There are three levels in the CAD market – low-cost, mid-range, and high-end – and around the world many mechanical engineers prefer the happy medium presented by mid-range SolidWorks, Solid Edge, and Inventor products from the three leaders in the market, Dassault Systemes, Siemens PLM Software, and Autodesk, respectively.
SolidWorks is not an in-house product of Dassault Systemes, but was purchased from the eponymous startup company more than a decade ago. Today, the software is considered by many as the de facto standard for mid-level MCAD (mechanical CAD), with more than one million educational and corporate installations worldwide.
The isicad.com team recently completed a large project that was aimed at SolidWorks data extraction. From the experience we gained from this project, we now know in detail which data entities exist during SolidWorks sessions, and how the entities relate with each other. This knowledge allows us to identify which of the SolidWorks API functions are useful in resolving our clients’ specific problems.
Our programmers can efficiently integrate your software with SolidWorks, or else implement your software as a SolidWorks plug-in.
