The HOOPS translator exports SOLIDWORKS part or assembly documents as HOOPS (.hsf) files.

HOOPS files are streaming graphics files that download details piece by piece to a web page, which is helpful when you display large files. You can view HOOPS files over the Internet using the HOOPS viewer. See www.hoops3d.com.

The exported files contain graphical information only; you cannot edit these files.

To export a SOLIDWORKS document as a HOOPS file:

  1. Click File > Save As.
  2. Select HOOPS HSF (*.hsf) for Save as type.
  3. Enter a file name, then click Save.
