Fasteners for SOLIDWORKS - Basic Collection

Replace the 'smart' Toolbox with dumb parts that actually follow the standards and do not require a license. Ditch random STEP files for native SOLIDWORKS models with mate references, cosmetic threads and stable mates.

About this collection

The fasteners you use the most

You receive a ZIP file that contains 16 standards and a total of 11496 files.

Included standards:

DIN 471, DIN 472, DIN 929, DIN 6885A, DIN 7984, ISO 2338, ISO 4014, ISO 4017, ISO 4026, ISO 4032, ISO 4035, ISO 4762, ISO 7089, ISO 7379, ISO 7380-1, ISO 10642,

High-quality 3D models

Every decision is made with the engineer in mind

  • Extremely consistent thanks to software
  • Made for speed
  • Every part contains mate references, custom properties and cosmetic threads
  • One configuration per part
  • PDM compatible

DEMCON has over 100 engineers that make use of the 3D models from CAD Booster and the response has been great. The hodgepodge library from the past is replaced by a consistent set of models, which saves us time and money.

Native SOLIDWORKS models

You receive a ZIP file with a folder for each material, every folder contains all sizes. Each part has one configuration and every part contains mate references, cosmetic threads, custom properties and a material. Download samples below.

ISO replaces DIN

Many DIN standards for fasteners were withdrawn 30 years ago

European engineers love DIN standards, but most DIN standards were withdrawn in 1992.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Lock and spring washers do not work well so their standards are withdrawn without a replacement.

The best fastener library

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
  • One configuration per part; the most robust option
  • Dumb files, so fully compatible with PDM and 3DEXPERIENCE

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.
