How to open CKD files

Did your computer fail to open a CKD file? We explain what CKD files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a CKD file?

We know of 2 different uses of the CKD file type, one of them being Cadkey Design. Read the details below.

The CKD file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a CKD opener may not be able to open all kinds of CKD files. In this case, look through both formats to make sure you find the best suited CKD viewer.

Cadkey Design

These CKD files contain the 2D and 3D designs created in Cadkey, a 2D/3D mechanical CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software. With CKD files, you can manage your CAD data, and you don't have to stick to one strategy. You can have separate files for different parts of your assembly, meaning you can revise each part/section individually.
