Screws

Fastener downloads for SOLIDWORKS. Native models, optimized for speed.

ISO replaces DIN

Many DIN standards were withdrawn 30 years ago

European engineers are fond of DIN standards, buy many DIN standards for fasteners were withdrawn in 1992. Most of them have an ISO replacement.

We only offer fasteners for active standards because we purchase the standard document and use it as a source for our fastener models.

Lock and spring washers like DIN 125 and DIN 6798 have been withdrawn without an ISO replacement, most likely because they don't work well.

We create high-quality, high-performance fastener models for SOLIDWORKS.
  • We create our fasteners using battle-tested software
  • Extremely consistent native SOLIDWORKS models
  • All files have mate references and custom properties
  • No more mate errors when you switch between types
  • Dumb files, so fully compatible with PDM
  • One configuration per part; the most robust option
  • We get our data straight from the standards

Our 3D models + Lightning = magic

Lightning is the add-in that makes working with fasteners fun again.

We were tired of scrolling through endless lists of fasteners in SOLIDWORKS, so we built Lightning. Lightning makes it easy to add, edit and replace fasteners.

Just open the filter, pick a type, size and material, then drag the file into your assembly. Lightning will add a washer and/or a pattern for you.
