The CATProduct file format is associated with CATIA V5 assembly format and is used to simulate industrial design processes.
Unlike CATPart files, CATProduct does not contain any geometric information, only model parts, and assembly structure information. Nevertheless, single CATPart files can be generated from CATProduct assembly.
The CATPart extension is compatible with Autodesk Inventor / Fusion 360, and Okino Computer PolyTrans software.
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
