Importing files from McMasters-Carr

marhar
I recently found out that mcmaster.com has reference 3D models for many
of the parts they sell.  For example,

     https://www.mcmaster.com/97040A033

Is there a way, either directly or through another program, to
import any of these file types into OpenSCAD?

   3-D EDRW
   3-D IGES
   3-D PDF
   3-D SAT
   3-D Solidworks
   3-D STEP

Try using FreeCAD to import the file, and export to a triangle mesh format like STL.
