For anybody that uses fusion 360 or looking for a CAD software, there is a insert function inside fusion that allows you to browse all of Mcmaster Carr's parts catalogue and insert the 3D modeled component into your current design. This will help you design and build to standard using the correctly label parts and specifications.

 

NYC CNC has a easy to follow guide: https://www.nyccnc.c...ile-fusion-360/

 

This makes it easy and fast to create a assembly for your telescope designs.

 

Here is a crayford focuser that I designed which uses a 3D printer and off the shelf parts from Mcmasters catalogue. Just bolt the assembly together witth a screwdriver and your good to go. No parts Fabrication required: https://imgur.com/a/rHlILD5

 

 

Just thought I would let people know, as I just learned of this super valuable function.
