FormatWorks for SolidWorks

MBD Tools for SolidWorks

Import data, validate translations, verify model quality, and publish MBD data directly from within SolidWorks.

Publish QIF and STEP AP242

Publish SolidWorks models to neutral industry-standard MBD formats such as STEP AP242 and QIF. Exporting to ANSI QIF or ISO STEP AP242 transforms the model and its annotations into a neutral, industry-standard, MBD-compatible format usable in downstream processes. SolidWorks uses best-in-class translation technology to create well-structured, semantically correct data files.

FormatWorks
Import and repair CAD data directly inside of SolidWorks.
Capvidia’s FormatWorks importer for SolidWorks has been the premier tool for importing CAD data into SolidWorks since 2002. 
FormatWorks provides validated and trusted translation of CAD models from a wide range of data formats, including native formats used by popular CAD systems and neutral industry-standard formats. FormatWorks automatically identifies and classifies model errors in addition to supporting both manual and automatic repair and healing.
