How to convert CAD files in Workbench

Tutorial by Sar Dar

How to convert multiple different file types such as sldprt ( Solidworks files) to Step, Iges, stl, Parasolid, acis, jt, or vrml formats.

  1. Step 1: Create a Workbench account

    Grabcad gives very detailed instructions in creating an account. Just select Workbench (where it would otherwise say "Print" or "Community") in the top left corner of your screen to get started!

  2. Step 2: Upload you file into Workbench

    This can be done by dragging and dropping your file into workbench, or by clicking the "Upload" button on the right side of the menu options

  3. Step 3: Download as...

    Right click on the file you just uploaded and click on "download as..."

    This will give you the option of downloading it as a STEP, IGES, STL, Parasolid, ACIS, JT, or VRML file.

  4. Step 4: Recieve new file

    When the file is done being converted a pop up will appear saying your file is ready for download. You can download it directly by clicking "download file" and you also receive an email with the new file ready to download so you can easily download it at a later date without having to reconvert it!
