CAD Packages


Do any of the following CAD packages ProEngineer / Catia / Solid Edge / Ansys / SolidWorks / Inventor use OpenGL?

Thanks for any help.

NB.: This is my first message to the forum and I am not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this question.


Typically, CAD software use GL. I don’t know for all of them but ProEngineer and SoliWorks do.

Drivers like for the ATI FireGL, 3D Labs Realizim, NV Quadro have specific optimizations in their GL drivers for these.

Your question is appropriate but you could visit the webpages for these products.
