JPEG Files

The JPEG translator takes a snapshot of anything displayed in the graphics window of a SOLIDWORKS part, assembly, or drawing document, and exports it as a .jpg file.

A .jpg file is an image file that you can open in most image viewers. The .jpg file displays only the information from the graphics window; toolbars and other areas of the SOLIDWORKS window do not appear.

The JPEG translator is integrated into the SOLIDWORKS software and is always available under Save as type in the Save As dialog box.

To export a SOLIDWORKS document as a JPEG file:

  1. With a SOLIDWORKS document open, click File > Save As.
    The Save As dialog box appears.
  2. Set Save as type to JPEG (*.jpg).
  3. Click Options. See TIFF, Photoshop, and JPEG Export Options.
  4. Type the file name in the File name box, and click Save.
