CAT5Works enables seamless design collaboration between CATIA V5 / CATIA V4 and SolidWorks systems. CAT5Works imports CATIA V5 Release 6 to 21 part (*.CATPart) / assembly (*.CATProduct) files to SolidWorks, and exports SolidWorks files to CATIA V5 part (*.CATPart) / assembly (*.CATProduct) files.

CAT5Works supports batch translations for convenient handling of bulk data. It supports transfer of CATIA V5 FT&A entities (Flag note, Text, Geometric Tolerance, Simple Datum, Datum Target and Roughness) into SolidWorks.
