What you should know…..Export from Solidworks into Mastercam


Import/Export Converting CAD from one system to another should be compared to translating from Russian to Greek with a dictionary where more than a few pages are missing. If you are trying to import a ProE file into Solidworks you need to realize that you are importing one competitor into another, and therefor in this example Solidworks only have what ProE gives them to work with in the conversion process. This goes for every CAD manufacture, so until we get all our different CAD extensions converted into one standard (keep dreaming, scooter) you should treat you import/export with some natural caution.

System Tolerance So it is understood that there can be complications with translating the CAD data from one format to another. How about the system tolerance set up by the IT guy or you as a CAD captain?

Here is a couple of more things you might find interesting when exporting from Solidworks into Mastercam… A video is worth a thousands pictures
