what files can be opened in rhino and 3ds max? from solidworks!

i think .stl can be opened in 3DS

Iges to Rhino.

Buy nPower RhinoToMax. Its a Max plug in that lets you read Rhino and Solidworks files natively in Max without having to conver to meshes or IGES.

When going from Solidworks to Rhino your two best options are IGES or STEP.

Personally, I prefer to use STEP because the objects maintain their “solids” designation in Rhino. Another benefit of STEP is that when importing a Solidworks Assembly, all of the components remain as individual parts rather than a collection of surfaces.

That being said - STEP sometimes doesn’t work depending on the complexitiy of surfaces. IGES seems to be a bit more robust in this case.

Rhino will also import .stl, dxf, & dwg from Solidworks
