The migration process can take years to complete and requires forethought and careful planning. Despite these challenges, migrations are common within the CAD and CAM industries – technologies are constantly improving, and businesses often use inefficient legacy systems. The CAD migration process also makes it possible to translate all existing legacy data into any format that meets the needs and priorities of product engineering teams. In this case the customer’s CAD data was originally created in Creo. They wanted their entire CAD data to be migrated to Solidworks.

Project Scope

To convert the Creo-based CAD files of the customer’s five products that contain about 1200 Parts, 235 Assemblies, and 310 drawings into Solidworks.


As soon as we received the input files, we assessed the files based on the complexity of the modeling, such as the Master Modeling or the type of parts, such as sheet metal, machined parts, plastics, or standard parts, and provided a realistic pricing to the customer. After the consent from the customer regarding commercials, we had a discussion about the details that we need from them like the Template files which we need to work on and ensured the input CAD files that we received were the correct ones.

The list of the parts, assemblies, drawings generated were shared with the team and the set of assembly files were assigned among the team members. The output of CAD data is monitored everyday with the team, also kept an eye on reusable or repeatability of parts which saves a lot of time in this lengthy process. With our keen observations and design approach on the models, we were able to find out some design issues and suggested some improvements in the design to the customer, this way we have started providing design services to many of our customers while they came to us for CAD migration. The quality check of the parts done regularly with respect to the output CAD data.
