A PRT file is a model part file saved in a three-dimensional model format used by Unigraphics, a 3D CAD program. It contains surface and solid information for a single part. PRT files are saved in a binary format, similar to an Alias wire model and an SDRC (Structural Dynamics Research Corporation) model.
Navisworks is a native file of Navisworks® project review software by Autodesk.
Navisworks files come in three formats: NWD, NWF, and NWC. An NWD is a single file that contains all model geometry, environment, viewpoints, and review markups. An NWF file is a list of links to the original files. It doesn't keep model geometry and, to be opened, requires access to the original CAD files. An NWC is a cache file created from any native CAD or laser scan files, when opened in Navisworks.
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
In the 3rd and 4th parts of the series, we will talk about surface display modes in 3D CAD programs, starting with the shading mode.Read more
We continue to execute our mission to improve the import of massive 3D models. In 3.16 users will notice enhancements in both desktop and web visualization, as well as the extension of the support of the native file formats.Read more
