Solid-Edge-Viewer for ASM, PAR and PSM

Additional Native Solid Edge File Formats

  • dft Native 2D drawing from Solid Edge, derived from a Solid Edge 3D model
  • pwd Solid Edge welding environment. This file environment has not been developed further since version 17. The functions are now available in the ASM environment.
  • Worth mentioning is the Parasolid modeling kernel used by the software. Parasolid X_T and X_B files are 3D exchange formats without a modification history, but are the first choice for exchanging 3D models between CAD/CAM programs with a Parasolid core such as Siemens NX, SolidWorks and Solid Edge.

How Do I Convert Native Solid Edge Models?

If you do not have CAD software with a Solid Edge interface, the design must be exported from Solid Edge to a common 3D exchange format, such as STEP. Parasolid x_t or x_b is recommended for exchange with Siemens NX and SolidWorks.

Converting ASM, PAR and PSM to STEP is also possible with a 3D converter or CAD converter.

3D-Tool Premium includes the 3D-NativeCAD Converter. In addition to native Solid Edge models, this converts models from many common CAD systems into the 3D exchange formats STEP, IGES, SAT and Parasolid X_T supported by many CAD/CAM programs.

Test the Solid Edge Viewer and Solid Edge Converter

3D-Tool is a CAD viewer with many native CAD interfaces, including Solid Edge, and professional measuring functions, demolding analysis and wall thickness analysis.

  • Open and publish ASM, PAR and PSM for the 3D-Tool Free Viewer or as 3D-PDF
  • Open ASM, PAR and PSM and save as STL, 3DS, PLY, WRL, OBJ, or PLY
  • Convert ASM, PAR and PSM to STEP, IGES, VDA, SAT and X_T
