I have some solidworks drawings slddrw from a past project and want to convert them to autocad. Because I am curious and dont have DraftSight what are the advantages of that over saving as.

He would still be working on the file in AutoCAD. I believe the download of draftsight is so he can save it as a dwg since he does not have SW anymore. I completely spaced that line in his post.


I’ll have to remember DraftSight for future reference. Autodesk’s Inventor Fusion will open SolidWorks files and save them as.

It is a free “preview” edition that is operational until April The problem convett that the slddrw has to refer to the sldprt and sldasm files to open. If you dont have these files it soddrw be opened.

Any program sldddrw can do a conversion MUST be able to open these files as well. Your best bet is to find someone with Solidworks or see if you can get a trial or educational version to do the conversion.

If there are not too many I am sure you could upload the drawings and someone here would convert them for you if they are not too confidential.

John, With the drawing open do a SaveAs and select. Go to SW website and download DraftSight.

I’m agreeing with Tony here, get DraftSight. Tony, Steve, My free downloaded copy of DraftSight does not open slddrw files.
