Now available in the Free CAD library from VirtualCAD is an entire laundry list of fasteners including Socket Head Cap Screws, Shoulder Screws, Flat and Button Head Screws, Set Screws, Pressure Plugs, and Dowel Pins. Addressing engineers' need for more detail in their drawings, the CAD library lets the user control the amount of detail by turning it on and off, or resetting it, to avoid larger file sizes.

These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Many classes were nearly 50 percent girls and 50 percent boys.
