File translators

AutoPOL is 3D software and that makes it important to be able to communicate with different 3D CAD products.

For that reason AutoPOL is always delivered with a full translator package included.
Below you will find all the different file formats that are included and what version that is currently supported.
With AutoPOL BendSim you can also convert flat patterns with bend lines into 3D files from the 2D files mentioned below.
