Comparison of CAD, CAM and CAE file viewers


Comparison of CAD, CAM and CAE file viewers

Computer aided design (CAD), Computer-aided engineering (CAE) and Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software produces files in a large variety of formats many of which are extremely complex and poorly supported by other applications. This article gives an overview of the available software suitable for viewing these files so they can be shared with people who do not have the application which produced the file.
