CAD data exchange software allows users to receive data from one system and then translate it into the necessary format so it can be read on another CAD solution. This software integrates with general-purpose CAD software to grab all the data needed for the exchange. These solutions should perform quality checks and data validation to ensure the exchange is as clean and accurate as possible.
CAD data exchange ensures all types of data are captured during the exchange process, including geometry and attributes. These solutions are typically leveraged by businesses and in fields that frequently use CAD software, such as architects and engineers. These users can utilize CAD data exchange software to share important data with colleagues and customers to ensure that all necessary parties can view the CAD data.
To qualify for inclusion in the CAD Data Exchange category, a product must:
Agni Link is a advanced CAD-ERP data integration systems currently available. It is an add-in to AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge and many others that offers a reliable and cost-effective way to integrate CAD/PDM/PLM applications with ERP systems.
3D InterOp is the industry-leading 3D CAD data translation software development toolkit. It enables your customers to work with imported 3D data as easily as if it was created natively in your own application, as well as export the 3D data for downstream engineering applications. 3D InterOp's architecture enables users to optimize the interaction with their 3D data. 3D InterOp supports all major 3D data exchange formats that are required in leading engineering applications and supports 3D CAD / CAM data exchange for any modeler including 3D ACIS Modeler, CGM Core Modeler, and Parasolid.
