VIBV supports exporting to CAD (DWG and DXF), SolidWorks (SLDDRW, SLDPRT, and SLDASM), and Inventor (IDW, IPT, and IAM) file formats.
- DWG: (drawing) format is supported by AutoCAD and other CAD applications
- DXF: (data transfer) is an open format that is supported by many CAD applications. A DXF file is a text file that describes a 2D drawing. The text is not encoded or compressed, so DXF files are generally large. If you use DXF for 3D drawings, you may need to perform some cleanup to make the drawing display correctly
- IDW: After you create a model, you can create a drawing to document your design.
- IPT: A part model is a collection of features. If necessary, solid bodies in a multi-body part file can share features. Sketch constraints control geometric relationships such as parallel and perpendicular. Dimensions control the size. Collectively this method is called Parametric modeling. You can adjust the constraints or dimensional parameters that control the size and shape of a model, and automatically see the effect of your modifications
- IAM: You place components that act as a single functional unit into an assembly document.Assembly constraints define the relative position these components occupy with respect to each other. An example is the axis of a shaft aligning with a hole in a different component.
