You can save a SOLIDWORKS file as an IFC file with IFC entity classification. You can then export it with custom properties that include the IFC metadata along with other properties.
You can import 3D Manufacturing Format (3MF) files and export SOLIDWORKS part and assembly files as 3MF files. Dassault Systemes is a founding member of the 3MF industry consortium, whose goal is to eliminate interoperability issues with 3D printing formats.
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.
The Import/Export options have moved to the System Options dialog box. Previously, you accessed them from the Open and Save As dialog boxes.
