    Is there a particular place where 3d models of particular parts and equipment are saved? Ive looked at the blocks on this site but they are not very extensive.

    I know we will be building most of our library but i was hoping there was a place, (rather than talking to the manufacturers) where we could download files such as engines, generators, gearboxes, valves etc...

    is there such a library of ship type components that we could purchase?

    Hi Stephen,
    I'm not aware of any marine specific cad libraries but here are a couple of links to general engineering cad libraries where you might find something of value. I think both are free to download files from.
