The SolidView Product Family

Optional CAD Interfaces

Work with CATIA, IGES, STEP, Pro/E, SolidWorks and Many Other Popular CAD Formats

SolidView's CAD Interfaces provide the ability to import native CAD data without requiring expensive CAD system licenses. They’re ideal for non-CAD users who still need access to data. SolidView CAD Interfaces work with both SolidView/Pro and SolidView/Pro RP (not available for SolidView or SolidView/Lite), and are available in both single user and network licensed versions.



The following CAD interfaces are all available for SolidView/Pro and SolidView/Pro RP at the price listed:
