CAD configurators for 3D printing

Here's how to use the CAD configurator to create free templates for 3D printed components:
1. Select the desired component group
2. Enter the required dimensions. The 360° viewing function enables you to inspect the 3D model from all sides.
3. Select the required file format and download the CAD file.
4. To order the completed 3D model directly from our 3D printing service, download it in STEP format, then upload it to the 3D printing service tool.

Our blog also has detailed instructions for designing gears and lead screw nuts for 3D printing.
