SOLIDWORKS is a modeling CAD and CAE program by Dassault Systemes which runs on Windows. It is built on Parasolid kernel. SOLIDWORKS user base covers a very wide range of manufacturing market segments, such as aerospace, transportation, electronics, machinery, medical, etc.
SOLIDWORKS users are capable of drawing 2D and 3D sketches, creating models and assemblies, adding notes, dimensions and tolerances.
cadwork is a CAD software, developed by the CSEM. It allows users to draw, to design, or to manufacture. Originally, cadwork was created for the watch industry, but now it is mostly used by the architecture, engineering and construction market, that is civil engineering, carpentry, topographic, road building, architecture, armed concrete, glue laminated timber, stairs.
cadwork offers special modules to provide solutions for different tasks. The modules are fully-fledged components, related to each area of activity and they can be arranged to represent an entity. Thus, they can be exchanged against other modules, or complete an already existing CAD / CAM solution. The existing modules are the following: 2D-Layouts and details, 3D-Modeling, cadwork Viewer, 3D-Cabinet, Roof, Element, List, Piece by piece shop drawing, CNC machines, Staircases, Variant-parametric, Glulam.
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
