Easily import and export 3D CAD data

Thanks to our optional Communicator module, BricsCAD Pro and Mechanical users can import and export 3D CAD data with all the major MCAD programs.

 

Supported formats include neutral ones, such as STEP and IGES; native formats, such as CATIA, Inventor, and SolidWorks; and kernel formats, such as Parasolid. All editions of BricsCAD export drawings and models in ACIS, DWG, 2D PDF, and a variety of raster formats.
