Formatworks – Powerful Data Translation Software for SOLIDWORKS Designers
FORMATWORKS – SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold product extends the SOLIDWORKS data translation capability to support CATIA V5 and V4 data and many other native and neutral CAD formats.
The technology used in FormatWorks is based on propriety algorithms developed by Capvidia highly automates the whole process and provide accurate and reliable CAD data translation to and from SOLIDWORKS. FormatWorks simplifies the import to SOLIDWORKS adding the automatic repair and healing which ensures that imported models meet SOLIDWORKS’ criteria and form valid solids. This repair is always performed within the model tolerance while maintaining original model integrity and preventing model deformation.
- Import native formats like CATIA, Pro/E – Creo, Siemens NX, Inventor, Parasolid, STEP, IGES & VDA-FS and many more
- Use special repair tools to simplify the workflows for importing single parts or large complex assemblies into SolidWorks
- Reduce time consuming repair and healing when working with imported geometry
- Re-use legacy data instead of re-designing
- Use 3’rd party geometry to build your tools around in SolidWorks in an efficient way
