Has anyone created a part library for Socket Head Cap Screws?

Unless I'm missing them, the only fasteners in the VX library are hex head screws.

I've started one. I'm not quite done though. I'm doing all the Holokrome library of non MM fasteners. I was actually thinking about selling the library if I got enough interest

Hi bdudney

As a common part, you will find that many suppliers of standard parts like this already have a library that you can download from their websites. These would be IGES or STEP 3D model files.

However, it is not necessary to have a zillion models. All you need is one VX parametric model. Every time you require a SHC screw of a different size, simply copy the model and modify it's dimensions. If you need a range of sizes for a project and have a data file like a spreadsheet, you can use this to derive a family of parts in VX.
