MecSoft Corporation’s VisualXport for SolidWorks is a direct plug-in that enables users to export their parts in VisualMill-formatted files (.vcp). The solution is designed to enhance workflow for users who design in SolidWorks and use VisualMill in their manufacturing process. Users can export: 2D and 3D sketches (curves), solids with combined faces, solids with separate faces and individual surfaces. The solution is compatible with SolidWorks versions 2008 to 2011, in both 32- and 64-bit versions.
