Downloads

Here are the files you can download for free. Currently there are three different types of files. First format is the SolidWorks E-drawings. This file format will allow anybody to open the files no matter what software you have installed. E-drawings is the most user friendly format since you don't have to have any special 3-D modeling (CAD) software to look at the files. The second format is the solid model file in *.igs format. You must have some sort of 3-D modeling (CAD) software to open this file format. If you are planning on doing the machining I have, you will need the *.igs file. But if you just want to open the file to look at it, you can download the E-drawing. And the last type of files you can download are the blueprints. I don't make blueprints of the solid models I make. So if you need a dimension while working on your project, you will have to reference the model. Later on, I hope to make available other files dealing with my projects...including sketches, setup sheets, programs, etc. Tim at dumpsterCNC made the 1911 solidmodel *.iges file. Andy at [email protected] made the VZ58 *.iges file.

My files are free to download, and if you share these files they must remain free!

Download instructions

SolidWorks E-drawings: Select the file you wish to download, click Save. To open the file, simply double click the *.exe file.

Solid Model *.igs File: Select the file you wish to download, click Save. Use your 3-D modeling (CAD) software to open to file after you unzip it.

SolidWorks E-drawings

The files below are complete solid models of the AR15/M16 and the 1911 firearms. I made the A2 style AR15 model, and Tom [email protected] made the A1 style AR15 as well as the 1911 model. You can download other files Tom has made here. The files below are for visual reference only.

I have spent many hours creating these solidmodel files. If you find these files useful and you want to show your support for my website, you can make a donation. All donations will be directed towards keeping this website going and also towards new projects. After every project I complete, I'll upload the files here. So if you want to show your support for this website and to keep these file FREE, you can send a donation through the PayPal link below.



Summary:
This blog post details how to import solid bodies into Blender from NX. As always there are many different ways to skin a cat, but I was only able to find particular combination of files types and tools to maintain solid body definition after the import into Blender. The assembly model I wanted to import from NX had over 50 different bodies and over 500 surfaces. Even trying to select all of the surfaces associated with a body and creating a group or linking them would be impossibly tedious and wasteful. Hopefully this information will save you time and effort as well!
Steps:
I'm going to use this part with two bodies, a cube with a square cutout and a cylinder, as an example and walk through the process.
Free Parasolid Models

1. Export the model from NX. I'm using NX7.5. File -> Export -> Parasolid
Parasolid model part file
2. A new Export Parasolid dialog will pop up. Select the desired bodies to export or Ctrl+A for all bodies. The desired bodies should be highlighted and the OK button should become green/selectable. Click OK.
3. Browse to the desired output directory and name the output file.

4. Download and install CAD Exchanger. Unfortunately this is not freeware or open source, but there is a free trial period (no idea the duration) and it was the only file converting utility I could find that could go from parasolid to x3d.
5. Open CAD Exchanger. Before we get started we need to enable 'Merge Face Sets' in the X3D exporter options. Go to Tools -> Options. Click on 'X3D exporter' in the left hand list. Check 'Merge Face Sets'. Click OK.


7. Import the recently exported parasolid file, File -> Import.
8. You can see a preview of the model and solid bodies in the tree to the left.
9. Export the model, File -> Export. Select X3D files (*.x3d) in the dropdown menu). Name and save the file.

10. Open a new file in Blender and delete the auto-generated cube. Your screen should look something like this. I'm using Blender 2.68.

11. Import the newly exported X3D file using File -> Import -> X3D Extensible 3D (.x3d/.wrl).
12. Browse to the X3D file, select it, and click 'Import X3D/VRML2'.
13. After rotating and scaling this is our cube and cylinder! Done!
Hope someone finds this helpful, I know it would have saved me quite a few hours of trial and error. Please post successful results or questions in the comments as well as if you find a free/open source file converter.
