Leave the FUD at Home | CATIA-to-Solidworks Translator

Break free of the shackles, ignore the FUD, and enjoy the freedom that comes with knowing there is a way to translate between CATIA and Solidworks.  It's free, but you won't find it available from Dassault Systemes.

CADCAM-E (CCE) has a free translation utility that does the impossible.  Well, impossible if you listen to all the FUD messages. Apparently it's so easy it's not even worth charging for.  Get more information from the links below.
