Microstation is a CAD software platform for 2D and 3D design and drafting, created by Bentley Systems. Its geometric kernel is Parasolid. It is widely used in the architectural and engineering industries and allows generating 2D/3D vector graphics objects and elements and includes BIM features.
ASM (Solid Edge Assembly) is one of the data file types used by Solid Edge CAD software. The files with .asm extension contain 3D parts (.prt) which consist of assemblies. ASM by itself, does not contain geometric information – it stores only the rules for connecting parts.
ASM (Solid Edge Assembly) also has no connection with assembly language, though this also uses an .asm extension.
Among CAD applications that support ASM extension are PTC Creo and Autodesk Fusion 360.
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
