I have compiled a parts library starting with what Team Virus had and applying that to all parts.
Most of the files are taken directly from the .STEP files on the VEX main site and complex assemblies for things such as motors and omni-wheels have been saved as single part files to save on space and fix missing assembly part errors.
Every part that needs it has circle sketches cut into the square holes for easier concentric mating for beginners.
Also every single part except for pneumatics has been colored with the appropriate color, material type and gloss type for rendering purposes.
This does not, however, contain material properties such as density and elasticity
If you find any parts with errors or any missing parts, let me know and I will add them or fix errors.
Thank you for sharing!! I downloaded yesterday, but when I tried to open some structures in solidworks it indicates error to open the file, a lot of files with that error, may I know what version of solidworks did you used?
If you have only the 2014 version, you can go to the Team Virus web page here%between% and get the structure parts in SW2014 format. SW made a change in 2015 & 2016 that is not backward compatible to SW2014 . Many other VEX parts are availble in 3d Content Central
Yes. But this is a library of everything together. 3D Content Central is a pain to get parts quickly unless i am missing something in the site. I suppose it is a matter of need
The latest version of SOLIDWORKS can be acquired via SOLIDWORKS’s sponsorship program. Unless you specifically chose to download an earlier version.
I strongly reccommend upgrading your solidworks installation as the move from 2014 to 2015 brings a lot more improvements and fixes.
Unfortunately I cannot save the documents as a lower format. Which I guess will just have to be dealt with as it is for now till someone finds a workaround
