Much like my thread from a few years back, I was wondering about the exact measurements of the VEX parts. Some of the aluminum parts’ CAD show the metal being just as thick as their steel counterparts. Looking at the PDF files that came with the STEP files of the parts, I am noticing some strange differences.
For example, the Aluminum 2x1x25 C-Channel says that it’s Y dimension width is 0.546"
whereas the Aluminum 2x1x35 C-Channel says that it’s Y dimension width is 0.563".
Also, aluminum thicknesses seem to be 0.063" in CAD (in the STEP files that are thicker), rather than 0.064", which is what the product pages claim the thickness is.
Just wanting to get some information about what is correct and what isn’t, as I am trying to complete a more or less perfect VEX CAD library.
