What is SLDPRT file?

SLDPRT file contains 3D drawing of an element that is a part of larger project of a device or construction. Such project is stored in a proprietary binary format native to SolidWorks software. The software allow users to design assembly models and save them as SLDASM files, technical drawings, or simulations and animations. Each new SolidWorks CAD version offers new features and additonal functions, so SLDPRT projects created using later versions may not be fully if at all backward-compatible. SolidWorks uses the following format to save project data:

  • SLDPRT – project part file,
  • SLDASM – assembly file that can be composed of many SLDPRT files,
  • SLDDRW – SolidWorks drawing file.

Each above-mentiond format is a container file that stores various project files, including images (preview image), as well as metadata. SLDPRT can be viewed using dedicated project viewer tools. Many CAD applications allow users to import SLDPRT data and convert it to its native format. However, such conversion is not always possible without some data loss.

SolidWorks projects integrate very well with other types of CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) software tools. SLDPRT files are also a good data echange format as they allow users to share relevant parts of their projects without the need to disclose whole project stored in SLDASM files. SolidWorks has been on the market since 1995 and competes head-to-head with other CAD tools. New versions are released each year, available as standard, professional, premium, education, or simulation packages.

Programs that support SLDPRT file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SLDPRT file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SLDPRT file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the SLDPRT file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SLDPRT file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SLDPRT file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SLDPRT file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
