Saving Projects

You can save your projects to a file.

When you click File > Save Project to save a file, the software saves the project in the Projects library in its native .SVPJ format. The .SVPJ format packages all assets associated with the project into one file.

When you click File > Save Project As, you can save the .SVPJ file to a different folder.

The software can open .BIF and .SVPJ files created in earlier versions of Bunkspeed or SOLIDWORKS Visualize. However, once you save the project in SOLIDWORKS Visualize, you cannot open it again in earlier versions.
