SolidWorks® is a computer-aided-design (CAD) software suite that creates 3D graphical representations of real world parts and the tooling required to make them.

Planning & Design

Designing with SolidWorks® integrates all the knowledge needed to plan your hard tooling. Components interact with each other to ensure the perfect fit and functionality in 3D assembly. The tooling production can then be linked from the conceptual 3D models to prototyping and then the final production design.


Quality Control

Electronic design allows for 3D assembly. This provides a platform for ensuring parts fit together before they are made which helps to eliminate the trial and error phase in manufacture.


Efficient Production

Make parts knowing they will fit - this saves time and money. The solid model components can then be loaded through Mastercam® to our CNC mills. This suite of automation is how Punch Tools stays world class and competitive with off-shore competitors.

3D File Formats

  • SolidWorks (*.sldprt, *.sldasm, *.slddrw)
  • IGES (*.igs, *.iges)
  • Parasolid (*.x_t, *.x_b)
  • Pro/Engineer (*.prt, *.asm , *.xpr, *.xas)
  • Step (*.stp, *.step)
  • ACIS (*.sat)

2D File Formats

  • SolidWorks (*.sldprt, *.sldasm, *.slddrw)
  • CadKey (*.ckd, *.prt)
  • AutoCAD DWG/DXF (*.cad, *.dwg, *.dxf)
  • PDF (*.pdf)
  • MasterCam (*.MCX, * EMCX)

Ideally, supplying 3D Solid Models provides us with the most information, along with any accompanying 2D drawings. If 3D Solid Models are not available, 2D geometry files in CAD format are helpful. Where possible, it makes the process easier if files are kept in their native SolidWorks® format.
