SimMechanics Link

SimMechanics™ Link is a CAD plug-in for exporting CAD assemblies from SolidWorks®, Autodesk Inventor®, and PTC® Creo™ software. The plug-in generates an XML file detailing the structure and properties of your CAD assembly and 3-D geometry files for visualizing the various CAD parts. You can then import the files into SimMechanics software, which parses the XML data and automatically generates an equivalent multibody model.
