What is a SLDDRW file?

A .SLDDRW file is a SolidWorks Drawing file. Files that contain the .slddrw file extension are most commonly associated with the SolidWorks software application. The SolidWorks CAD program is distributed by the Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. and provides users with 3D software tools that allow users to create, simulate and publish 3D data on their computers.

The SolidWorks CAD program allows users to create 2D and 3D designs using the SolidWorks software application in the same way that other similar CAD programs assist in the computer-aided drawing process.

While other computer-aided drawing programs save CAD files with the .cad file suffix, the drawing files created with the SolidWorks CAD software are saved with the .slddrw file extension.
