Solid Edge Exporter

The exporter is an add-in to a 3D CAD product. These are used to export your 3D model to a QuadriSpace model (QSM) file directly from the 3D CAD software. This file can then be imported into any QuadriSpace product for content creation, distribution and collaboration.

Can I import Solid Edge files directly without the Exporter?

In general, yes. Starting with the 2014 version, Pages3D and Publisher3D include the ability to import Solid Edge files. This native import ability is included with the regular installation programs.

Do I need the Solid Edge Exporter?

Maybe not. Since the 2014 version, QuadriSpace software has included native importers for Solid Edge files, you may be able to get the best results by just importing the 3D model. However, there are cases where the exporter is better. You may need Exporter if:

  • You need extra information only available with the exporters (such as configurations and exploded views created in the CAD software)
  • You have trouble importing because references to parts, materials or other externally referenced files are not accessible from the workstation that has the QuadriSpace product installed.
  • You would like to have your engineer send you a single, compact file instead of a hierarchy of files sometimes needed to load solid assemblies
