Pro/E models


New member
Hello all.

I am looking for suggestions for websites for downloading parts directly from the manufacturer or sites that have accurate models of manufacturer's parts. I know that I have been able to get Pro/E models from Amp for electrical connectors but I am looking for any suggestions at this time. I am looking for Nibco parts specifically at this time. If any of you have parts available that could be uploaded, that would be great also.

Thank you all for your help.
Try PENN ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING (PEM). They make captive fasteners like clinch nuts. They have lots of captive fasteners available for downloading.


I have several website that have downloadable 2d and 3d part files.

This one has hundreds of part catalogs.

This site has links to many other Pro/E related sites, as well as Catia, SolidWorks, SDRC I-Deas and Unigraphics.

This site has some downloadable models s well as other links.

This has many links.

This has some really good downloads, much more that just part files, plus a Pro/E exchange.

These sites should be part of every users favorites as they make design time much less.
