Digikey - Searching only for components which have 3d models
« on: April 03, 2015, 02:55:16 pm »
Hi,
Does anyone know if it's possible to show only components with 3d models on Digikey?
Thanks

  • If you can buy it for 4$ on eBay, why design it?*

I didn't even know Digi-Key had 3D models. I thought it's the manufacturer that would provide any such info.

I looked and I can't see any 3D info. Even Jenny in the Live Chat couldn't find me any.

Did you find any? I'd love to see that myself.
*Except AC/DC adapters on eBay. Avoid them all!

Didn't know that either. Would be interesting to see if the models would fit into popular Cad/layout packages.

Look at most d-sub connectors from norcomp http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/171-009-103L001/209ME-ND/858099 they have step/igs files to download. Obviously this isnt much of a concern for IC/passive manufacturers, but it helps a lot for connectors, switches, etc.

This script offers it as a feature, plus many other enhancements:

Thanks a lot nerdyHippy. This makes life a lot easier :)
It's nice Digikey added STEP models on quite a few parts but it's plain stupid not adding a filter checkbox.

When protel 2004 (altium) was first introduced, they digitized all of the parts in digikey's database (then), in a separate download.
