PANAJI, Goa (17th December 2009) SYCODE has released CATIA, NX and Pro/ENGINEER 2D drawing file import add-ins for SolidWorks. These add-ins give SolidWorks the ability to read CATIA, NX and Pro/ENGINEER drawings without the need of a CATIA, NX or Pro/ENGINEER license.

"Suppliers to users of high end MCAD systems like CATIA, NX and Pro/ENGINEER often use SolidWorks as their MCAD system,” explains Deelip Menezes, Founder and CEO of SYCODE. "These SolidWorks users often receive design data in the form of 2D drawings in the native file format of the high-end MCAD system. SolidWorks does not offer any way to read these 2D drawings, which can be a huge problem. The add-ins that we are releasing today are designed to solve this exact problem.”

The add-ins have been tested to work with the 32 bit as well as the 64 bit versions of SolidWorks and are available as a fully functional trials. They come with installers and detailed documentation in the form of compiled HTML help files which contains step-by-step tutorials to get end users started in the shortest possible time.
