This is a library of some of the most used Parker IPS 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 Parker IPS Library. You can now click on any Parker IPS component and add it to your drawing by clicking on any part of your drawing. Note:

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 1.5" and 40 Series profile, these would be the 25-003 and 20-002 fasteners, respectively:

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:

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:
