One thing that I think could work is generating imagery from the catalogue for parts you've not seen before. Initialize a random starting position, and use bullet to have them fall into a realistic position on a plane. then raytrace from the top.

This way you could also cross-reference with part seller sites to see the going rate for a part and determine whether it's worth your time to separate it manually. Have a bin for rare parts worth separating by hand.

That's clever!
