Bolt and nut library free for rhino recommendations please


Where can I get metric and imperial nuts and bolts from, free, for rhino 3D compatability ?

i.e. not as a mesh if poss.



steve, have you tried the boltgen plug in?

Lots of the McMaster Carr products have free 3d files associated with them. STEP and IGES can both be imported into Rhino.

Here’s an example.


I use the bolt gen plug in and it is wonderful. You can get it at food for Rhino.
Here is an image of a bench shear I designed using bolt gen.

All my best … Danny
