In the ever increasing manufacturing complexity, solid models represent the best medium to precisely communicate the product requirements between customer and supplier.

The whole contract review process is streamlined with 3D models as they precisely define all requirements. PSP’s SolidWorks system can read the following CAD formats.


 

  • SolidWorks   Part Files (.prt, .sldprt)
  • VRML (.wrl)
  • SolidWorks Assembly Files   (.asm, .sldasm)
  • STL (.stl)
  • SolidWorks Drawing Files   (.drw, .slddrw)
  • Catia Graphics (.cgr),
  • DXF (.dxf), DWG (.dwg)
  • ProEngineer Part (.prt, .prt, .xpr),
  • Lib Feat Part (.lfp, sldlfp)
  • ProEngineer Assembly (.asm, .asm, .xas),
  • Template (.prtdot, .asmdot, .drwdot)
  • UGII (.prt),
  • Parasolid (.x_t, .x_b, .smt_txt, xmt_bin)
  • Autodesk Inventor Part (.ipt),
  • Stereolithographic (.stl)
  • Autodesk Assembly (.iam),
  • IGES (.igs, .iges)
  • Solid Edge Part (.par, .psm),
  • STEP AP203/214 (.step, .stp)
  • Solid Edge Assembly (.asm)
  • IFC 2x3 (.ifc)
  • CADKEY (.prt, .ckd),
  • ACIS (.sat)
  • IDF (.emn, .brd, .bdf, idb).
  • VDAFS (.vda)
  • Rhino (.3dm)

Our CAD system includes using SolidWorks Product Data Management in order to precisely control print and model versions. The software assures that the correct print or model version is in use at all times.
