Various colors and flavors
The source files of the Open Benchtable come under various formats. They are basically all identical tables but usable and inspected to ensure the files work in several of the most common CAD software at this time.
We provide files in the following formats:
- .stp (STEP) These are basically our originals.
- .x_t (PARASOLID) Native format for NX, SolidWorks and a number of other programs.
- You can open a .x_t file in SolidWorks for example without translating the data and save changes as .sldprt
- This is not available for all version yet.
- .skp (SKETCHUP) This is to make it easily editable in the best free CAD software you can find.
The files are provided ‘as is’, without any guarantee of support from us. Nevertheless, if you encounter issues or have any questions, you may be able to find some help on our forums.
