So EZPC has a rudimentary 3D visualisation thing. What I'd like to know is can it output that as a file compatible with a 3D cad system, eg. Solidworks? I don't think mine can (V19) but has the latest version got anything?

Pete,
The clue to the answer lies in your question. "Rudimentary"! The 3D visualiser (even in V22) is just that, -JPG compatible and that's about it.

With the IDF export add-in you can export 3D mechanical files.

These import into Fusion 360 after renaming the file extension. I'm not sure if Solidworks supports the IDF or EMN/EMP. I'm pretty sure EMN/EMP is native in Fusion now but don't quote me on that.

The only issue is the component models obviously aren't carried over, I've got a significant number of foot prints in my Fusion 360 library so replacing the dimensional boxes with correct models isn't too much of a chore.

I can then export this complete model as a STEP file.
