Easier and more uniform drag and drop functionality
Reading DWG, DXF and DGN files has been improved to work similarly when using drag&drop or Open File command from the File menu. (VX-4651)
- When you drag and drop a DWG file to Vertex desktop, you will be asked whether to bring the file in 2D or 3D DWG.
Support for Solid Works version 2016
You can now also read the SolidWorks models made with 2016 version (optional feature) .
- This applies to 64-bit version of Vertex G4 only.
Sab file format
New import/export option: ACIS modeler sab (binary format). Binary sab is about 30-35% smaller than sat. Sat and sab formats are mainly intended for conversions of the parts. The converter is included in the basic software free of charge. (MEC-8144)
Old VDA- format has been disabled
VDA-file format, used mainly in car industry, has been replaced with ISO 10303 STEP file format. For that reason Vertex G4 no longer supports VDA file format.
