This is a library of some of the most used inch-series 80/20 components. Simply unzip the archive place the library in your SketchUp Components directory:

For Windows: C:\Program Files\SketchUp/Components

For MacOS X: /Library/Application Support/SketchUp/Components


Open the Components window in SketchUp by selecting "Components" from the Window menu. Select the 80/20 Library. You can now click on any 80/20 component and add it to your drawing by clicking on any part of your drawing. Note:

and you can readily set the exact length by first extending the profile, then entering the desired length in the lower right hand corner edit box in the active SketchUp window.

2. Profiles are provided in x, y and z directions. This is simply to assit you so that you do not need to rotate before using then in your model. Just click on the desired profile and desired direction.

3. Profile fasteners. There are two main types of profile fasteners :

- End Fasteners. For 15 Series profile, these would be the 3380 (and similar) fasteners:

These fasteners require a tapped hole in one piece of the profile, and an access hole in the other. In order to simplify the SketchUp models, these type of fasteners are represented only by the access hole in the component library:

- Anchor Fasteners: For 15 Series profile these would be the 3360 (and similar) fasteners:

These fasteners require a milled hole in one end o fthe profile and slide a T-Nut into the mating piece. For SketchUp, these fasteners are represented by:
