Colibri VFxx 3D Mechanical Models

The Colibri VFxx 3D model contains the PCB and all components. Depending on the module variant, some components may be not assembled. The component heights are typical values. Due to production tolerances, the actual height of the assembled components can be different. Please use the generic Colibri mechanical model with the maximum component height for testing the mechanical fit. This ensures the mechanical design fits all current Colibri modules as well as future releases.

This is a SolidWorks CAD model. You can download the free eDrawings model viewer from SolidWorks here.

These are a generic STEP models that can be opened and modified in any 3D CAD. The second model does not contain any copper pads and therefore less complex.
