Here are the files you can download for free. Currently there are three different types of files. First format is the SolidWorks E-drawings. This file format will allow anybody to open the files no matter what software you have installed. E-drawings is the most user friendly format since you don't have to have any special 3-D modeling (CAD) software to look at the files. The second format is the solid model file in *.igs format. You must have some sort of 3-D modeling (CAD) software to open this file format. If you are planning on doing the machining I have, you will need the *.igs file. But if you just want to open the file to look at it, you can download the E-drawing. And the last type of files you can download are the blueprints. I don't make blueprints of the solid models I make. So if you need a dimension while working on your project, you will have to reference the model. Later on, I hope to make available other files dealing with my projects...including sketches, setup sheets, programs, etc. Tim at dumpsterCNC made the 1911 solidmodel *.iges file. Andy at Helix60@neo.rr.com made the VZ58 *.iges file.
My files are free to download, and if you share these files they must remain free!
