High Speed File Import/Export

Fast, direct import of 3D CAD files originating from multiple CAD systems into a single application

WORKXPLORE enables users to build virtual unified prototypes or 3D models from files imported from various CAD applications. Users can work on model set up and improvements before committing time and resources to creating a real prototype.

A wide range of CAD interfaces are available:

Catia V6®, Catia V5®, Catia V4®, Siemens NX®, Parasolid®, Creo®, SolidWorks®, Solid Edge®, Autodesk Inventor®, ACIS®, JT®, Cadds®, IGES, STEP, VDA, Unisurf, STL (binary and ASCII),OBJ (3D geometry from Wavefront technologies), PLY (Polygon File format), MEG, WORKNC® workzones, WORKNC® geometry, WORKNC® toolpaths, ISO toolpaths, VISI®, DXF, DWG®.

WORKXPLORE has been created for the efficient import and analysis of files of all sizes and types but it is the speed at which it imports large, and even very large, 3D CAD files which is particularly impressive, often taking less than half the time to open a file compared to the original CAD application!
The application saves native CAD data in its own lightweight Xplore3D format (.a3D) which also allows specific WORKXPLORE data (measurements, annotations...) to be saved at the same time. This lightweight format can be easily communicated to other members of the project team by e-mail.


With WORKXPLORE  users can quickly convert standard or native 3D models via the available export interfaces (STEP, IGES, STL, PLY, OBJ, MEG, JT®, 3DPDF, WORKNC CAM geometry, DXF, DWG®).
