The SOLIDWORKS software analyzes incoming colors and combines them when assigning them to a new SOLIDWORKS part or assembly. This reduces the number of visual properties created when you import files with appearances and saves time loading the imported models.
You can distribute drawings and assemblies files to be viewed with the eDrawings Viewer.
Import diagnostics repairs faulty surfaces, knits repaired surfaces into closed bodies, and makes closed bodies into solids.
You can export part and assembly files to STL (.stl), 3D Manufacturing Format (.3mf), or Additive Manufacturing File Format (.amf) format.
The Export to AEC Wizard helps you prepare a SOLIDWORKS model so you can import it into AEC software.
3DVIA is an online community for sharing 3D content. You can save models from SOLIDWORKS to your 3DVIA.com account.
You can import a scanned file with mesh data into the SOLIDWORKS software without using the ScanTo3D add-in. The software imports the file and associated mesh data into a solid or surface body. You can select and reference the converted facets, verticals, and facet edges. You can also maintain the mesh as a mesh model in SOLIDWORKS that allows graphical viewing of the mesh model.
3D Interconnect replaces SOLIDWORKS current translation capabilities with new technology and workflows for working with third-party native CAD data in SOLIDWORKS 2017.
