Data provision of standard BOPLA products in 2D and 3D formats

In order to permit the development and construction of a complete device, we can provide 2D and 3D data formats. A 3D tool is available on the internet for each enclosure series – see www.bopla.de. By using this 3D tool, a three-dimensional model of the enclosures can be displayed on any computer, and it is not necessary to install any additional software.

All catalogue drawings showing our enclosure systems and accessories can be downloaded directly from the internet in DXF and PDF formats. On request, all catalogue data can also be sent in DWG format (source of data: AutoCAD) and in the .wmf or .eps image formats.

In order to ensure that we send you the drawing you require, please provide us with the following information:

  • Article number or designation of the specific article (e.g. BOTEGO 52006, not just BOTEGO)
  • The output format you require, if possible with details of the appropriate DWG or DXFversion
  • Email address
  • Contact person

After one-time registration and acceptance of our non-disclosure agreement, you can view 3D data for all our standard enclosures (STEP format) in our online product catalogue. You can register here.

If you need additional data formats, please contact your competent partner in BOPLA’s sales support team. The following formats are also available:

Data format Volume of data (unpacked) Volume of data (compressed – WINZIP)
DWG format (source of data) 100% 33%
IGES format * 230% 35%
STL format 102% 9%
SAT format 30% 8%

* We do not recommend this format because of the large volume of data and the long conversion times. 

Information regarding BOPLA's 3D data

The electronic data prepared by BOPLA are used only to illustrate the products to be purchased from BOPLA and are to be treated confidentially. Trademark rights exist for BOPLA products, and BOPLA will pursue any infringements of these rights through both the civil and criminal courts. The 3D data prepared by BOPLA do not correspond 100% to the production article illustrated; for example, under certain circumstances, the part-sections may be represented in simplified form or may be completely missing.

The 3D data merely support dimensioning functions, cross-sections, comments etc., and, in consequence, are only used for illustration purposes. Technical specifications and characteristics cannot be derived from these.

The following standards apply to the manufacture of BOPLA products:

  • Tolerances for plastic acc. to DIN 16901; standard products are subject to tolerances acc. to DIN 16901. In the case of special materials, the nominal dimensions vary according to the shrinkage difference in respect of the standard material and any tolerance groups which may occur
  • Tolerances for die casting acc. to DIN 1688
  • Tolerances for aluminium profiles acc. to DIN 17615

Detailed information on these is listed in the “Technical data” section of the current version of our main catalogue.

Insofar as we make technical information available there, this is to the best of our knowledge. However, the provision of this information does not free the contractual partner from testing for himself the suitability of this information in respect of the processes or purposes which he intends to carry out. The decision as to whether our products are suitable for the applications intended by the contractual partner is his own responsibility. This liability on the part of BOPLA in connection with the provision of technical information is excluded except in the case of intent or gross negligence.

We reserve the right to carry out product optimisation, changes to materials and corrections to drawings (in particular relating to the 3D data).
