    Cadra to Solidworks or DWG

      Doing a search on Google it appears it might be a MathCAD file.

            Yes, Mathcad has that extension, but so does Microcadam and Helix, which I have. I cant remember if Cadra carried the same extension. I do know the software looks just like Microcadam, I had a chance to play with it in the 80's.

              No, I not have the licence.
              In this case, I got cadra format from our customer, then I want to open it with DGWeditor or SolidWorks.

              Any suggestion ?

              Thank`s

                Have your customer send you a dwg/dxf or an IGES file. We do that all the time with our customers that work in a different cad system. Same with any suppliers we have that needs to work on our stuff. We will send them what they need to get the job done.

                CADRA has a small installed base of users. I would think they are used to being asked for data translations.

                If they are going to be a big customer that generates a good amount of revenue for the company you may want to consider getting a seat of the software so you can take their data natively and do the translation on your end.

                  If you have the license, Cadra will export DXF and DWG.

                    What are the options in CADRA for Save As or Export?

                    Are you trying to export the 2d or 3d data and/or both?

                    Looking at CADRA's website they say they can export IGES and DXF/DWG. Looks like they can go direct to Catia and CADAM. Check the bottom of the following page for info.

                    I have no idea on translators for their data, but assuming you have the CADRA software it looks like you should be able to get data out of CADRA that can be read by SolidWorks. You may want to call up the CADRA folks direct for info on how to get data translated.
