How to find 3D models of LEGO parts in a useful format for CAD

I'm using Fusion 360 for making my projects. There are various software for building digital lego blocks - Mecabricks, Lego Digital Designer, Studio 2.0 and LDraw. In these softwares it´s possible to export parts in obj och stl format. But the models are made out of mesh triangels and are not ideal to use in a CAD.

Is it possible to attain Lego parts in a better format somewhere? There are some parts to download here att grabcad of course, but not all are available here.

Well, I'm going to anseer my own question here. After eading DK's tutorials and I understand that a big library of parts in a non mesh format doesn't exist. So it´s either make them myself if I can´t find them here on GrabCad or some similar place.

unless you have autodesk inventor and can use iparts its a problem.
How ever you can download other simple models from GC and step files and from there save out the individual parts.
If you can set up a kind of parts library id be happy to help with some parts too
Cheers
