OSE Part Library
The Part Library is OSE's repository of accurate 3D CAD files. These should be posted as individual CAD files for all the parts, modules, and full machines. Only approved OSE Developers have commit privileges to the Part Library. During the design process, the Process Manager handles requests to pull new files into the Part Library.
See LifeTrac Construction Set#Modules for background to this work.
Construction Set Modules
- Hydraulic Fitting Library
- PVC Pipe and Fittings Library - - schedule 40 pipe - 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1.5", 2", 3", 4". Elbows, tees, reducers (from the large one to the next smaller one), threaded 1/2" & 3/4" to NPT (National Pipe Thread). This gets us a lot of the biodigester, house plumbing, and hydronics. See how a part library page is set up. Itemized. Generate FreeCAD, and then export STLs for 3D printing. Also save as STEP if available. If import, then save as FreeCAD. Start a page called PVC Pipe and Fittings Library.
- Hydronics Part Library
- Add bolts library
- Add pins library
- Hydraulic Valves Library
- Hydraulic Motor Library
- Hydraulic Cylinder Library
- Seed Eco-Home Gutter Library
- Seed Eco-Home Roofing Library
- Seed Eco-Home Lumber Library
- Seed Eco-Home Panels Library
- Metal pipe fittings library
- Stock Steel Library
- Construction Materials - already in official FreeCAD Library, such as metal roofing
We are listing all the modules here for porting to FreeCAD format. List here is under development, and could use several master's theses in machine design to complete.
Many of the following are Construction Set Primitive Modules. These modules are parts that go into a tractor, and can be used to build various other related heavy machines.
