Greetings to all .
Is it possible for another a 3D user (using a 3D program other than Solid works) to open an assembly or a part (sldasm & sldprt) in Solid works file extension?
Thank You in advance
With kind regards
Yap Inventor Can Open Solidworks part or assembly
Greetings Jaja Jojo
Thank You for Your answer. Can it also be opened in other 3D programs other than Inventor?
I do not know if NX and Creo can open native solidoworks this time, But Onshape can open native solidworks file you can try it has a fully functional version cloud software and its free the only difference is what you did is visible to everyone
Can export in a format such as STEP or IGES for the other users?
Greetings Bernie Daraz
Yes, I can save and export it in STEP file extension, I have done it before. I haven't tried IGES yet. The reason was that it was taking (in this case) very long for me to save the assembly or part in a STEP file extension, so I was wondering if I could just export in a Solid works file extension. But I will keep trying and try the IGES file extension. Thank You kindly for Your suggestion.
Native SolidWorks Assemblies and Parts open in MasterCam and KeyCreator.
Parts only in MetalSoft, also called FabriWIN for precision sheet metal programming. I believe there was something called AP100 as well.
Solid Edge ST9 can open native SolidWorks part and assembly files, but they come in as dumb solids so no different to going via STEP.
