Dxf file resources

What are some good sites to use to find already built DXF files for tractor attachments? I am wanting to build me a set of brackets for a kubota excavator KX161 and when I search on google for dxf files like that…all it returns is dxf files of cutting out full excavators like for a sign or something. So, didn’t know if anyone had a few good ‘goto’ sites for buying dxf files. Thanks!

How accurate is that drawing.

Could sketch over top of the canvas feature in Fusion 360 to make a very close representation?

I have a little time before I have to head out this morning I’m going to give it a quick try

Wow that is awesome! I did not even know about the sketch over the top canvas feature!! Thank you so much! I just screen shot the drawing off of the internet, so I do not know how accurate it is but what you are doing would at least give me a start ! Thanks so much!

here is a start (link above ) but someone went through some trouble to distort that image.

Maybe the factory manual will have better dimensions?

Yeah. That image is not to scale. I scaled it up to the length in the drawing and the height was off by 27mm. If I had the tractor, I could take some measurements of the distances between the holes and it would be a pretty simple part to draw.

Thank you both so much…guess I may just have to buy the brackets so I can take some actual measurements…then could I get back on this thread and maybe y’all could help me draw the file and I could learn how to do that based on taking some measurements…which will help me with future drawings

I would search out a workshop manual or a spec sheet or some kind of PDF that has a cross-section of that bucket and we can glean the information from it.
From that we should be able to get a very accurate drawing.
I wonder if you phoned a Kubota dealership if they would be able to send out a spec sheet from one of their books?

That price is insane. Walmart has them for $68 and there are several sellers on ebay in the $160 to $200 range for the ears.

yes sir, that is why I was trying to build versus buy them.

perfect. thank you!

this listing has some more measurements.

I think @TinWhisperer has developed his own search engine that can spit out any manual know to man. :wink: The guy has amazing search skills!! I think @toolboy accurately dubbed his superhero personality as Manual Man!


I discovered that to be true!!

now that I am seeing these are 7" wide at the widest point…I don’t have any stock that wide around the house…looks like I may just have to order them.

I phone my Kubota dealer in town and they said they don t have the information but if I want to come measure at the dealership that is cool with them.

The edge to be welded is 15 5/8" long

This set will fit the following Kubota models:



The Kubota U45 quick coupler measures:

  • From the center of radius to the center of radius is 9.591in(243.6mm).
  • From the center of radius to the center of hole is 4.379in(111.2mm)

I think we can get this figured out.
