Hi all, I'm a freelance designer and i'm sick of searching through endless supplier websites hoping to find the components i need to incorporate in my products and hope that they have detailed drawings or 3d files...
So if anyone knows of some good "one stop shop" component websites that they would recommend please post them so we can create a database of product design component resources.
Thank you!
Rick

Good list there, moved it to Materials and Processes. I'll add as I think of others.

I use http://ca.mouser.com/ when I can't find something on digikey, usually I can find what I need between the two

Not always to spec. But there been a few times I couldn't find a part and http://grabcad.com/ had a model of one I could use as a placeholder.
