SYCODE Offers Four AutoCAD 3D Interoperability Add-Ons for Alibre Design

“Alibre Design already has the ability to read and write AutoCAD DWG and DXF files”, Deelip Menezes, owner of SYCODE explained. “However, this ability is severely limited to 2D DWG/DXF files only. When importing DWG/DXF files, Alibre Design ignores 3D objects such as solids, bodies and regions and creates a 2D drawing document from the 2D curves present in the file. Moreover, Alibre Design cannot export parts or assemblies to DWG/ DXF files. It can only create DWG/ DXF files from its own 2D drawings. This makes 3D DWG/DXF files pretty much useless to Alibre Design users. Our AutoCAD 3D interoperability add-ons for Alibre Design are designed to remove this limitation and give Alibre Design users the ability to read and write 3D DWG/DXF files.”

The AutoCAD 3D interoperability add-ons for Alibre Design are:

(1) DWG Import for Alibre Design
- DWG import add-on

(2) DXF Import for Alibre Design
- DXF import add-on

(3) DWG Export for Alibre Design
- DWG export add-on

(4) DXF Export for Alibre Design
- DXF export add-on

The DWG/DXF import add-ons read 3D solid geometry from DWG/ DXF files and creates corresponding solid bodies in an Alibre Design part document. The DWG/DXF export add-ons reads solid bodies in an Alibre Design part or assembly document and creates corresponding 3D solid geometry objects in a DWG/ DXF file. These add-ons can read and write DWG and DXF files up to the latest version of AutoCAD.
