Either AutoCAD Mechanical desktop (probably Inventor as well) or SolidWorks
can perform this conversion. I would imagine that other solid modeling
programs (Pro-E, Solid Edge, CATIA, etc.) are also capable of doing it. I
mention AutoCAD and SolidWorks because I am familiar with them and know they
can do it.
