Not sure if this is what your looking for but if you open a file and hit "file" then "save as" under save as type at the bottom if you select the down arrow SW will list all the file types available. Tom
Sorry, I'm not aware of one. There are definitely quite a number of them. I think almost all of them (except partdot, asmdot, and drwdot) start with sld. - sldlfp, sldbomtbt, slddrt, sldfvt, etc.
Here's an idea... Maybe a stupid one.
Look at all of the command line switches for the dir command. Formulate a dir command that will output a list of all *.sld* files to a text file. Then open in excel and use Excel functions to strip all the extensions into a column. Then do AutoFilter on that column and you'll get a list of all the extensions that start with .sld
Have to look them up under their headings.
Templates are part, drawing, and assembly documents that include user-defined parameters and are the basis for new documents.
You can maintain many different document templates. For example, you can create:
- A document template using millimeters and another template using inches
A document template using ANSI and another template using ISO dimensioning standard
A template for detached drawings
Templates can include settings for such Document Properties as:
- grid spacing
extension line and break line gap
balloon bent leader length
text scale and text display size
To create a template:
- Click New (Standard toolbar) or File, New.
Double-click the type of template that you want to create: Part, Assembly, or Drawing.
On the Document Properties tab, select options to customize your new document template, then click OK.
Click File, Save As.
Select a template type for Save as type:
- Part Templates (*.prtdot)
Assembly Templates (*.asmdot)
Drawing Templates (*.drwdot)
- Type a name for File name.
Browse to a folder, then click Save.
Saving Sheet Formats
To save the sheet format:
- Click File, Save Sheet Format.
Edit File name.
- Click Save.
and of course the 3 main ones
Types of Files
In SolidWorks, you can open any number of part, assembly, or drawing documents at the same time:
SolidWorks gives the three basic file types their own extensions to facilitate finding and filtering files based on content.
From an active document, you can open related files as follows:
- Open a drawing from its associated part or assembly document
Open a part or assembly document from a drawing view
Open a part from the component in its assembly document
Typically, you begin in a part document, creating a part. When you have several parts, you can assemble them in an assembly document. You can create drawings from both parts and assemblies.
and library features
Creating a Library Feature
To create a library feature, you first create a base feature to which you add the features that you want included in the library feature. Library features have the .sldlfp extension. The way you build a library feature affects how you do the following:
As you build the library feature, you can decide to include or to exclude references.
To create a library feature that includes references , you need to dimension the library feature relative to the base part on which you create it. References create dimensions used to position the library feature (*.sldlfp) on the model (*.sldprt).
Library features with face references such as fillets do not need reference dimensions.
To create a library feature without references, create the library feature without dimensions or relations relative to the base part. Instead of using references to position the library feature on the model, you edit the library feature sketch and position that sketch relative to the model.
