Great Sites! I have found GrabCAD to be a very useful peer sharing site. A Global Community of Engineers.

David,

I have been looking avidly for 2D UK., doors and windows of the 'standard' European Std., Patterns.  However I have never had the luck to find one even given all the window companies we have dealt with regularly for many years who mostly at least do not carry cad programs for architects. Do you/we have within Turbocad a European Guru with whom I may make contacct or do you have knowledge of a site from where these details can be found. Plan and elevational description is dead easy to produce yourself but drawing vertical cross section with accuracy in 1:50 / 1/4" scales is a nightmare few of us have the patience to attempt with any success.

Any help would be much appreciated. The drawing of unnecessary detail within Architectural standard drawing practise is not carried out but the showing of such detail would be good for rapidity in draughting. It is also sought for clarity as well as for large scale working drawings when necessary. Differs of manufacturers say, cill, head, mullion, weathering's and other section dims can be coped with, I am sure within dynamic samples when necessary.

Our change to Turbocad is proving very useful following the redundancy of our age old program, we have just a few operational hiccups to overcome as yet though although these are rapidly disappearing.

Chris I just added the CAD Details site to my list below.  Perhaps it'll help your cause?

I found lots of ball bearings on http://www.astbearings.com/free-3d-cad-models-for-bearings.html

But McMasters Carr has them also.
