I'd like to convert a solidworks file with the colors setup in solidworks to a collada dae file. The purpose for this is to create ROS models of a robot. We do all our work in Solidworks so I want to create a toolchain that makes it easy to get from Solidworks to a .dae file.
I've scoured the internet and there doesn't seem to be such a tool. There was a solidworks to collada plugin from labs.solidworks.com but labs is gone and I can't find the installer anywhere.
I've got blender but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get from solidworks to blender either. I could go the stl route but then I'm forced to manually put all the colors back in.
