There's no Assembly or Drafting and you don't have all the export
It's just a few steps to process an alternative 3D export.
Model the part in the SW modeler and save, then import the *.sldprt file
into Acad/MDT via the plugin and then save the file and/or export via
Acad/MDT as either IGES or SAT.
