Overcome your data migration challenges with SOLIDWORKS data migration tools
Once you have decided to switch from your current CAD tool to SOLIDWORKS CAD, the next question is what do I do with all this legacy data? Now that you know there’s no need to migrate all of your design data, learn about the tools available within SOLIDWORKS that makes moving your legacy design data easy.
3DInterconnect - enables you to leverage all of your existing designs seamlessly, supporting a variety of formats including, Autodesk Inventor®, PTC Creo®, Siemens NX™ and Solid Edge™. Simply insert these existing components into your SOLIDWORKS assemblies with no translation required.
FeatureWorks - this powerful tool in SOLIDWORKS allows you to add intelligent parametric features quickly, either by choosing them specifically, or allowing FeatureWorks to add them automatically.
Direct Edit - these tools enable you to continue making changes to your existing components andmanipulate and edit any file, regardless of whether they were opened using 3D Interconnect or imported from other sources.
SOLIDWORKS PDM - allows you to immediately start benefiting from all of your existing work, such as searching within SOLIDWORKS and Windows Explorer.
