What do you need it for? You can edit files directly from solid works and Altium updates the 3d models automatically.

SolidWorks Modeler for Altium Designer

Product Details:
The SolidWorks® Modeler allows Altium users to create a SolidWorks assembly of a printed circuit board (PCB) directly from the Altium application. This enables designers to check for assembly problems such as misalignment of mounting holes or mechanical interference. It also provides a means of visualizing the PCB assembly. The product that your printed circuit board is part of can be "virtually assembled" in SolidWorks, eliminating the need for prototyping. The interface enables the detection of design errors very early in the design process thus reducing the cost of error correction. The Protel/SolidWorks Interface is a COM Automation client created using the SolidWorks API. It launches SolidWorks from Protel and builds up the PCB assembly by calling SolidWorks commands from inside Protel. As the interface runs, it checks the 3D library for corresponding parts. If there is no part in the 3D library, it automatically creates a "cuboid" SolidWorks part. It uses component height information stored in the Protel component.

Key Features:
Places SolidWorks PCB parts into the assembly
Creates a cuboid part for parts not in the 3D library
Supports top and bottom placed components
Supports arcs in board outline and cutouts
Exports mounting holes
Allows for the export of selected components or the whole PCB
Includes a library of 3D electronic components
Free support

Features:
Bi-directional
Allows you to use your existing parts
Allows you to include traces and silkscreen in the assembly

Benefits:
Find and correct errors early in the design process
Creates an assembly quickly
Improve communication between PCB and mechanical designers

i have used "CircuitWorks" in the past...

http://www.javelin-tech.com/main/products/pdf/circuitworks.pdf

i have installed in the past solidworks 2010 and circuitworks it was already on it and i linked a design directly from altium....

hope it helps

I think you should request them for trial 15 day version, then get key from this forum by asking their helping
You can mail them to get trial version: info@desktop-eda.com.au

If you exported to PCB view to .stp model

http://wiki.altium.com/display/ADOH/Importing+and+Exporting+Design+Files

and import this file in Solid Works you can add components and export to .idf file an export go back to Altium Designer

more components you can download at the this site

http://www.3dcontentcentral.com/default.aspx

SolidWorks, step 214, or other formats
