MecSoft announced VisualXPORT 2.0 for SolidWorks, a direct plug-in for SolidWorks, that lets users export their parts in VisualMILL formatted files (.vcp). The solution provides an enhanced workflow for companies that design in SolidWorks and use VisualMILL in their manufacturing process, the company says.
"MecSoft is a SolidWorks Gold certified CAM developer, and because of that is very familiar with the unique needs of SolidWorks users," said Uday Honnalagere, support manager for MecSoft. "VisualXPORT for SolidWorks was created as a direct result of the feedback received from our VisualMILL customers. They needed enhanced export capabilities in SolidWorks beyond supporting STL, IGES and STEP formats while not having to give up using our standalone CAM software, VisualMILL ."
VisualXPORT 2.0 for SolidWorks can be used to export 2D and 3D Sketches (curves), solids with combined faces, solids with separate faces and individual surfaces. With VisualXPORT 2.0 for SolidWorks, solids and surfaces can also be exported as NURBS surfaces. It is certified to run inside SolidWorks versions 2009 through 2013.
