File Transfer Form:

Information

A. Type of Files

  • In general, ZIP these files for transfer.
  • Graphicast uses Pro/Engineer and SolidWorks
  • RFQs: We prefer a 2-D drawing with tolerances (can be an electronic file or a hard copy). A 3-D model is always helpful and complements quoting to a 2-D toleranced drawing.

2-D Drawings

  • Pro/E (.drw with .frm and .prt or .asm)
  • SolidWorks (.slddrw)
  • AutoCAD (.dwg) or DXF (.dxf)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)

3-D Drawings

  • (Solid) Pro/Engineer “Part” (.prt) suppress most features to reduce file size (we will “resume”).
  • SolidWorks model (.sldprt)
  • STEP (Solid, from non Pro/E system) (.stp)
  • IGES surface model (omit wireframe) (.igs)

B. Transfer Methods

  • Use the form on this page to upload your files directly to us.
  • E-mail, as an attachment to a message
    1. Send to: sales@graphicast.comtt

  • Graphicast can retrieve from your FTP (Web) site.
    1. We need password, directory, filename, etc.

These methods are available for transfer of computer files electronically to Graphicast. In every case, we need a clear understanding of why you are sending the file, and what you want Graphicast to do. Suppress, ZIP, etc. per above suggestions.
