FormatWorks (Capvidia) - SOLIDWORKS Data Translation
Using SOLIDWORKS to import and work with 3D models created in other CAD is not always an easy task. The import of 3D models into SOLIDWORKS requires that they be valid and editable solids, but often the result can be a collection of free surfaces that are impossible to knit together in SOLIDWORKS. Converting them into solids requires extensive manual work and it is not always successful.
Capvidia specializes in products and solutions extending SOLIDWORKS capabilities, saving engineering time and keeping projects and budgets within defined limits and time schedules.
FormatWorks Provides Correct and Precise Import of 3D CAD Models into SOLIDWORKS. A wide range of formats is supported including formats that are not available in SOLIDWORKS such as native CATIA V4 and CATIA V5.
If your work requires compatibility with MBD (Model Base Definition) data you can access annotation, GD&T and PMI info directly from Dassault CATIA V5, UGS/Siemens NX, CREO-Pro/E and STEP A203 Ed2.
FormatWorks will import 3D CAD models better than SOLIDWORKS, especially for neutral formats like IGES and STEP.
