Opening SLDDRW files

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

What is a SLDDRW 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 that are created with the SolidWorks CAD software are saved with the .slddrw file extension.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
