This new extension allows Rhino users to save their models as .sldprt and .sldasm files, the native formats of SOLIDWORKS software.
The plug-in uses Datakit’s writing technology. So users don’t need to get a SOLIDWORKS license or to install SOLIDWORKS to make it works.
This add-on is perfect for Rhino users wishing to exchange their models with SOLIDWORKS users. Bidirectional exchanges between these two applications are thus possible thanks to the SOLIDWORKS files import natively available in Rhino.
Users wishing to try this add-on can register on Datakit website to request a trial license.
