Learn how to convert SOLIDWORKS to BREP with CAD Exchanger
Approximately 23% of CAD professionals globally use SOLIDWORKS on daily basis. Together they generate tremendous volume of 3D files in native format, which are troublesome to feed into 3rd party major and minor CAD systems due to format specifics.
SOLIDWORKS files (previous to version 2015) use the Microsoft Structured Storage file format. This means that there are various files embedded within each SLDDRW (drawing files), SLDPRT (part files), SLDASM (assembly files) file, including preview bitmaps and metadata sub-files.
CAD Exchanger seamlessly reads SOLIDWORKS data (.sldprt and .sldasm extensions) and converts to the file format of your choice.
A Brep file is a 3D model stored in the boundary representation (also known as B-rep). The Brep format is a part of Open CASCADE Technology (OCCT).
The Brep structure is made up of two major components:
It comprises three-dimensional data such as vertices, edges, wires, faces, shells, solids, compounds, edge and face triangulations, polylines on triangulations, space location, and orientation.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From SOLIDWORKS to BREP, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
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
