Collection of 3d models of mechanical parts?

Hi,

when designing new parts I often see myself spending lots of time on having to design mechanical parts like hinges, switches, connectors, collets, levers, screw connections etc. Even when I find a part I often have to rebuild them completely because the tolerances don't scale and while channels like this [www.youtube.com] or [507movements.com] are a source of great inspiration designing those mechanisms into usable parts, troubleshooting and iterating them feels inefficient.

Has anyone come across a collection, repository, designer on thingiverse/myminifactory etc. that has started a something similar? A collection of mechanical parts that anyone can just include in the projects and not only safe time but also can add and improve on.

yes smiling smiley and its great especially because most models provide .step files, but you have to be lucky to find a model that includes the part you need, because you usually search for full model/assemblies and not individual mechanical parts.

McMaster.com has models of nearly all their products

OnShape.com has a library of parts, and (because free accounts must make designs public) you can often find some-one else's design for a part.

Fusion360 lets you drop in parts from McMaster Carr and other places. The other places sometimes require subscriptions, but AFAIK, the MC stuff is all there for the asking.
