some older stuff and put it up. 3D support would be cool, but the size will just get out of control to quickly. IMO if you want to share 3D, zip it into a complete package or export a generic file(STEP or IGES) and save it to your Dropbox, or similar hosting site. Do not use STL for cad purposes, its a faceted model used for 3D printers, it makes a lot of approximations and is useless when dealing with even remotly tight tolerances.
from a wiki
Code:
An STL file describes a raw unstructured triangulated surface by the unit normal and vertices (ordered by the right-hand rule) of the triangles using a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. STL coordinates must be positive numbers, there is no scale information, and the units are arbitrary.[
Also I'm not sure about hosting .ipt? Isnt that the proprietary Inventor part extension? IMO stick to pdf, dxf, and dwg

Don't know about the .ipt.. those were just the "File Types" that Philip allowed.. so I didn't want to complicate it by being picky. I was just happy to get anything.

On a side note.. I'd just like to caution everyone not to post "Copyrighted" material. We don't want to have this Sharing ability lost due to Copyright Infringement.

I myself only plan to post stuff that I've personally drawn.. recommend others do the same.

Good plan, a lot of file sharing sites have a simple rule and it works pretty good:

If you did not draw it, do not post it.

It will keep this thread open and the mods and admins from spending extra time and resources that could be better spent other places.

There are active folks and software out their that look for infringed files.

Disney, Harley Davidson and John Deere have special departments for this. MOST government logos and seals are owned by us (the public) so those are fine usually.


Like the winch plate file Eddie! Thanks.

I don't have the measurements with me.. but basically, you just bend at the center of those little divots... right where the red lines are in the pic below..

OK I knew the radius was for forming relief for some reason I was thinking the sides would fold down as well to tie into more of the frame. My bad. Thanks for the great dxf files also. This will save me a lot of time on a rear bumper.

I'm currently working on trying to snag some stuff and add some stuff. Than being said, I'm not able to use the text version. I'm 99% positive it's user error and 1 % sure it's because im using Autocad on a Mac. Regardless, can I get some insight on how to open up these dxf.text files in autocad?

That being said, here are some things i've created.

NVM I figured it out.

For those of that just don't know what your doing.

Download the file
if it goes into dxf.txt then open info
then on the title, just delete the .txt.
it will ask if you want to change your extension,
click yes.

AutoCad+Mac=

Could be the way it is imported too. Can you explain what the file structure is when you first download?

ps, I just downloaded via firefox and here is a copy/paste of it:

hook holder.DXF

What browser are you using? Firefox will give you a little more control of how files are imported by keeping them intact. Save the file first, don't click open from the browser dialog, that might eliminate the txt addition.

Post your findings if you can. I am on a Mac right now and our office has six Macs total. I'm the only oddball in the office because of the CNC plasma cutter (Windows XP)
