MecSoft announced the release of VisualXPORT 2014 for SolidWorks.
VisualXPORT for SolidWorks is a direct plug-in for SolidWorks, letting 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 so we are 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 customers. They needed enhanced export capabilities in SolidWorks beyond supporting STL, IGES and STEP formats while not having to give up using our standalone CAD/CAM software, VisualCAD/CAM.”
The solution can be used to export 2D and 3D sketches (curves), solids with combined faces, solids with separate faces and individual surfaces. With VisualXPORT 2014 for SolidWorks, solids and surfaces can also be exported as NURBS surfaces. It is certified to run inside SolidWorks versions 2009 through 2014.
