CATIA V5 Import for SolidWorks
CATIA V5 Import for SolidWorks is an utility created to help you import data from CATIA V5 into SolidWorks in a simple manner so you can work on your 3D projects without any setbacks.
Both CATIA (Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application) and SolidWorks are powerful, leading software solutions for 3D modelling that cover support for design in mechanical engineering, electrical and fluid system design.
The application allows you to migrate 3D data from CATIA V5 into SolidWorks where it can freely be edited. A good thing about the application is that for it to properly work, you don’t need to have CATIA V5 installed on your computer but it does require SolidWorks as it is a tool in the form of a plugin.
CATIA V5 Import for SolidWorks uses 3D InterOp technology to make the transfer, which is the standard that uses nearly all the CAD systems when it comes to migrating data from one format to the other. The application is compatible with all the new versions of both the CAD applications and is able to import files with minimum effort on your part.
To do so, you need to access it from the tab or section it creates in the SolidWorks interface. Moreover, the add-in enables you to scan and analyze the CATIA V5 files in order to verify their health status. Besides migrating the 3D data, CATIA V5 Import for SolidWorks can repair the files if any issues are detected. The fixing process is capable of correcting the variations in precision.
In closing, CATIA V5 Import for SolidWorks is a very simple to use tool that is capable of inserting 3D data into your SolidWorks environment in a simple and straightforward way.
