AT A GLANCE?

How to Export SolidWorks models to AutoCAD Civil 3D??

The Multi-CAD collaboration is facing multiple challenges. The BIMDeX Data Exchange Ecosystem through its proprietary BXF file format offers a simple yet intuitive solution for the Interoperability challenges.?

 

· SolidWorks to Civil 3D data Exporter/Converter is a simple way of data exchange through plug-in/add-on tool which creates native Civil 3D blocks (.dwg) from SolidWorks parts (.sldprt) and assemblies (.sldasm)

· Exports your SolidWorks model into a BXF file using BXF Exporter Plug-in. Which can be Imported in the Civil 3D platform using BXF Importer Plug-in.

· There will be no loss in geometry or any other meta data, all the associated properties would be brought in and the RGB colors as well.

· The tool supports various industry specific requirements like geometric simplification, parameter data exchange.

· It comes with multilingual support (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, etc.)?

 

Supported Version:

 

SolidWorks: 2015 - 2021

Civil 3D: 2017 - 2022

 

HOW IT WORKS

SolidWorks to Civil 3D?Workflow

  

 

01

SolidWorks

SLDPRT & SLDASM file Formats

Export the SolidWorks Model to BXF file by using BXF Exporter for SolidWorks

  

 

02

BIMDeX

BXF file Format

BXF file would carry all the designed data information of the model.

 

03

Civil3D

DWG file Format?

Import the BXF file in AutoCAD Civil 3D using the BIMDeX Importer to obtain native Civil 3D Blocks?

 

HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?

SolidWorks to Civil 3D Conversion Features

Frequently asked questions

 

What file types are supported?

All SolidWorks Parts (.sldprt) and Assemblies (.sldasm) can be converted to Civil 3D Blocks (.DWG)

 

What type of models can I convert?

Any model type such as Furniture, Lighting, HVAC, MEP Elements, Structural or Architectural components can be converted.

 

What languages do you support?

The tool works in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish environments.

 

Do I need to have both SolidWorks and Civil 3D to do the conversion?

You need to have both the software to use the product. But if you do not, you can opt our CAD translation service, so we would convert your SolidWorks models to AutoCAD for you.

 

Is this a standalone software?

No, this is just an addon plugin tool that will be installed in your existing SolidWorks and Civil 3D environments.

 

How does this differ from the default .dwg Export?

You can export including the part properties, colors as well as all geometry. There will be no loss in any meta data. The hierarchy will be maintained and components will be instantiated.
