CAD Data Transfer Information

A. Type of Files

  • In general, ZIP these files for transfer.
  • Graphicast uses Pro/Engineer and SolidWorks
  • RFQs: We prefer a 2-D drawing with tolerances (can be an electronic file or a hard copy). A 3-D model is always helpful and complements quoting to a 2-D toleranced drawing.

   2-D Drawings

  • Pro/E (.drw with .frm and .prt or .asm)
  • SolidWorks (.slddrw)
  • AutoCAD (.dwg) or DXF (.dxf)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)

   3-D Drawings

  • (Solid) Pro/Engineer “Part” (.prt) suppress most features to reduce file size (we will “resume”).
  • SolidWorks model (.sldprt)
  • STEP (Solid, from non Pro/E system) (.stp)
  • IGES surface model (omit wireframe) (.igs)

B. Transfer Methods

    E-mail, as an attachment to a message

  • a. Send to: sales@graphicast.com

These methods are available for transfer of computer files electronically to Graphicast. In every case, we need a clear understanding of why you are sending the file, and what you want Graphicast to do. Suppress, ZIP, etc. per above suggestions.
