IMPORT STEP and IGES

STEP 2 DWG free included in progeCAD Professional, Import (and Export) STEP and IGES geometries from any mechanical application and transform them into easily editable DWG entities.

progeCAD offers advanced capabilities for interacting with MCAD (mechanical design system and software) through the activate exchange of physical design data. The range of systems and interfaces that bridge the CAD-MCAD domains also rely on standardized data formats such as the industry ratified STEP protocol.

The STEP file format itself (.stp or .step) is defined in the ISO 10303-21 (International Organization for Standardization) specification for CAD data exchange, and is supported by the majority of MCAD tools and systems. At the fundamental file exchange level, progeCAD Professional offers both export and import capabilities for 3D STEP files.

This provides the basis for the free exchange of high quality, standardized 3D modeling data between software domains, which simplifies CAD-MCAD design collaboration and enhances both the quality and accuracy of 3D model data.

Note that both the STEP AP214 and the legacy AP203 Step_Import.JPGformats are supported by progeCAD Professional – exported files are ISO-10303-21 -compliant (AP214).

The Swiss-Army-Knife CAD for file exchange

progeCAD is a powerful tool for conversion of different CAD file formats. It imports and exports a large number of file types, making CAD interchange easy!

PDF to DWG conversion

progeCAD helps you convert your PDF files to editable DWG files quickly and easily. The tool generates and optimizes vector entities such as lines, polylines, splines, hatches, circles, arcs and text strings; offers intelligent TrueType texts and line width recognition; retains colors in the DWG/DXF file. It is compatible with Layered PDF and preserves the same Layers scheme existing in the PDF when converting PDF to DWG. The PDF to CAD feature allows to save time by easily transferring projects, drawings, parts of existing in vectorial PDFs catalogues and manuals to CAD drawings to use them as native DWG files. It supports all versions of Adobe PDF file.

With progeCAD, you can easily Import/Export into your drawings a large number of file formats:

IMPORT

  • STEP, IGES Import (and Export) STEP geometries and transform them into easily editable DWG entities.
  • ESRI-SHAPE SHP Import SHAPE (ESRI) files with geometry and its attributes into DWG drawings. Specific commands allow geometry insertion, colors and layers management, data dynamic control.
  • 3DS, DGN(Microstation), LWO, OBJ(Wavefront), STL, RGT, KMZ, DXF, DWF, DWFx
  • Autodesk Revit® to insert BIM models into DWG. .rvt/.rfa are standard the facto in the building industries. progeCAD allows inserting BIM Autodesk Revit® models into your DWG as an underlay or as part of the DWG.
  • IFC to insert BIM models into DWG. IFC is a global standard for data exchange in the building industries. Building industry professionals can use IFC to share data regardless of what software application they use to get their job done. progeCAD allows inserting BIM models into your DWG as an underlay or as part of the DWG.
