SolidWorks viewer for SLDASM, SLDPRT and SLDDRW

Additional SolidWorks File Formats

  • slddrw Native 2D drawing from SolidWorks, derived from a SolidWorks 3D model
  • slddrt SolidWorks template file. Contains sheet templates for creating 2D drawings
  • The Parasolid modeling kernel used by the software is also worth mentioning. Parasolid X_T and X_B files are 3D exchange formats without a history, but are the first choice for exchanging 3D models between CAD/CAM programs with a Parasolid core such as Siemens NX, SolidWorks and Solid Edge.

How Do I Convert SolidWorks SLDASM and SLDPRT Files?

If you do not have CAD software with a SolidWorks interface, the design must be exported from SolidWorks to a common 3D exchange format, such as STEP. For exchange with Siemens NX and Solid Edge, Parasolid x_t or x_b is recommended.

Converting SLDASM and SLDPRT to STEP is also possible with a 3D converter or CAD converter.

3D-Tool Premium includes the 3D-NativeCAD Converter. In addition to native SolidWorks models, this converts models from many common CAD systems into the 3D exchange formats STEP, IGES, SAT and Parasolid X_T supported by many CAD/CAM programs.
