Best CAD program
I want to look over the file but i am very new to this may i ask what program is best to view the files.
There are different files, witch should make it possible to open them with virtually any cad program. I used SolidWorks 2014 to open them, worked oke, import diagnostics had a little struggle with it, but worked fine anyway.
I used the STEP file, because in my experience those succeed the best, on trying to open the SAT file, my program crashed, and the others can’t be opened by (my version of) Solid Works

Slightly unrelated and most likely already known but Tinker CAD is good for on the go and Auto-Desk’s new 3D scanning app for you phone is quite cool. It would be great for this actually, the software is free, and easy to use, designers can create things in plastic, scan it with there phone, and upload it to here as a 3D module that can be view in-browser, with there own instruction on how to make it.Toggle replies
Hi guys, I’m having some problems about the CAD files too. I’ve tried to download the AutoCAD 2017 by different website’s links but in no one of them I could start the download. So, I tried the SolidWorks but it seems that it’s not made for the kind of computer that I’m using now. The operational system of this computer is a Mac OS X 10.6.8
Someone know how can I solve this problem?
Thanks, from Brasil!Toggle replies
Anyone knows onshape ? ( onshape.com) . We using it at smartfriendz for our designs and it’s a very good solution for open source project as it’s free for public docs. The main advantages is the ability to design collaboratively, work in browser and the tools are just great ( like solidworks) .
Main disavantage : it’s not open source.
