View Full Version : Can SolidWorks export a 3D model to a DWG format???

Is this possible? I had a conference call today with a company in Germany that we're doing lots of work for and they use SolidWorks about 70% of the time, and he didn't know if this could be done or not because he's more of a manager, and not one of the designers. That would help me out tremendously if it can though in future projects.

I read that Solidworks can do a "save as" to DWG or DXF file formats.
I also found a program called DWG Export for Solidworks 1.0. It's available here:

Nope a Solidworks model cannot save as a .DWG but you can save it as a .SAT and this open in Autocad as a dumb solid.

Just one thing, you can place the 3d model in the solidworks 2d drawing layout and generate all the views you need, then save as a .dwg and open it in Autocad.
