I work in technical support of SolidWorks and one of my customers that have the need to export files in MATLAB to analyze. I wonder if the program accepts files of my program, as extensions .sldprt or .sldasm, if not, which he accepts CAD files.
Best regards, Cássio Dahmer
When I look through past questions, and look at the documentation, it appears to me that there is no provided support for sldprt or sldasm files. What I do see is that SimMechanics can handle STL files and possibly some other types.
