Free, open source part libraries?

Is there such a thing as free and open source 3D component libraries that are compatible with SolidWorks?

 

The Solidworks EULA for its 3D Content Central is apparently too restrictive to permit development of Open Source Design / Open Source Hardware using design components from the library:

 

"You may use Data for internal computer-aided design use only. You may not i) distribute Data as part of any service or ii) copy or post any Data on any Internet site or iii) broadcast Data in any media or iv) use the Data in a manner that is competitive with this 3D ContentCentral service."

 

So, anyone doing Open Source Hardware development with SolidWorks has to model every component of a design themselves?
