Default Directory of 3D parts to DIY 3D print/machine

With 3D printing becoming increasingly common/cheap, and the proliferation of web sites that will machine small quantities of parts for reasonable prices, I though it would be a good idea to have a Sticky that has links to user generated 3D files that people can make on their own.

I'm going to use the first post or two to keep a list of links to anything people submit or that I see in other threads. I'll attempt to keep it organized in a reasonably logical way

Guidelines:
1) 3D models should be in the .STL format, so pretty much everyone can open them
2) for metal parts, a drawing with critical dimensions/tolerances and material would be useful
3) no uploading straight up copies of parts produced by companies. This is for M3forum user created parts. This doesn't mean they can't fulfill the same purpose-- just that they need to be developed independently (not copied).

It may also be useful to add in more things to make this more accessible to the layman. Correct material for the application, reputable places to get parts made, and so on.

Fast radius is a ups funded or bought additive mfg company. I believe they do one offs.

https://www.fastradius.com/

For software Iím going to start with tinkercad. It looks pretty simple. More advanced user should check out fusion360.

https://www.tinkercad.com/

This is really freaking exciting stuff. I havenít done cad stuff since college so Iíll need a crash course but I look forward to contributing

Fusion 360 is really quite incredible. Overkill for what I usually need, but it comes in handy quite a bit.

I gotta play with tinkercad too for more basic stuff.

Also, shapeways is another option for 3D printing services. Being located in NYC makes it nice for shipping times too, although they can get pretty big backlogs.

I also use Fusion 360. Tinkercad is great, easy and fast, but I find it gets limited on more complicated pieces. I'm looking forward to this thread going somewhere!

This thread has some great potential. I suggest a look at www.3dorchard.com as a pretty powerful and free browser based 3D cad tool. They have an object library under construction and a very cool design evolution tracking feature to assist with crowd-sourced and collaborative object designs. Plus an option to tap into region specific print services.
