Export Part to SOLIDWORKS


nTop Platform now allows the ability for your nTop part to be converted into a STEP or Parasolid format and exported into Solidworks! This will allow you to take your complex part and bring it into CAD to do further operations. 

Some of the major benefits of this process are that it is fast and robust, creates a high surface quality part, and it allows for increased usability downstream in CAD Operations, Simulation, and PLM. Examples of downstream CAD Operations are booleans, blending, and shelling.

This export functionality works best for topology optimization results, but the same process can be applied to more complex geometry. The traditional CAD system may not be able to handle the complex model that is generated from the conversion process.
