3DXML is an open-standard proprietary 3D file format developed and supported by Dassault Systemes. 3DXML files are typically created as exports from Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE application. The 3DXML file is a zip archive file consisting of a BOM file and one or more 3D representations stored in either XML or binary format. Compact file size allows users to transfer 3D XML quickly and embed it into websites, emails, and various MS Office documents. Therefore, the format is commonly used to integrate 3D data into technical documentation.
SLDASM is a SOLIDWORKS Assembly File. It refers to a SOLIDWORKS 3D assembly, which consists of several SOLIDWORKS part files (SLDPRT). An assembly file itself may contain some children SLDASM files, as well as some SLDPRT part files.
SLDASM are proprietary files with closed specifications. Nevertheless, some APIs (like CAD Exchanger SDK) provide the facility to read and convert them to other formats.
Software applications like Autodesk Fusion 360, Okino PolyTrans, and AMADA SheetWorks can import and render SLDASM files created with SOLIDWORKS.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
