XSYNC is an add-in that enables SOLIDWORKS to keep all selected exported files (STEP, DXF, PDF) synchronized.

Synchronize Export Files

Enables SOLIDWORKS to keep all selected exported file formats synchronized with the native SOLIDWORKS Documents

What it does

It is constantly monitoring the SOLIDWORKS save operation. When it detects that a SOLIDWORKS document is about to be saved, is checking if an export setting has been applied in the document.

If it has, the software is automatically applying those rules (Save and overwrite, ask before overwriting, ech) for exported files to the pre-defined locations, with the pre-defined file names.

Current Status

XSYNC enables synchronization of exported file types for all SOLIDWORKS Documents (Parts, Assembly, Drawings), supporting all SOLIDWORKS versions since 2015 to Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10 operating systems.

We also undertake incorporating features on demand, according to the customer’s particular preferences. Learn more about Custom Software Development.

Future Goals

  • Improving the reliability of the software
  • Adding more Features to fit your needs and personal designing style


Check out all the features of XSYNC.

XSYNC has many functions to manage exports:

  • Mass - define or remove, configuration specific, export settings in many ways :
    • Directly from the SOLIDWORKS Graphics or Tree View
    • All Parts of an Assembly
    • All Sheet Metals of an Assembly
    • All Assemblies of an Assembly
    • All Assemblies in a folder, with option to include subfolders
    • All Parts in a folder, with option to include subfolders
    • All Drawings in a folder, with option to include subfolders
    • Selected SOLIDWORKS Documents inside a folder


  • Manual batch export operation using all upper ways to select documents or export types.
  • Automatic synchronization: export pre-define exports every time the native SOLIDWORKS document is saved.
  • Switch to turn it off, during design proccess
  • Tools for controlling how and when the export operations will take place. A dialog always appear just before XSYNC start exporting, that has the number of exported files and the number of documents this files are exporting from. It also has a SOLIDWORKS Feature manager type tree, that has all exports in Assembly hierarchy, where you can check which exports you want to save.
  • Progress dialog, when exporting many files.
