SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect

3D Interconnect in SOLIDWORKS 2017 delivers groundbreaking new capabilities for
working with both neutral and native CAD data from various sources, unlocking powerful new work
flows for us to collaborate with customers and vendors.

By using SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect, we can now

  • Maintain direct integration of native CAD files and we can Insert proprietary CAD data directly into a SOLIDWORKS assembly without converting it to a SOLIDWORKS file.
  • Avoid fixing errors or problems due to SOLIDWORKS awareness of all components in the native CAD files, like face and edge Ids.
  • Directly open imported files and treat them like Base Parts, so we can freely make design modifications without affecting the native file.
  • Open the proprietary 3D CAD format in the SOLIDWORKS software with its associative link to the original part.
  • Update changes in the SOLIDWORKS file if we update the proprietary CAD data in its authoring application by maintaining all downstream features created in SOLIDWORKS.
  • Update both part and assembly files as design changes take place with Update Model feature.
  • At any time, we can break the link to the Original CAD file
Supported Format and their versions in 3D Interconnect :

Benefits :
  • It enables users to work with data from other CAD systems.
  • It facilitates collaboration between consultants, manufacturers and clients, encouraging a “mixed CAD” environment.
  • Companies who use a combination of software or switch from another 3D CAD system to SOLIDWORKS will greatly benefit from this capability.
  • Now we can freely make design modifications without ever affecting the native file.
  • SOLIDWORKS notifies users when changes are made, ensuring better connectivity throughout your design process.
  • It helps engineers to focus on their design rather than translating files.
